A operation for my fiance - melonoma skin cancer

A operation for my fiance - melonoma skin cancer

Personal message

My name is Nikita Smuts (23) and I live in Centurion, Gauteng.

Jan Liebenberg and I met 4 years ago and started dating. 1 year ago he proposed and I said Yes! A few weeks after we got engaged I noticed a large lump on his neck. At first, the GP diagnosed it as a simple infection, however, after the antibiotics did not work he was then diagnosed with melanoma.

He has been receiving chemo treatment at a public hospital because he is not on medical aid and the melanoma has gone into his blood. However, after chemo we noticed more lumps appearing on his neck.

I am fundraising in order to raise money for an operation to remove the lumps on his neck.

My inspiration is Jan. I am currently doing my honours at the University of Pretoria so I am not earning any money. Jan is so supportive of my studies and all I want to do is make sure he is happy and healthy and be the one supporting him.

The operation needs to take place as soon as possible. Preferably latest by November.

Funds will be used for the operation which includes the consultations and doctors appointments, day admission, oxygen in Theatre, anesthetic machine, theatre and ward materials, doctors operating
fee, theatre time fee, anesthetist fee, testing fees of the lumps and all medicine.

The funds will potentially save Jan's life. Melanoma is a very aggressive form of cancer and if left untreated for long these lumps can be potentially fatal.

*Funds raised will go directly to the hospital*
