Little Jason English from Standerton

Little Jason English from Standerton

Personal message

My Name is Renette De Sousa (59) and I live in Standerton. I am raising funds for young Jason English who is diagnosed with cancer. I have known his mom, Mariaan, since she was a little girl in school.

Mariaan worked part-time at local Spar while in school. After school, started working on a permanent basis at Spar. Worked herself up from cashier to working in the office with great responsibilities. Got married. Had one son. Had a miscarriage. Could not have more children.

Together with husband Steven, they adopted another son a year or so ago. In the meantime, her husband has started his own business (Brake and Clutch) in Standerton and Mariaan joined him in the business. The business is still in growing stage. They are doing ok.

Unfortunately, tragedy struck. Jason was diagnosed with cancer. They do have medical aid. There are a lot of outstanding bills and bills still flooding in. Because they are living in Standerton and treatment is only available in Pretoria, they need to travel to Pretoria and back on a weekly basis for Jason's chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Once a month, Mariaan and Jason leave Standerton early on Monday morning, stay over at a cheap guest house for the week (R1200 for the both of them), then back on Friday again. This happens once a month for a week. Diesel and tollgates add another R1000 per trip. Then, smaller, seemingly insignificant stuff. It all adds up...

Mariaan has always been very active, supportive and giving in fundraisers for other people. I thought if people in our town are aware of the family's situation, they would want to contribute and help this family.

This is Jason's story in nutshell from April 2019 up until now.
Jason het 8ste April begin kla van oorpyn, sy ma hom Maandag dr toe gevat. Dr se dis 'n oorinfeksie, en hom antibiotika gegee, 'n 5dag kursus. Toe antibiotika klaar het sy linker oog skeel getrek, hy het visie verloor en sy pupile het baie groot geraak, sy ma raak bekommerd oor die oog wat so skeel trek, en vat hom toe die Dinsdag na Mark Lawrence oogarts, waar Herman, onmiddelik 'n afspraak maak, met oog spesialis, en sorg dat die volgende dag ingedruk word, Jason word onmiddelik opgeneem by Kloof Mediclinic in Pretoria, waar 'n internis, neuroloog, neurosjirurg, en 'n oog, keel en kaak sjrurg, oor hom gesit word, hul toets Jason vir herpes virus, wat ook die simptome kan he, hy toets positief, hulle begin met behandeling op binne aarse kortisoon, die interniss se toe Jason se oog het te gou skeel getrek, en vra toe vir 'n MRI scan, en 'n CT scan, kry hul toe 'n gewas in die sinusholte net onder.die oog. Hul het op die 3de Mei 2019, 'n emnolisasie gedoen, wat basies 'n angiogram in reverse is, i.p.v are oopmaak moes hulle die are blok, om bloeding te vermy tydens die operasie, toe op die 8ste Mei, het hulle weereens vir Jason op die vakansiedag ingedruk, en die gewas verwyder, hy was 6 ure in teater, hulle het sy bolip opgelig en sy bo-kaak laat sak om die gewas uit te haal, gewas is gestuur vir toetse en het terug gekom as rhapdomyasarcoma, wat kanker in die spierweefsel is, hy is toe op die 30ste Mei 2019 vir die derde keer teater toe waar hulle die port ingesit het. Rekening sover van Kloof hospitaal gekry. Bybetaling van R35 940.00 moet inbetaal, daar is ook klomp ander klein rekeningkies wat saam omtrent R10 000 is. Verdere rekeninge sekerlik nog oppad. Dan ander kostes soos diesel, R1000 per week, goedkoop gastehuis teen R1200 per week, dan is dit nog die spesiale kkein goedjies.

Funds will be used for the following:
To pay outstanding medical bills first and foremost
Then to cover diesel, accommodation, and food on their monthly trips to Pretoria and back
If enough is raised, will also be used to cover smaller stuff eg Dove baby products, etc that Jason has to use now

Your donations will allow his parents to continue taking him for his treatments and will mean that bills will be paid. No parent should be in a situation where they cannot give their child the treatment he/she needs because of lack of finances. It will also teach Jason that when your heart and hands are open to helping others (like his Mommy used to do), it comes right back to you when you are in need of other people's help, support and finances.

*Funds raised will go directly to the medical bills, and then to the family for their travel costs and Jason's needs*
