Personal message

Johannes, 31, was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia) on 10 December 2018 after failing to get better when doctors told him he had tonsillitis.
Our newborn baby boy was just 5 weeks old and our oldest, 4 years old... Never have we ever thought this could happen. 

Our journey so far:
Johannes fell ill with tonsillitis and 2 weeks after 3 sets of antibiotics we went to ER where the doctor drew blood and confirmed there are abnormalities in his blood. He was admitted with a white blood count of 95 (should be between 6 and 11). 

The doctor on call transferred him to Netcare Kuilsriver for treatment that began the very next day. We were also informed that he would need a bone marrow transplant from a donor. 

We had to upgrade our medical aid in January as the plan we were on was not sufficient for the treatment he needed. This doubled in amount, to get enough coverage. This all while I am still on maternity leave.

Johannes still needs at least 2 sets of chemo before he gets his transplant. He is hospitalized a month at a time.

Our biggest expenses at this stage are
Pathcare R32 000,
Kuilsrvier Netcare +- R70 000,
WP Blood is about R100 000 (this account is still busy calculating).

These amounts are only for December at this stage. Our medical aid was depleted and the hospital was not part of our network group so we have a 30% co-payment. This was the only hospital where he could treatment with such short notice. 

Any donation big or small is appreciated.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant medical practitioner*
