Jolene is a 36-year-old mom with a daughter of 6. She has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Heart Sack Cancer, Liver Cancer, Bone Cancer and Lung cancer in 2015 she is still living now. She cannot afford to carry on with her treatment because of not being able to work as she is on disability. She owes her medical aid provider an amount of R52,735.43 before they will carry on with any treatment. Because they stopped her medical aid, she maxed all her funds and cannot afford the premiums of R10,500.00 a month. Her fees for chemo treatment are around R26,000.00 a month excluding doctors, blood tests, fuel and maintenance on her car. Doctors's say because she is so young the cancer is more aggressive. She is holding on but cannot cope without assistance. Her fiancé stopped working to take care of her.
They made a bad choice in investing money to support them and lost all because of the scam. They did not go on a holiday for the last 7 years because they cannot afford to go. They cannot give any extra spending money or attend any birthday parties for their daughter. They are behind on school fees and rent. Her fiancé is in the market for work again but employment is not so easy to find. Jolene is the most loving person I know and is always smiling does not matter what live gives her she gives back to all around her. Please contribute to the cause so that they can settle the medical bills.
*Funds raised will be paid directly to Jolene's medical aid provider*
