Personal message

Freddie was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage 3 at almost 17 months old.

Doctors diagnosed Freddie with chronic constipation. We went for a checkup before going on holiday. When they sent him for tests. It showed a tumor (10.5 x 7.8 cm) in his pelvis, causing obstruction. He went for a biopsy, also they inserted a port on the 22nd December 2017.  On the 27th he was diagnosed with cancer. He needed to start chemotherapy immediately.

We were told that I would have to stay in Johannesburg until treatments are done. We were from Marken.

Chemo started on 10th January. During hospital stays, my daughter (5 years) stays with family in Johannesburg.

Freddie went for surgery on the 15th of May to remove the tumor. Most of it was removed but left some in the spinal cord.

We then noticed the port wasn't working. 25th June they inserted a new port. Next morning my son's left upper body was swollen. Went for xray, they discovered  lymphfluids, causing inflammation, also infection. They noticed the old port had broken and was stuck in his heart (7cm long).

28th June we went to a cardiologist to remove the port from heart. They discussed this and decided taking a chance, giving anaesthetic or the infection would spread to his heart.

We're currently running two households. All of our expenses come out of my husbands pocket... Medical, households, transport, special supplements, cleaning supplies etc.

Please support our family to make the stressfull life easier.
