My name is Mandi Venter (33) and I live in Bloemfontein.
My daughter, Kyra Burger, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer last year in January 2018.
Kyra has been getting treatment for a year and 4 months and in this time they have removed the tumour and she had radiation for spots on her liver. Unfortunately, this was unsuccessful and she now has to go for more chemo, but this time stronger chemo. They did a scan and the liver looks very good with almost no spots anymore but she will still be getting chemo...
We are raising funds because we want to take her overseas for immune therapy treatment as soon as her treatment in SA is finished. This therapy is what she needs in order to not have a relapse later but it is very expensive and medical aid does not pay for it.
I will be doing the Kway Skyrun 100km trailrun on 16 November 2019 to help raise funds to make it possible to take her overseas. Businesses/individuaIs can donate for every 10km that I will be doing, seeing as the 100km takes 24 hours to 30 hours depending on the weather people can set a time and donate if I do it under 24 hours, if they donate they can just say in the messege for how many km or set a time limit, I will do anything to make sure my daughter gets the treatment she needs but we need your help. I am a runner, God gave me the talent to run for long distances and I want to use this to help my daughter.
We still have to send all Kyra's scans and reports to the docters in Barcelona but will do that as soon as she is finished with treatment in South Africa, and then we will have a conference call with the docters overseas to find out what our options will be, but we are raising funds in the meantime so that when we know we want to take her immediately, I know the treatment is very expensive and we dont have that kind of money and raising it wont happen over night or in a years time, her medical aid also do not cover anything for the treatment, I dont want to waste time, we want to take her immediately as soon as she is finished in SA.
Your donation will have a very positive impact on Kyra's life. It will make her life expectancy much higher and it will be the last step which we have to take to make sure she is totally clean and free of this monster disease and that she will have the life she deserves. Please help us take our precious daughter to get the treatment she needs. We need your help, we can not do this without you.
For those who do not know what the Skyrun is, here is a short explanation as well as a link explaining the Skyrun 100km.
**The SkyRun 100 is unique in that it is truly self-supported and self-navigational races, where athletes tackle the remote terrain of the Witteberg Mountain range with a Map a Compass or GPS unit and a back pack containing all there food, water and compulsory equipment that will enable them to survive in this harsh environment.
*Funds raised will be administered by BackaBuddy into a bank account in Kyra's name for her immunotherapy treatment*
