Leandri's - Warrior for Christ

Personal message

Good day Friends and family

Leandri Is a 32 year old female diagnosed with stage 4 Breast Cancer on 17 September 2019 at the age of 30.

2019 was the start of her 2020 already, on the 1st of September 2019 Leandri had an operation to her foot and Leg. Only 15 days Leandri was back in hospital. This is when she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  On 28 September 2019 the made the move to Port Elizabeth with her family as she also now needed permanent care. With this she had to leave her job from PostNet Hennopspark se was at for 9 Years.

On the first of October 2019 she met with her oncologist for the first time. She started her first chemo on the 8th of October 2019. Only 10 days later she started her losing her hair.  You should know for a woman losing her hair is very traumatic. With no friends and only her mom as her support.

On the 10th of January 2020 Leandri was declared remission. But 2020 despite of Covid had its challenges. On 22 February 2020 Leandri lost her dear friend to a car accident on the Botha Ave off ramp.   

Leandri then had her mastectomy on the 11th of March 2020.  For a young lady losing her hair and now one of her breasts is very traumatic. But I have never seen anyone more positive then Leandri despite all of the above.

But this is not where it has ended. In march she had a follow-up CT Scan to make sure all is still in order, this showed new spots on her lungs, bones and spine. She ended up in a wheelchair to a walking frame and then on crutches. Praise the Lord she is walking today. She then went over to Oral chemo this had many side effects. In June another scan was done followed by a MRI showing it has spread to her Brain as well.  But to end it off she lost her Partner also passed away on 29 May 2020 and 30 May another friend unfortunately took his own life.

On 17 December 2020 Leandri lost a friend to Cancer and together they had a bucket list item that is to go cage diving with the sharks.  

Due to the server condition of her sickness she can currently not work.   And being high risk with virus going around.

Leandri is getting help from her Father and Brother to pay part of her Medical aid but she is still short of R1900. Not only that her medical aid does not pay all her medication and day to day products and the funds for petrol to and from the treatment center, needs to rely on donations from the public.  She has busy opening her own business to get an income 18-0-Four Business solutions.  Leandri is not about to give up but the business is not picking up as yet.

Leandri is still on active treatment for the next 18 weeks.  They will do a scan to see if the new chemo she started yesterday 24 March 2021 is working, she will lose her hair for the 3rd time.

We have created a back a buddy account for her to help with this.
