_Update 10th April 2019_
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you little Musa just passed on. He passed away on Wednesday, 10th April 2019.
Any donations received will go towards assisting the family with the funeral costs.
Trevor Bongumusa Ngwenya, known as Musa was born 30 October 2016.
On 23.05.2018 my wife and I, rushed little Musa to Far East Rand Hospital after his nose started bleeding and he vomited blood. He was in the hospital until 10.06.2018 and given a date to take him for further assessments at JHB Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital.
On 17.06.2018 Musa underwent further tests and was admitted to the hospital. The following day we were given the heart-breaking news by Prof. Janet Poole and a social worker that Musa has AML M6 (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). Musa started with Chemotherapy that same week. He was moved between Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital and the CHOC house (Childhood Cancer Foundation) in Saxonworld.
Thus far he has received Chemotherapy, Blood Transfusions, Bone Marrow etc. His last admission date was 2 February 2019 but sadly he was discharged on 13 February 2019 with the bad news that the Chemotherapy has not worked, and he had relapsed.
We were told that there is nothing further that they can do for him and the family needs to support him during this time where his condition will deteriorate.
We would like to raise funds for Musa to receive Ozone Therapy at Natra-Heal Wellness Centre in Edenvale under Dr. Steve Hansen.
The funds raised will also assist with public transport cost to and from treatment, any medication Musa will need, food/special drinks as he is not really eating now, Sanitation etc.
R150 Dr. Hansen Consultation
R2,000 Ozone Sauna - 3 Sessions/week
R900 Taxi - 3 x Per Week @ R75/day
R2,000 Special Dietary Requirements
R7,300 Estimate per month
R43,800 Total Estimate for 6 Months
Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
