Personal message

My name is Stéfan Louw (46) and I live in Parys, Free State. I am raising funds for my wife, Marisa Louw.

Marisa was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive breast cancer known as lobular pleomorphic carcinoma. Our medical aid is not covering all her treatment costs and she has no dread disease cover. We are both freelancers and are struggling to pay all her outstanding medical bills for cancer treatments.

Reaching my target will mean that my wife can focus on getting better instead of worrying about where she is going to find enough work while receiving chemo and trying to fight her battle with cancer.

Since her diagnoses at the end of July 2019 she has undergone various diagnostic tests (radiology and pathology), had a double mastectomy on 30 August 2019 and will be starting chemo on 18 October 2019. To date, the portion of the bills that the medical aid has not covered amounts to R56,000. More costs are expected to be left unpaid by the medical aid in the months to come. All funds raised will be paid over to the various medical professionals as received
