Paula was diagnosed in December 2017 with terminal stage 4 colon cancer. After having major surgery on December 13th 2017, they cut out half of her colon, 2/3 of her bladder where the tumor has spread and then also confirmed that the cancer has spread to her liver. She has started aggressive chemo treatment in February 2018 and has ever since been getting treatment. After further tests in September 2018, it has been confirmed that the cancer has now spread to the right side of her lung. This has now enforced an even more aggressive chemo treatment.
After all this, she has lost her job, and this is why they are living in a huge financial strain, trying to get by everyday and then also the emotional strain of not being able to see or hold her children or spend much time with them, due to having to sell her car and moving into a very tiny flat. Her wedding has also been cancelled for now until we can maybe make some sort of plan to make their day special for them, but she prefers to get better before doing so.
Paula's medical aid is only covered until August this year, after that she will no longer have funds to carry her medical aid and it will then cause treatment to stop. After being terminated from her work end of last year, they are struggling to survive on R6000 a month. Unfortunately with Paula's mom also struggling financially, the family cannot carry their daily expences as well.
Funds raised will go towards Paula's medical aid installments of R3234.00 that is being debited from her bank account every month. This would put some relief to their daily stress, nevermind the rent and food and petrol they still need to make a plan for.
