In August 2018 my 8-year-old baby cousin Mpho Makhobohloane was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), which is a fast-growing cancerous tumour on the stem area of the brain.
The condition is incurable and Doctors gave him a life expectancy of 14 months. In January 2019 he went through 6 weeks of radiotherapy which will hopefully offer him some relief and reduce the size of the tumour but will not cure it as it will continue growing.
Mpho has never been to the beach and his dream is go to the beach and see the ocean.
The aim of the fund is to take him, his mother and two brothers to Durban over the September school holidays. This will also be his first time on a plane. The raised funds will cover their accommodation expenses, Flights, Rental Car and daily Meals.
Please consider donating and making his dream come true.

Mpho Makhobohloane Travel Cause
My name is Teboho. I am crowdfunding for my 8-year-old cousin Mpho Makhobohloane from Wolmarstaad who has a cancerous tumour on the stem area of his brain that is incurable.
Mpho's only dream is to go to the beach and see the ocean, and I would like to send him to Durban with his mother and two brothers over the September school holidays.
