Let's help Rudy kick cancer's butt!

Personal message

My name is Rousselle. My husband, Rudy, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in November 2018. We are from Gauteng, South Africa. 

My husband is 41 years old and we have 2 little boys. He was diagnosed with a stubborn strain of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. The doctor's have tried 2 types of chemotherapy, and is now trying a third.

The best treatment for his Cancer is Polivy (Immunotherapy-the drug is also called Polatuzumab). This drug has proven well in placing patients such as him in remission. However it is only FDA approved in the United States and certain parts of Europe, even though some South Africans have also used it. Hence, at this moment medical aids will not pay for the drug, and if we are to use it we need to order it.

The drug costs approximately R1 500 000-R1 800 000. He has been through horrible side-effects with each chemotherapy and has caught many infections due to his weakened immune system. This drug works better than chemotherapy, for his particular cancer, with minimal harm to his body.

Reaching our target will mean that Rudy will have a greater chance at a long happy life with his family and that his sons will have their dad. I will have my husband by my side for many years. It will also create awareness of the efficacy of the drug.

The drug is approximately R1 500 000 for the amount required for the course. This also depends on his weight. It could amount to more with importing fees, commissions and drug administration etc. We are not quite sure yet.  

 

*A portion of funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution. The remaining funds will be managed by the campaign creator*
