Sharon Harvey Cancer cause

Sharon Harvey Cancer cause

Personal message

In 2014, our mother was diagnosed with throat cancer. After months of radiation and three years of chemotherapy, her cancer has become unresponsive to these treatments. Due to the tumor’s proximity to vital nerves, it is inoperable. In October 2018, her oncologist advised to attempt an immunotherapy drug.
Since starting the immunotherapy drug in October, the tumors appear to be responding and shrinking. This is hugely encouraging, however, time to remission is uncertain.

Since 2014, she has been dependent on South African public healthcare, which delayed diagnoses and treatment. In the past 18 months we have managed to get private healthcare access via a medical aid scheme, however, this does not cover the full cost of treatment.

Whilst effective, the immunotherapy drug is an extremely high cost drug, costing R100,000 every 3 week cycle. Due to the high cost, the medical aid scheme (at their discretion) decided to limit cover to 75%, leaving our family liable for R25 000 every 3 weeks, excluding scans, blood tests etc.
Given the costs involved and the uncertainty on how long she will need this treatment, we humbly ask for any financial help you can offer to assist us in keeping our mom on this treatment.

Thank you for whatever support you can give, our mom is a warm person who gives to those around her, particularly helping less privileged children in her community.

If you cannot help financially, please share this story and pray for her return to health.
Thank you!
The Harvey Family
