My name is Lesley-Ann Coetzee, I am 53 years old and I live in Port Elizabeth. I have a very dear neighbor who was diagnosed in November 2018 with Colon cancer stage 4, which spread to her liver. She has 5 tumors in her liver and 1 tumor in her colon.
Tania has been receiving her chemo treatments every second week at the hospital, as the Doctors first tried the port and then the pic which unfortunately didn't work for her as she was prone to getting infections. Now last week she was notified that the medical aid no longer can pay for the Avastin and she needs to pay an additional R5200 per treatment for the last 4 treatments which still need to be done, this is over and above the R3190 she pays for every treatment, as well as shortfalls on blood work done every time she receives her treatment.
Once she has completed her treatment she will be needing to go for a scan which she will be needing to pay which is an estimated amount of R13000.00.
Well she is being admitted on Wednesday 17 April for the first of her last 4 treatments and her next treatments will be 01 May, 15 May, 29 May 2019, this is if all her blood counts are fine to receive chemo.
The funds raised will be used to pay for her Avastin @ R5200 as well as the R3190 which she pays on every treatment she receives. The funds will also be used to pay for the scan and any shortfalls she has from the pathologists for blood work done.
This will assist her immensely financially as she is really struggling to meet all these medical bills which are just rolling in.
