Helping Caity Campaign
On the 5th of September 2023, my sister Caity (26 yrs) was diagnosed with a rare STUMP (Smooth Muscle Tumor Uncertain of Malignant Potential) tumor which was confirmed to be cancerous. A couple weeks before this, she had seen a fertility specialist who removed what we thought at the time to be just a fibroid so the Dr could preserve the lining of her uterus with the hope of being able to have children in the future. Within two weeks of that procedure the growth had returned along with all the symptoms of heavy bleeding and anaemia. Because of the aggressiveness of the tumor the specialist oncology gynaecologist said that they will have to perform a partial hysterectomy leaving just her ovaries behind.
The Dr would like to freeze some of Caity's eggs so that her and her husband Kevin can have the chance of having their own children one day.The Dr also suggested that Caity should have some genetic testing done as the last 3 generations from my Mom's side of the family have passed on due to cancer.
If you have read Caity's story and are able help her defray some of these medicals bills that are going to be thrown in her direction, I would really appreciate it and I know it would mean the world to her as well. We trust the Lord to provide for our every need but both my sister and I have seen throughout our life how the Lord loves to provide for his children through the people around us.
The money that is raised will go towards Caity and Kev to help them pay for the freezing of her eggs and genetic testing as well as any medical bill that their medical aid won't cover.
