Eddie Gouws our fighter Campaign

Eddie needs our help to get funding for immunotherapy. Diagnosed in 2021 with stage 3 melanoma which had formed tumors in his lymphnodes he has be fighting the dreaded C since. Melanoma does not always react with chemotherapy so all he has been able to do to this point is surgically remove the tumors and go for radiation treatments. Most recently the cancer has spread to the lymphnodes of the lungs which cannot be surgically removed. He has had radiation treatments which the PET CT scan showed has not been successful. 1 tumor grew while the other shrank minimally. Our only hope is immunotherapy which has shown very promising results in the medical trials. Unfortunately our medical aid does not cover this at all. We have gone through all the funding requisitions and have managed to get the cost down to R82 000 which is still out of our reach bit with your help we hope it will become possible. 
He is a loving father of 2 and the love of my life. The thought of losing him because we cant afford the treatment is killing me. When people ask if there is a price to someone life i now know i can answer there is and its not an easy statement to come to terms with. Please help us keep him around for as many years possible.
