Cancer took my leg but not my life Campaign
Steph, Sandy (Steph's wife) and Tristan (their son) Naudé have been torrid. Late last year, Steph fell through a ceiling and injured himself badly. He was bed-bound as he had injured his spine.
A few months ago, he noticed a lump just below his knee, which had started restricting the blood flow to the rest of his leg. After being hospitalised in Richard’s Bay and seeing an oncologist, he was referred to Netcare Umhlanga. Sandy’s dad died suddenly during this time. Due to Steph's hospitalisation, he and Sandy could not attend the funeral.
On Friday, 15 September, Steph had a 7.5-hour op to remove the sarcoma in his leg.
On Wednesday, 20 September, his results came back. He had cancer in his lower leg. That day, he had another op to clean the wound, which was infected after the initial surgery.
On Friday, 29 September, his left leg was amputated above the knee. He is currently recovering in hospital.
Please let us support the Naudé family during this challenging time.
