SAVING LITTLE RYAN FROM CANCER – GOAL R 200 000
Ryan a 5 year old boy was diagnosed six months ago with an seaside Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma. It has invaded his pelvic bone, heart and lungs and started in his bladder. He has a 40 week regime of chemotherapy, had three surgeries so far and is undergoing 35 radiation sessions.
We as his parents want to give him the best possible care possible. We travel 5 hours every week for chemo and during radiation have to stay in Johannesburg as it is a daily session. We have a 9 year old daughter. We are trying to keep our family together.
I as a mom/ Charlotte was a Chiropractor and closed my practice on diagnosis. My husband Tony is a farmer in Limpopo near the Soutpansberg mountain range. Times are tough between dry conditions and not affording medical and transport bills. We have already spent in excess of R250000 but need to keep going as we are not yet half way.
Ryan is incredible and from an initial oncology consult of he will die or the chemo will kill him to obviously a second opinion he is fighting his tumour that originally filled his entire pelvis and scrotum to minimalism it all and responding exceptionally well.
Each trip is around R3000. That excludes medical bills and food. And not to mention accommodation.. We are all positive and know although the road is a hard and long one we can do it and will never five up our fight together!
We are an extremely close family unit and being apart is extremely difficult so we try travel every week to spend the weekends as a family. The nurses in iCU tried telling us our daughter couldn’t be there and after many years the nurse called her management and arranged her to be Abel to sit with us all and she said she had never seen such a close family.
Please help us help Ryan and keep our family together as much as possible in this time. Help us afford the best outcome and treatment as his Oncologist we are under says good things amazing things are happening!
