Bianca Claassen is a beautiful young teenager with a heart of gold. She is 16 years old and is from South Africa.
About a year ago, Bianca had heart arythmia and the doctor's couldn't pin point the cause and she was given medication to treat the symptoms. She continued to feel constantly tired and weak, and this was attributed to the arythmia diagnosis.
A year later, and Bianca showed no signs of improvement, and a few weeks ago a lump developed on Bianca's neck. Her parents took her for tests and tests revealed elevated white blood cell count. Her Thyroid is fine. The doctor prescribed more tests, a scan and a biopsy of the lump on her neck, which had multiplied to form more lumps in a very short space of time.
The tests were done and doctors confirmed that Bianca has Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma and will need extensive Chemotherapy and other relevant treatment. Bianca's parents do have a medical aid, but with limited cover.
