Jannes Eiselen is a thirty five year old South African actor who played the role of the Quartermaster Dufresne in Season One of Black Sails.
Jannes was tragically diagnosed with a rare type of brain cancer that forced him to give up the role at the end of 2013. The cancer, known as a Haemangiopericytoma is an aggressive and poorly understood cancer that is highly resistant to standard medical interventions.
Jannes received four surgeries and 39 sessions of radiotherapy in an attempt to kill the tumor. Despite initial success, the tumor has regrown.
Jannes has now been told that the only way to save his life is alternative treatments.
Help him afford these therapies today by pledging via the crowdfunding campaign.
