- gMy name is Jaco Claassen. I just want to tell you a little about myself first. I am blessed with a beautiful family, a wife, a 9 year old son and a 5 month old baby boy
I was diagnosed with Melanoma Stage 3 cancer in 2013. After an operation all cancer was removed. In 2015, I was rediagnosed and my cancer progressed to stage 4. After many operations, the cancer just kept coming back and at this stage surgery is not an option anymore because it has spread to my lung, liver and pancreas. Without treatment my life expectancy is only a few months.
But on a brighter and lighter note, there is treatment available. BUT medication and treatment for late stage cancer is extremely expensive and not covered by our medical aid.
My dream is to have the privelage to grow old with my family and see my boys grow into men. I want to be there for every rugby game cheering them on, all the firsts... and so much more. I would like to spend a lifetime with my lovely wife and oneday sit on a porch looking at our children and grandchildren. I would love for my baby boy to have the chance to get to know me and remember me as his daddy. I would love for my oldest son to remember one day, that I was always there for him at every occasion.
Everyday is a blessing from God. Please help me and my family to turn months into years. A lifetime for our family!
