Please find it in your heart to help Daryl, a husband and loving father of two teenagers who at the age of 45 year is in the battle for his life. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer which has spread to his lymphatic system, liver and lungs. After the surgical removal of a tumour, numerous chemo and radiation treatments he was informed that his cancer has now reached the terminal and incurable stage. Additional standard chemo treatments will now only serve to slow the further progression of this dreaded disease and only if he is able to get the “add-ons” not covered by medical aid which come at a huge cost. To avoid the serious side effects that come with this additional treatments and there being no guarantee that it may work, he has rather decided to explore alternative treatment options. Unfortunately, this too comes at a tremendous cost, as it is not covered by medical aid of course. We are trying to raise funds to assist funding this endeavour. Even though the odds are stacked against him this might give him the opportunity to experience the miracle of healing by nature and God without the nasty side effects. If however the disease is to claim the maximum toll, at the very least your generosity will assist in, providing the much needed palliative care and a secured supply of the medication he will need to cope with the symptoms to come. As has been highlighted over and over to us by all doctors concerned, is that if it comes to this point, we need to do our best to make his remaining time as comfortable and stress free as possible.
We thank you for taking the time to read his story and if it is only to include him in your prayers or for sharing his cause we are most grateful.
