My name is Elsa Briers. In August 2019 my husband Johann, was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer. After processing the initial shock we moved on, as a team, and commenced his treatment.
We've been married for 29 years and raised two beautiful daughters. We are a married couple as well as friends. We have faced, and overcome, many challenges in our life together. Managing Johann's illness has been a part of our daily routine for the past six months.
My husband's initial Chemotherapy treatment program was extensive but, unfortunately, not as successful as we hoped. At the end of November 2019, Johann's illness was re-classified as Stage Four Cancer. The Oncology facility of our medical aid will soon be temporarily depleted for an estimated period of five months, ending August 2020. In February, this year, Johann will need to start with Radiation Therapy, followed by more Chemotherapy.
We would appreciate any donations to assist us with the medical expenses we will be facing between April and August 2020. Throughout his career, my husband has provided for me and our daughters. I am hoping to assist him in his time of need by minimising financial strain in order for Johann top focus on his recovery. Please donate.
