Both my sons, aged 46yrs and 42yrs, has been diagnosed with cancer since January 2019.The second son with stage 1 cancer. managed and is currently well. James the elder was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer 6 weeks ago.
He works in Bloemfontein South Africa as a truck driver. He stays in a villa as supplied by his employer. No work no pay. No health benefits. No paid or any sick leave.
His wife and 4 children between 4 and 12 yrs old is living 30 Km from Bloemfontein, she has a job and they are living in a one bed roomed flat.
James has started chemo therapy today the 08/07/2019. He is finding it difficult to carry on working. iI he does not work there is no income or any way to support his children. school fees, aftercare, etc.
James has no car and is walking to and from his work and to the hospital almost 8Km per day.
I am a retired nursing sister and have, during my career of 45 yrs, done many a fundraising for my patients, NGO's and other worthy causes.
