“Miné van der Merwe was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2019 and had a bone marrow transplant in 2020. She fought cancer twice in 1 year. In January 2021 she went through the unimaginable when she almost lost her life due to chicken pox that went internally and affected her heart, lungs and liver.
She was in ICU fighting for her life for 3 months. She had to learn how to walk again. After almost 4 months in hospital she is still fighting the battle against healing completely. She suffers from Pneumatosis (air in the walls of her intestines) and needs to be careful of what she is eating.
She is currently in remission after the cancer and needs to visit the doctor every 6 months for extensive blood tests. We humbly ask anyone who can help to assist us with Miné’s medical expenses in order to keep on providing health care to her as needed.”
Please open your heart and support our fundraising efforts for this young cancer warrior; proceeds from the “Brave Heart Bracelets” and “Brave Warrior Bracelet Set” are donated to Miné`s ongoing medical care and expenses. Together we CAN make a positive difference!
Alternatively, please consider a donation; any and all donations welcome. REF: Miné van der Merwe.
