Kyra Burger was born on 15 August 2017, a healthy little baby. She went to daycare for the first time in January 2018; and on the following day her tummy started to work constantly. A Pediatrician was contacted for advice who suspected a case of diarrhea, and so an appointment was scheduled for the next day. During consultation he laid her down flat on her back and pressed on her stomach when he felt her liver was enlarged.
A Sonar, X-rays, and blood tests followed which gave the family hope for any positive news, but sadly Kyra was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer on the 15th of January 2018.
On 18 July 2018 she had her 8th and last chemotherapy session after eight long weeks.
Kyra and family made their way to Rondebosch Hospital in Cape Town on 1 July 2020, to start her bone-marrow process.
Kyra started Gr. R on 11 January 2023 and she absolutely loves it, her school, her teacher and all her friends. She also started at a dance school, and started hockey.
On 1 Nov 2020 she started on the DFMO Clinical trial in America North Carolina Charlotte. We had to travel there about 5 times, get the medication and come back. She ended her 2 year treatment on 3 Nov 2022 and is in remission for 2 years and 3 months. In October 2022 I received the outstanding account from Levine’s Children Hospital in America which we still have to pay.
She still has to go for labs, scans and checkups for the next few years, but thank the Lord that He healed her. She is 5years old and a superstar and the love of our lives.”
