Brain Cancer Surgery support.

Our very dear friend Johann was diagnosed with brain cancer while visiting his brother in South Africa. His brother Pieter has Stage 4 bladder cancer and Johann had planned the trip to be there for him when this all came about. Johann and his wife have always gone the extra mile for others, never expecting anything in return, but this is now our turn to be there for them in their hour of need. He and his wife have gone through a very difficult time having to deal with his brother's condition and are now dealing with Johann's health as well. He had to cut his visit to South Africa short and is now in the USA under the care of Mayo in Minnesota and will be undergoing intensive brain surgery  Tuesday 20th.

They have four beautiful children aged 12, 8, 5 and 2, who are staying with family and friends during this time, and are missing their mommy and daddy terribly.

We have been providing them with lodging, meals and transportation up to this point and will be helping to carry their load wherever possible. I'm asking that you prayerfully consider helping us to cover the costs that have been incurred. Any amount donated will greatly help with this financial burden. We also want to thank all who have given already from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you for reading this message and for any donation regardless of the amount.
