Sandra's Fund: In memory of Deon

Sandra Egan is agreeably one of the kindest people with a huge heart.  She met the love of her life, Deon Holtzhausen, in Cayman several years ago.  Married in South Africa, they had just begun their happily ever after.  The love these two people had for each other was immense - they were each others everything. 

Tragically, Deon contacted malaria  and passed away on June 4, 2017.   It goes without saying that Sandra is devastated.  While we cannot ease Sandra's pain, this campaign has been created to help her with any financial burdens.  Deon was uninsured and the hospitalization costs run into the thousands.  The donations raised are intended to help with Deon's hospitalization costs, funeral costs, and the money required for Sandra to live without financial worry for the immediate future.  

As Sandra is in South Africa (an unsupported country for withdrawing money from GoFundMe), her sister, Sinead, is acting as beneficiary in Ireland and will ensure the funds are provided directly to her.  

Please show your support for Sandra and Deon, a man who was larger than life, and who loved her so much.  He was taken from this world far too quickly.  Thank you.
