Typical to her nature, commitment and dedication to their goal, she completely ignored the signs of her body telling her to slow down. Because she had very limited medical insurance, it was only about four weeks ago when she ended in hospital that she had to admit that something seriously was wrong and at that point informed us of her situation. After some tests in the following weeks she was diagnosed with breast cancer that has spread to the lymph and one rib.
After a PET scan the doctors in Thailand recommended the best for her is to get back to South Africa as soon as possible before starting any form of treatment.
The National medical system in South Africa is very poor and because Corne has not been living there for the last six years she has no medical aid. Private medical treatment is very expensive and this is why we are asking your help.
As her body is extremely weak and she is now in constant pain, her sister Jackie (a medically trained nurse) flew over to escort her back to South Africa. She is now in her care at home where they’ve started basic treatment.
They will see the Doctor on Thursday the 14th September for further recommendation.
