Luzuko Mtande came to South Africa to access radiation treatment that would save his life but because he is not an SA citizen, the process is more complicated.
Johannesburg, South Africa (26 November 2020) – Little Luzuko has travelled all the way from the Kingdom of Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, to get treatment for High-Risk Neuroblastoma. The two-year-old needs radiation therapy but because he isn’t a South African citizen, his family must pay for the treatment themselves.
Nadia Lewis, a South African with a passion for helping young cancer patients, heard about Luzuko’s story and decided to help the family raise the money needed to cover his treatment.
“Sadly this adorable little man was diagnosed with High-Risk Neuroblastoma at the tender age of one on 17th of March 2020. Luzuko has since then received chemotherapy and an Autologous stem cell transplant, and as part of his treatment protocol, he also requires Radiation therapy.
We ask you with a humble heart to assist with funding for this little champs’ treatment. Any donation, big or small, will be highly appreciated as the radiotherapy will assist in consolidating the treatment and a chance of cure for his high-risk malignancy.” – Nadia Lewis
Nadia hopes to raise R140,000.00 for his treatment and have so far raised just over R33,000.00. If you would like to support her with the crowdfund for Luzuko, you can do so here.
