A Cape Town mother is looking for financial help to get her 18-year-old daughter, Sharon-Rose Brandt, the chemotherapy treatment she desperately needs, a report says.
According to IOL, Brandt from Athlone was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2019.
“In March that year, her right ovary was removed but the cancer returned a few months later and has since spread to her stomach,” the report said.
The mother, Esther Brandt, 38, said the cancer has turned into a tumour.
The teen requires at least three cycles of chemotherapy, each costing R26 000.
The hospital stay would cost R3 000 a night, excluding the cost of medication and doctors’ fees, the report said.
