Little fighters stories:
Please feel free to read all the stories of our little fighters. PLEASE NOTE: Not all the photographs in our Little Fighters Albums are nice to look at. Some of the photographs depict the horrid realities of Childhood Cancer. Sensitive viewers should be mindful.
Hendrik is 8 years old and in Grade 3. He was a normal healthy child, full of life. Loves the outdoors - fishing & hunting and is a knife collector.
He loves rugby (a Stormers fan) and cricket.
He has two siblings, his little sister Izanli is 5 years, and his baby brother Manus is all of 20 months.
Mommy Izel took Hendrik for a normal sugar level test, which came out normal. But the doctor noticed some bruises, which lead to more tests, and Hendrik was diagnosed with AML Leukemia on the 6th of May 2015.
Hendrik started Chemo Mommy Izel says he is taking the treatment pretty well with no ill side effects as of yet!
Hendrik's Aunt is a cancer Survivor, she had liver-cancer when she was 18 months old, and the very same doctor who treated his Aunt 19 years ago, is now also Hendrik's doctor.
