    Weʼve raised £12,650 to Help riekie get her bone marrow treatment

    Funded on Saturday, 6th August 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Riekie Cloete is a 39-year old single mother of 2 young children, Carla a girl, 8 and a boy, HenRoux, 5. Riekie lives in Bloemfontein, South Africa. She is a Nursing Sister and has helped thousands of people get well. Riekie has been diagnosed with a very aggressive bone marrow cancer. She is currently awaiting a stem cell transplant. This is the ONLY KNOWN CURE and it gives her a massive 70% chance of survival. Riekie only had a 1 in 100k chance of a match and A MATCH HAS BEEN FOUND in Germany! Unfortunately, Riekie's medical aid does not cover foreign donor matches. However, the German Bone Marrow Association has decided to contribute! Riekie however still needs MIN of ZAR300k to get the marrow. We need 6000 people to pledge ZAR100 (£5.3/$7/€6.3)
    In Sep'15 Riekie was diagnosed with MDS/Leukaemia. (
    Riekie is a patient of Dr. Theo Gerdener, in Pretoria. Her cancer cell count is now 300% and blast cell count is at 19%. It is dangerously high, she needs the transplant now!
    In total about ZAR600k is needed! That is for the transplant and additional funds needed, while staying in Pretoria for 4 months. She will be unable to work, while receiving treatment. It is not going to be a walk in the park, and it is going to be a full blast bone marrow transplant. Riekie will be losing her hair, become very sick before getting better. It there will be weekly/monthly tests afterwards for 2yrs. This transplant is her ONLY hope. The aim of this crowd funding appeal is R600k. Please, EVERY cent helps! (ZAR 600,000 = € 37 488 /$ 41 475 / £31 990).
    For information on who Riekie is, her diagnoses, this donation request validation of anything please contact.
