BACKGROUND: Nine-year-old Johvan Heefer is in Grade 3. Instead of battling maths and reading or playing rugby with his friends - Johvan is battling a much bigger foe. Johvan is very ill with blood cancer. He is receiving aggressive chemo that makes him too ill to go to school. His health has deteriorated rapidly and he now needs a wheelchair and oxygen. His single mom, Ilze, is doing her best and has a medical aid, but the fund is depleted. She’s battling to work, look after Johvan, get him to hospital in Pretoria, and make ends meet. Johvan’s school friends miss him and wish he could feel better and join them in class. The school wants to help this become a reality.

ORIGINAL REQUEST:

Goeie môre Good Morning Angels span, 

Ons skryf die brief names Laerskool Middelburg. 

Ons as skool sal graag betrokke wil raak by GMA names ’n leering.

Juvan is 'n 9-jarige seuntjie wat ly aan ver-gevorderde bloedkanker. Juvan se mamma is 'n enkel ouer wat sukkel om die mediese onkostes te betaal. Sy het ’n mediese fonds, maar dit is reeds uitgeput. Juvan gaan tans so vinnig agter-uit dat hy reeds in 'n rolstoel is en suurstof benodig. 

Laerskool Middelburg hou elke jaar die "Wees Wakker Fees”, hierdie jaar op 8-9 September. Dis ’n baie gewilde fees en is besig om naam te maak. Ons as skool wil graag 'n gedeelte van die wins  aan Juvan se mamma gee om haar te help met van die mediese onkostes.

Ons kan nie aan 'n beter manier dink om die gesin te ondersteun as om die Good Morning Angels span deel te maak van ons ondersteunings veldtog vir die gesin.

Juvan verswak daagliks en om die finansiele las op die gesin te verlig vra ons dat julle ons so spoedig moontlik terugvoer kan gee rakend hierdie gesin. Hoop om vinnig van julle te hoor.

Groete,

Chanelle Verwey
