- The proud aunt has also praised the young soccer player for his fighting spirit in evading the devastating cancer
It’s a story of mixed feelings for a family in Pretoria, Tshwane after learning that their three-year-old son has been cured of cancer. According to a post on social media through @N_Hassim, her nephew Motheo Moshangoane is a soccer star and a cancer survivor but the medical bills are hectic at R100k.
The aunt further relayed the story, saying the young footballer just tested cancer-free on Thursday last week, but the story has somewhat left a sour taste as they need more support from Mzansi and beyond.
According to the stunning aunt, they need to raise almost R100 000 for the medical bills and they have pleaded for help from good Samaritans.
Wrote @N_Hassim on Twitter:
“Everyone, this is my nephew Motheo "BK" Mashangoane (3yrs). Our beautiful soccer star. He is a cancer survivor. He just tested cancer-free on Thursday, with an outstanding medical bill of almost R100k. Our family is asking for your help to cover this bill.”
In addition, the proud aunt has added that the young man has fought so hard for his life and any donations would be welcomed. She added:
“He fought so hard! For a long time and like a star that he's always been, he made it. However, recently, a hospital bill of close to R100k has been sent to our family and we are trying to raise it to pay for the remaining costs.
“Any amount would make a huge difference to our family, and we are requesting that you help us share and retweet this hashtag, to help make our little baby a star again.”
