Helping the Williams family cope with the loss of their son.

We hear too often about families fighting cancer ... and way too often that the patient is one of the children. That is the case with the Williams-family: Mom Hester, dad Brandon, 12-year old Christie and 8-year old Veronica. They lost 16-year old Brenden to bone cancer last month. He fought a brave battle for 10 months, with his family, friends and doctors doing all they could to save him from the disease.

Initial Request

On the 21st of March the battle ended ... Now, the family have to pick up their lives and carry on - like Brenden wanted them to. The family don't have a medical aid and dad took out personal loans and other debt to cover the costs as well as he could - some R60 000,00 in total. It also meant that there was no extra money for anything other than Brenden's treatment for the past year - and this is bound to continue for some years to come while the debt is being paid off. So, how does one fulfill Brenden's last request on his death bed to family friend, Christelle de Wet, to please do something special for his sisters and parents to say thank you from him, once he's gone? And, he had something very special in mind ... That's why she contacted the Good Morning Angels ....

ORIGINAL REQUEST:

Liewe "Angels"

Ek vra vandag nie veel, maar ek weet nie waar en wie anders ek kan vra nie.

Huisvriende van my, die Williams-gesin, het sopas hulle geveg met kanker afgesluit.

Ouboet Brenden(16) het 10 maande lank 'n dapper stryd teen kanker geveg, dag in en dag uit.
Sy mamma en pappa het egter nie 'n mediese fonds gehad nie, so elke moontlike geldjie het gegaan vir Brenden se kanker behandeling, en die laaste paar maande vir die liters en liters morfien om die pyn te beheer..

Brenden het ongelukkig sy stryd teen beenkanker verloor op 21 Maart 2013..

http://www.facebook.com/Battle4Brenden?ref=ts&fref=ts - hier is die link na die fondsinsameling groep wat ek vir Brenden geld ingesamel het

Hoekom ek egter skryf, is 'n kreet vir die wat agter gebly het na hierdie verskriklike nagmerrie, pyn en ondraagbare hartseer.
Ekt maande lank gehelp met fondsinsamelings vir Brenden se behandeling en vir onkostes vir die gesin met die kanker..

Maar, nederige Brenden het my een laaste ding gevra:

"Christelle, as ek nie meer hier is nie, sal jy asb daar wees vir my sussies en my ouers, en iets spesiaal vir hulle reel? ek sal nooit die kans hê om te kan dankie sê vir alles wat hulle moes opoffer sodat ek versorg kan word nie"

Wel... dis hoekom ek nou juis skryf..vir twee onselfsugtige sussies wat soveel vir hul boetie opgeoffer het... Veronica (8) en Christie (12)

As daar een ding is wat die sussies die graagste wil hê, is dit Justin Bieber kaartjies..
Ons wou destyds vir hulle kaartjies koop toe die verkope oopgemaak het, maar die kaartjies se geldjies moes ongelukkig toe vir Ouboet medikasie koop.
Hulle sal enige enige iets doen vir kaartjies.
Daar is niemand anders in hierdie lewe wat ek glo Justin Bieber kaartjies meer wil hê of verdien as hierdie twee meisies nie.

Byvoorbaat dankie,
Christelle de Wet
