Barry Deysel Cancer Fund

Barry Deysel is a 24 year young man in South Africa. Barry was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer in Sept 2015. He had to give up his Trade as Boilermaker and since then he is in a battle against this disease.

​He has exhausted all  "possible" chemo therapy and treatments, had numerous test, scans blood transfusions, biopsies and a Stem cell harvesting done. In February 2017 he was told by his Oncologist that they could  not do anything more in South Africa to cure his cancer. It has now been 3 months since and he is rapidly getting weaker by the day, it is by God's Grace that the Oncologist told us of a drug named Brentuximab Vedotin (SGN-35) from overseas. It has not been registered in South Africa as yet, but the drug was developed specially for patience like Barry who have no hope to recover from Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This drug has a high success rate in the UK and USA.

​This SGN-35 can be obtained under a managed named patience program (NPP) from Idis (the only Global distributor in England)

​Dr.  Yusuf Mayet and a SA Pharmaceutical Company is in touch with Idis and is arranging for the importation of the Drug and the approval from the Local Medical Authorities

​Dr. Yusuf Mayet will oversee Barry's Therapy with this Drug in Johannesburg.
