A Father's Desparate Cry For A Second Chance At Life


The Ultimate Family Man.

A 39 year old North West resident, Unathi Mtengwane, is a model father and husband and the ultimate family man. In March 2017,he received devastating news of his life threatening diagnosis, T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and urgently requires a blood stem cell transplant.

Unathi has been on maintenance treatment since going into remission in 2017 but in July 2020 learned that he would need to undergo a life saving blood stem cell transplant as soon as possible.

Sadly, no family match has been found and so Unathi is at the mercy of the South African community in order to find an unrelated donor match.

If you feel like being a donor you can request a swab kit as a blood stem cell donor here: 💌

"Cancer is not specific to any color or race, it can affect anyone. As a community, we need to educate ourselves and not wait for ourselves or someone close to us to be affected. We nned to think about our families and larger community and not wait to seek medical attention - early diagnosis is key. Your donation is important, it saves lives", says Unathi.
