Suné was the youngest daughter of Charl and Melanie du Plessis from Ceres in the Western Cape. She was Grade 4 learner at Gericke Primary School.
On Tuesday, the 8th of March Suné came home from school and Melanie noticed that her eyes were a yellowish colour. She took her to the doctor and after a second visit on Wednesday morning, she was referred to Worcester Medi-Clinic for some tests. The suspicion was that she had hepatitis (an inflammation of the liver). On Thursday all the test results came back negative, but a sonar revealed that her liver and pancreas were swollen. Meanwhile, Suné’s condition was deteriorating at an alarming rate.
Thursday night Suné was transferred to the ICU and Friday morning Melanie and Charl were confronted with the news that their little girl needs a liver transplant to save her life. Within 48 hours their perfectly healthy child was critically ill.
On Saturday morning Melanie and Suné was flown by Air Ambulance to Johannesburg and the Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre.
Melanie was tested on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning it was confirmed that she is a suitable living donor for Suné. On Sunday afternoon the smaller left lobe of Melanie’s liver was transplanted into Suné’s little body.
Unfortunately after weeks of being on the ventilator Sune’s little body couldn’t take any more stress and her short life ended drastically.
As we all know, medical expenses can add up very quickly and the family has been hit harder than expected. Fri
Friends of the family have decided to have a Fundraising Golf Day at on the to raise as many funds as we can to assist the family. This T-shirt campaign compliments these efforts.
Your support and celebration of her life will be greatly appreciated.
