About Me:

@thejartender 30 Year old survivor of 4 brain surgeries in 2 years, 2 countries, 2 continents and a coma thanks to God and 3 neurosurgeons

No one knows the stigma I feel for having a brain tumour at the age 30. Aged 27 as a student I had no medical aid and was stuck in a private healthcare system and money was fading quicker than life, because I had "chosen" to fall ill before a career and medical aid.

Death (I hope not) and probably 30 years of what could have been a good quality life.

What happened to Alexander Flemming?Though I am not in SA I can't plan my trip soon enough but in an attempt to try save my life

I started watching cricket in 1992. The infamous semifinal between SA and Pakistan was my first.

Who is Stainslaw Burzynski? I don't know the man so I am reluctant to judge him, but what he does publicly I will judge

It's breast cancer month but brain cancer needs attention too...

A lot of what I have been through and continue to go through has left me obligated to share my life with a remote hope of assisting anyone with any similar diseases, deficits and or disorders.

I need to be dogmatic here regarding cancer and cannabis. It's not just because I have cancer, but because it does concern you.

Have we not learned from history that you can't just put belief behind something because the majority or rulers say so?

Unfortunately the original land owners of the Karoo are practically extinct and you probably won't hear from them here or on any social media.

Nothing I write here is intended in any disrespectful manor at any individual, race, gender or anything else, but is intended as a direct attack towards the unethical health system in South Africa.
