Kallie’s Story

Kallie is a devoted family man and a dedicated safety officer at Waterval Smelter, he has always been full of energy and passion. He shares his life with his loving wife, Sunet, and their two boys, JJ and Darius, whom he proudly supports in their sporting endeavours, particularly rugby. He cherished his family and valued the close bonds he shared with his colleagues.

In June 2022, Kallie’s life took an unexpected turn when he was diagnosed with a brain cyst. He underwent multiple surgeries, faced complications, and spent nearly a year in the hospital. The journey was incredibly challenging for him and his family, but their resilience has been inspiring.

Today, Kallie relies on his family for daily care and support. He’s bedridden, uses a PEG tube for nutrition, and depends on diapers for personal care. Despite these challenges, he has shown remarkable progress in recent months.

Medical professionals remain uncertain about Kallie’s recovery trajectory. While the cyst is no longer active, its impact on Kallie’s life remains significant. The doctors have provided varying scenarios, from full recovery to remaining in his current state.

While the future remains uncertain, your support will help Kallie and his family focus on providing him with the best care and quality family time. The goal is to improve his well-being and offer him a chance at a brighter future.
