South African rock music star Angie Oeh (real name Angelique Greef) took to social media to share the news of her being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
The 24-year-old “Sex in Afrikaans” rapper admitted that she was afraid, moments after receiving her cancer diagnosis.
Oeh, who is from Pretoria, told followers: “Today I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, I’m afraid. Every time I get chance to think, I end up crying.
“How could this happen to me so fast without feeling or knowing anything.
“Right now I’m so sick, I need to ask someone to pass me the water bottle which is right next to me.
“I’m 24 and tomorrow I need to undergo a life-changing operation followed by six months of chemo.”
She appealed to friends and fans to help her raise R200k for an urgent operation.
“I don’t have the emotional bravery or money to do this now. If anyone can help me with R200k, please help.”
She shared an image of herself in a hospital bed along with her caption. The artist has started a BackaBuddy account to help raise funds.
