Help Us Give Little Aimee The Best Chance Of A Normal Life

In January 2021 our twins were born at 32 weeks with TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome) and TAPS (Twin Anemia Polycythemia Sequence), 

TAPS is a rare condition that occurs when there are unequal blood counts between the twins in the womb. Emily Morgan was our Recipient twin and AimeeMileah was our Donor twin.

Aimee was in NCIU for 72 days, had three blood transfusions, Sepsis, Gastroesophageal relaxation disease, and Bronchopulmonary dysplasia. After she was discharged we did hearing and eye tests as she was on oxygen for a long time. Her eyes were fine but she is bilaterally deaf.

At 7 months we took her to a pediatric neurologist as she was not reaching her milestones as her twin sister. It was confirmed that she had Cerebral Palsy. In the months that followed we have sessions twice a month with a Speech Therapist, as she wears hearing devices to prepare her for the Cochlear implants in 2022 and 2023.

We have weekly sessions with the Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist and every second to the third month we see her Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist. The specialist will do the cochlear implants as well as the Paediatric Neurologist that looks after the Cerebral Palsy and is helping us to get her to sit and walk.

December 2021 we also saw an Orthotist that confirmed that she has a severe case of Deformational Plagiocephaly and needs a Cranial Helmet. She received the Cranial Helmet at the beginning of January 2022 and is wearing it 23 hours a day.

All these tests and doctors and therapy cost us a lot of money. Our Medical Aid does not cover everything like for example the Cranial Helmet which we need to get her head and ears aligned to do the cochlear implants.

We need to raise funds to give our daughter the best chance of a normal life and pay all her medical expenses.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I would deeply appreciate you sharing this campaign with your network to help Aimee receive the help she requires. Please also consider pledging a monthly donation to enable me to pay for Aimee's medical bills for the next 12 months.
