Fundraising for Baby Ané

Personal message

Baby Ané was born at 27 weeks weighing only 980g. 

At a mere 5 days old, Ané contracted NEC, a life threatening disease. On day 25 while she was fighting a very hard battle to survive and connected to a ventilator we found out that she needed open heart surgery. 10 days post op, the Doctors confirmed that Ané also needed bowel surgery as there was severe damage to her bowels caused by the NEC. 

The operation was done and the damage was so bad that Ané was left with a semi stoma and her bowel was in bad shape. Because of the severe damage Ané's bowel is outside of her body as it wont fit back inside until healed. 

Ané is only only 68 days old and has had 6 blood transfusions and 2 major surgeries. We are currently doing repeated brain scans to calculate the damage caused by the early birth and infections.

She requires a second bowel operation within the next few weeks but to do this we need help with funding

Ané wears a special stoma bag for premie babies and the cost of these is R1 000 for a week’s stock. This is excluding all the creams and sprays to maintain this stoma. As she gains weight and grows we will need to purchase different sizes bags.

After her second surgery, we will wait around 6 months for the intestines to heal and then she will need another surgery.

The anaesthesiologist has given us an estimated quote of R24000 per operation. 

*Funds will go directly towards doctor’s bills and medical supplies*
