I am fundraising for Barend, a 14-year-old son of my sister's friend.
Barend du Preez is diagnosed with Classic Autism. He cannot speak fluently, write and cannot perform tasks like a child of his age. A few years back his mother started to read about stem cell therapy and it was only in overseas countries but now is also done in South Africa. This procedure will help Barend to have an improvement in functions that he is struggling with now. Any improvement will be a great advantage for him.
It will help Barend to improve his writing skills, speak fluently and have a normal teenage life.
The Procedure will cost R22 500.00. The institution that does the stem cell therapy charges R 17 500.00 but the parents will have to pay the anesthetic doctor separately. He previously charged R 5000.00.
Barend's parents took him for a stem cell therapy on the 16 August 2019 and got great results and the Dr advised that 3 to 4 procedures should be done. They are collecting for the second procedure now and any funds above the target will be used for the third procedure.
If there is money left at the end of the third procedure they are going to donate the money to Jannie Brink School Autism classes were Barend is currently attending.
*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant medical organisation/practitioner.*
