We live in Bloemfontein, South Africa. I am fundraising for my baby, Blayne's, medical expenses.
Blayne was born at 28 weeks,747 grams and had a rough journey. He is currently on 24 hours oxygen due to chronic lung disease for being intubated(machine to help him breath) for too long. He has been diagnosed with chronic lung desease and Pulmonary Hypertension.He has a lot of medical expenses. He is admitted about once a month in hospital for breathing issues or infection. He needs to see a Neuro Physio once a week to assist with development as his development is far behind.
We need to go up to Johannesburg frequently to see a Pediatric Pulmonologist. Every admission the medical aid short paid his doctor, blood test and some scans and it all is adding up to a huge burden. Traveling to Johannesburg is costing a lot of money as we need to pay diesel, accommodation and food.
The hospital in Johannesburg has got a 35% co-payment as it is not a hospital for my medical aid. I had to resign my job to look after our baby and it is only my husband that had an income now.
Funds raised will be used to pay his doctor all the shortfalls, to pay the shortfalls on all the scans and tests, to pay the hospital in Johannesburg the shortfall on the hospital account and all the doctors and therapist shortfall accounts. We also need funds for accommodation and diesel to travel to Johannesburg.
By receiving funds, this will take off a huge burden and it will assist to make sure Blayne can see his Neuro physio week, see his Pediatrician, to see all the doctors and therapist in Johannesburg, He is seeing Pediatric Pulmonologist, Neurologist, Cardiologist, Speech therapist, Physio.
