Caden's Tombstone

Caden's Tombstone

Personal message

Zola Benjamin age 37 is still trying to deal with the passing of her 11-year son Caden Benjamin. Just over 4 months since he is gone. His story may be familiar to some of you. Caden suffered from a Rare Incurable condition call Prader Willi Syndrome. Caden fought so hard to live, he didn’t want to give up and leave his single mom behind. Caden was his mom’s best friend.

Caden passed on the 15 November 2018, towards end of the year when company was close to shut down.   In January Zola had major se back not only emotionally but physically. She had to have 3 Surgeries and is still recovering. She never had time to care for herself while Caden was alive. Zola has not been able to find a job yet.  As of the 1st of April, she has started a half day training course to learn how to be a HIV counselor and First Aid.

She still must pay for a Tombstone for her son.   As we know a Tombstone that is very sturdy and won't collages as times goes by is not cheap.

She devoted her entire life to him. She had to take care of him 247. Many sleepless nights as Caden had to be monitored & be treated throughout the night.  Not able to afford Medical Aid made matters far worse. There was no suitable Government Palliative care for him. They had to travel 3 hours each way to go to the hospital. Caden needed care throughout the night and would often have extremely challenging situations.

This tragic loss has taken a huge toll on her Emotionally, Mentally and Physically.

As she is still recovering, she has the constant stress of how is going to be able to Pay for Caden Tombstone.

Let alone she is struggling to pay rent and her expenses make her suffering even worse. She will be earning a Mirer R2000 per months while she undergoes training. She is trying to find something else part time to supplement her income.  I am appealing to you to please contribute towards Caden’s Tombstone and help her to pay her rent. She can’t be put on the street.  She needs to get her feet on the ground. No amount is too small. God Bless. Gila Sacks email [email protected] 0832525000
