Care For Wessie

Personal message

On the 24th of Sept dad's life was drastically changed as a freak accident occured. No indication of feeling ill. Mom found dad laying face down. she managed to turn him over he was all blue around the mouth, she managed to wake him and kept telling him not to sleep the ambulance is on route. It was at that time he told her he cannot feel his arms and legs.

After scans and Xrays they established he had broken his neck and is paralyzed. He regained partial movement in his arms and has an amazing fighting spirit, we almost lost him 4 times in just 1 month and every time God spared him for us. He is now in a rehab facility, thereafter they will move to East London from Pe to be closer to the family.

Even though the medical aid has been amazing there are also things that they do not cover and will need to be paid for by us, therefore, we have decided to start the care for Wessie fund. We will need to employ and train someone to look after dad once he is discharged. With being dismissed from work due to the accident it is just my mother generating an income from which firstly the medical aid needs to be paid-( without it the predicament would have been so much worse, )rental, living expenses and all the daily things he needs which add up so quickly and of course trying to keep the medical expenses not covered by the medical aid in line.
