A mended heart for Zian

A mended heart for Zian

Personal message

My name is Chanelle Ferreira and I'm raising funds for little Zian. This baby boy came on my road a few months ago by accident but immediately made a home for him in my heart. Zian De Le Harpe will be turning 1 year old in March 2020 and is currently residing Hartbeespoort with his parents and an older sister. When I met Zian I asked his mother if I could hold him and immediately felt how fast his heart was beating but thought it was due to nervousness. 

On the same day, Zian got admitted to Steve Biko with a virus that he picked up during his immunizations. More recently Zian got admitted to Steve Biko with a bladder infection on the 30th of November and was only discharged again in the week of the 7th December. Zian went for a heart sonar and it was discovered that the aorta valve isn't closing like it should and leaves an open hole of 7mm and between his 2 heart chambers a hole of 5mm that needs to be repaired as soon as possible.

As explained above Zian has a hole of 7mm in his aorta valve and a hole of 5mm between 2 heart chambers that need to be repaired. Initially, Zian was scheduled for surgery to repair this on the 16th of March 2020 but after most recent tests it was recommended that Zian get surgery as soon as possible and they were able to make space for him in January. The De La Harpe family is not equipped with a medical fund and needs to rely on local hospitals and doctors. 

A private hospital was considered but the surgery without everything else included came down to an amount of R56000 and the family doesn't have the funds for this. Funds for the aftercare of this baby boy will also be of high importance.

Reaching my target will mean that Zian might be able to go for surgery at a private hospital and gets the help he need much sooner. It will also mean that the family doesn't have to rely on local hospitals and doctors with minimum space as the need for doctors and theatres are very high at local hospitals

The funds we raise for Zian will go for:
-Private doctors to get him admitted to the right private hospital
-His surgery and everything that comes with it
-Zian's aftercare
-Transport expenses of the parents

Funds raised will be paid into the beneficiary's bank account.
