Emergency Medical Procedure

Personal message

My name is Desiree Heinlein, I am 39 years old. I am a single mother of 2, and I live in Kempton Park. 

I had experienced numerous medical problems and my medical examiner insisted that I go for a Gastroscopy to establish what the main problem was. After numerous tests, bloodwork, and examinations, my medical specialist found that I have Gall Stones and that it needs to be removed as soon as possible. 

I would like to raise the funds in time to enable myself to go for the operation as I am a single mother of two and have no medical aid available. I did approach the State Hospitals in my area, but they are unable to assist, due to the fact that the theatres are fully booked until 2020. Considering the fact that my operation is extremely urgent I am unable to wait until 2020.

I will need all funds as soon as possible, preferably, No later than the 31st of October 2019. Funds will be used as follows: 

  • Estimation for Hospital (Private) = R38,292.45
  • Estimation for Medical Surge>R13,762.20
  • Estimation for Anaesthesiologist = R3,226.83
  • Estimation for Physio Therapy (Two sessions) = R900 (R450 per session)
  • Estimation for Blood tests = R1,646.70
  • Estimation towards any extra hidden costs/petrol/assistance after surgery/alternative arrangements for children etc. = R7,000

I will be able to get the operation done as soon as possible and be pain-free.


*Funds raised will be paid directly to Dr TS Meyer*
