Eckhardt's Knee Operation

Eckhardt's Knee Operation

Personal message

My husband, Eckhardt Kühn, recently injured his knee and tore the ligaments. He had to have surgery done to fix the damaged ligaments. We do have medical aid (on a hospital plan), but we have still had many extra payments that are not covered by medical aid. It is for these bills that I am campaigning to raise funds. 

Eckhardt loves being active and is an avid mountain biker, rock climber and mountaineer. Those who know him will know that he loves to be outside and enjoying the mountains. He has been seeing a Physio too, and would like to continue to see one so that his knee can heal well enough to begin doing all the activities he loves. Part of the money raised will also go towards Physiotherapy sessions.

Eckhardt is a big-hearted and very loving individual, those who know him will know that he doesn't hold back when it comes to helping others, and helping those whom he cares about. It is my attempt to help him now through this campaign, and I appeal to all his friends and family to help us raise funds just to cover these sudden extra medical expenses. We appreciate any amount. Thank you!

Funds raised will help cover:

Physio sessions post op (up to 6 months x twice a month) @R512 = R512 x 12 sessions R6144.00
