My name is Sanet Jordaan. My daughter, Elizabeth was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress (SMARD) when she was 6 months old. We were told by the doctor's that she needed to have a breathing tube (tracheostomy) and that she will need a machine to help her breathe (Home ventilator) for the rest of her life. They also told me that she would need special braces for her feet to keep them in the right position and body brace to help her spine grow straight. Because the braces keep her posture correct, it also helps to prevent pain in her legs and lower back. 

 You can only imagine how overwhelming all of this was as a mother and the fear that your child depends on a ventilator for her to breathe. We live on a farm in Robertson. It's an hour away from the nearest hospital. What if the home ventilator stops working or gives problems? What do I do? How do I help my child to breathe until I can get her to the nearest doctor or hospital?

 Elizabeth is now 11 years old. She is a vibrant, talkative and loving child who is willing to learn and experience all life has to offer despite her physical limitations. She still has the  breathing tube and is totally dependent on the home ventilator breathe. My fears as a mother are still there. What if the ventilator stops working, gives problems. Her backup ventilator is broken and needs to be replaced. We have had problems with her current ventilator and have been able to sort it out before it was an emergency situation.  

 Elizabeth needs a backup ventilator. We cannot do without one, especially with our current "loadshedding situation" in South Africa.

 We as a family appeal to you from the bottom of our hearts to please, kindly help us raise funds for a backup ventilator.
