Desperately Seeking Assistance:

We have been advised to start this crowd-funding page by many friends to assist us with the costs in getting my dear Mom back in action and living her life again after almost 16 months of crippling pain due to a severely injured hip.

THE STORY:
My dear Mother, Linda, is in dire need of a hip-operation. She is in excruciating pain and has been for a long time now.
As she is a pensioner has no medical aid, she was entered on a Government hospital waiting-list in April 2017... After 16 months of waiting, the scheduled operation was cancelled 24 hours before the date. No reason was given.

We were then referred to the Spier Foundation NGO that was able to help for a R30k contribution and she was swiftly put on another list... five weeks later she was told it couldn't happen again as the NGO had collapsed.

She lost her job due to her immobility and has now been put back on the waiting list with the possibility of an operation in July 2019! 

THE SOLUTION: 
We have now secured a Doctor, Dr Dower who is able and willing to assist & able to do it this year!

We are needing to raise R80 000. 
It will cover:
* Prosthesis
* Theatre costs 
* 3-day in-hospital recovery
* Surgeon account
* Anaesthetist account
* Radiology 
* Pathology 
* Physiotherapy while in hospital
* Consultations by the physician
* Blood Transfusion Services
