I am fundraising for Gordon Cooke to walk again please. He was shot on a farm in Witbank 2010 burglary at home, defending his girlfriend and little girl at that time.
I would like to raise the funds next month if possible, surgery will take place and funds are needed. One Consultation with Doctors is R 25 000. The surgery for stem cell is still needed to be confirmed for the final amount. The X-rays and reports have been sent to the doctor to assess whether Gordon is a suitable candidate for stem cell therapy. If Gordon is not a suitable candidate, there is also a doctor in the U.S that can help, if not funds will be for him for a nurse/therapy/new wheelchair and equipment to make his life easier.
Funds raised will be used to cover the doctors' costs, surgery and stem cell procedures.
Recon & Application of Funds.
1. R30 000 the harvest of fat tissue and bone marrow for stem cell isolation.
2. Follow-up Treatments R17500 x 8 = R140 000. (It can be less).
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant practitioner/organisation.*
