Jacques De Vos

Personal message

Jacques is a 33 year old guy was diagnosed with a rare illness in 2008 that resulted in him having extensive blood clots and compromised circulation.  At first, his body could manage to compensate.  However, with time, he deteriorated.  He now struggles to cope with even minor activities of daily living and has lost most of his independence.  He has reached a point where he struggles to stand and walk more than 30m.  When he pushes his body too far, he has intense pain.  Even when he does not move much he now suffers relentless pain at times.  He has to always wear very uncomfortable compression socks when he is upright in order to assist blood flow.  If he doesn’t, it would lead to more damage to his legs.  However, the socks are many times so uncomfortable or even painful that he just needs to take them off, but is then even less able to do many things normal people do.  He is concerned about the future and what things might be like, since the trajectory of his illness is not looking good at all. 

He has had two operations in South Africa to try and alleviate his condition.  Both were unsuccessful.  The last operation was done by a very specialised surgeon from London who is convinced that if Jacques goes to their specialised theatre in London, the surgeon and his team would be able to fix the problem.  This could literally get Jacques back on his feet and help him live a normal life again. 

A determining factor is the cost of going to have the procedure done in London.  If you could assist in contributing even just a small amount, Jacques would certainly be eternally grateful.  His surgery is scheduled for as soon as COVID-19 cases decrease again after London’s 2nd wave.
