Jade Gibson Battle for Survival

Jade Gibson Battle for Survival

Personal message

We are Alison and Tony Gibson, Jade Gibson’s parents.
Jade being a special needs child requires medical treatment for various critical conditions, and this is why we are appealing to you all to help with her medical treatments.

Jade Gibson (15 years) is our special needs daughter. Jade needs an operation to straighten and fuse her back as she suffers from Scoliosis that it now critical and past an 85 degree bend. She also has problems with her feet where they bend inwards and both these issues cause her considerable pain. The scoliosis is putting pressure on her lungs & heart and is now at a 43% pressure on her heart, if it reaches 60% the doctors will no longer operate and she will be left to suffocate overtime before she dies.

The Medical aid we were on refused to pay for her operation and subsequently kicked us off and now is demanding we pay them back for the hospital fees we incurred for the last year we were on the plan. We are contesting this with the legal counsel but this is not what we are raising funds for. Our main and first priority is to get Jade Gibson’s scoliosis problem fixed as best we can so she can live with less pain and survive.

If you had to meet Jade she is the most lovable and grateful little girl you will ever meet. She creeps into your heart even though your not aware that she is. Please donate and open your hearts and help Jade survive this battle.

We require this operation to be carried out as soon as possible. It was scheduled for March then April and May and postponed due to the medical aid not authorising the treatment on three occasions.

We need hospital, surgery, and recovery treatment fees to be covered.  In addition to this, her follow up treatments and medication after the operation.

Jade will be able to live and have less pain in her little life once she has this operation. So far her short life has been very hard when it comes to her medical conditions. But she very rarely ever complains about her problems.

She is amazingly strong and a survivor. Her neurologist said when she was six years old if we wanted a miracle, the fact she can talk her 3 word sentences and can walk is the miracle that should never have been.

*The funds raised will be transferred directly to the medical service providers that will be doing the treatments for Jade.*
