Grandpa Needs Urgent Proper Healthcare

Grandpa Needs Urgent Proper Healthcare

Personal message

My name is Susan van Zyl and I am creating this campaign in hopes that it will be able to help my dear old father who is 77 years old and means the world to me.

He's suffering from heart failure, kidney and bladder infection, and bed sores from being bed bound.

Public hospitals keep saying they can't do anything for him.

He's struggling really hard and even has a hard time breathing.

We need cash so as to get him to see a private physician in hopes that they might be able to help him somehow; we also need to buy him blankets and pillows for extra comfort as he is incredibly skinny due to his poor health and since he's bed bound he gets painful bed sores and his frail old body gets really sore.

He lives in poverty, is a pensioner who receives only a tiny allowance every month on which to live off, and as such we desperately need to buy him real nutritious food, organise oxygen therapy to raise his oxygen blood saturation levels, buy him supplements like vitamins and minerals, and adult diapers since he barely has strength to get up out of bed, let alone go to the toilet when the need arises.

We want to make his last days on earth as comfortable as possible and show him how much we care for him.

Money is tight for everyone.

If we could do all of this for him out of our own pockets we would do so in a heartbeat, but alas we are also struggling.

We'd appreciate any support at all.

Thank you so much for reading, and to each and every one of you who decides to help out, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
