My sanity

Personal message

My name is JD Koekemoer, 52 from Midrand, Johannesburg.
Quick information
My son passed away 1421 days ago (as of this date), shortly afterwards I was retrenched and at my age finding employment has been extremely difficult. I literally ride everywhere that I need to go, and I wish that I could afford an E-Bike so that my wife could join me. But that is not what I am asking for help on. Yesterday while waiting for the robot to change, and in the Yellow lane, a vehicle decided to drive through me, and destroyed my back wheel. I cannot afford another one. And I know I will go nuts if I can't ride, as it's something my son and I did all the time, and I really miss that with him, but at least this way, I still feel he is with me.
At this point I know that I need to replace my rear wheel, I'm not too sure of any other damages as yet. I will be most grateful for any small donation you can make. For you it could be a box of cigarettes, for me, it's dealing with a broken heart.
Thank you.
JD

I am fundraising to replace the rear wheel of my bicycle that was damaged by an inconsiderate motorist that broke the law. My bike is my transport, and my sanity.
