I am a friend of a very special person. I took the opportunity to advocate for her as I see how she is struggling. She tried running her own fund in desperation at a time to help herself and others together but her struggle and battle thus far as been one of very little to none. Lawyers letters, unpaid medical bills and court cases are piling up all because she fell ill and could not pay her bills in time and cover the treatment and hospital bills. I noticed how strong and patient and calm she is in everything even when she is not feeling well.
With her permission I took over the fund by asking for assistance and help because it was not doing too well and she needs help.
This came about when i saw her dedication on facebook to attend to the needs of her client and unfortunately she got stuck with a flat tyre and flat battery in Tafelsig/Eastridge but still managed to get the work done.
Jillaine is a passionate, determined person always putting the needs of others before her, read her recommendations on her facebook page from patients that was in care over the years. It is really sad to see strong passionate people trying to help others through caring and when they fall ill and struggle, its hard to find there way back again.
After starting a new post as a midwife she fell ill in May 2018 with recurrent suspicious colds and flu after nursing a patient with high temperatures as she explained. She never blamed or regreted her actions in anyway and her main focus was to get her patient well before she went off duty. Her condition worsened as the months went by. She remained Faithful in her post at Melomed Hospital striving to remain strong during shifts even though she suffered each day physically, emotionally and spiritually.
In November 2018 she started getting really sick and lost lots of weight and became very lethargic with frequent chest pains and shortness of breath.
Still remaining faithhful in her work at Melomed she continued till the diagnosis became multiple and after seeing her Gp various times to treat a flu that did not get better she was questioned for being sick all the time.
She was admitted to a government institution for 5 days in the emergency unit.Treated for pulmonary embolism,pneumonia,anxiety,chest pain, tachycardia, high blood pressure and unexplained fever.
She was discharged and the final conclusion was upper respiratory tract infection and no cause was found after treatment. After discharge from hospital 2 days later she had a massive chest pain that knocked her out.
Desperate for help her family seeked private care and was immediately admitted in the Cardiac ICU.
Due to lack of finances and medical aid not covering she was discharged from hospital after not having the cash money available to continue care after 1 day and night in ICU, further procedures and test could not continue due to lack of finances.
Jillaine gave up on the health care system and was ready to manage whatever was handed to her in faith. Due to illness and recovering she could not cover the cost of hospital bills, Drs accounts, pathology accounts and monthly expenditures to maintain her household. Again putting others first she needed to work and start paying her debts to reduce the financial arrears over the last 6 months which is hard work for anybody trying to manage financial distress after becoming ill and still try to support a family. She had to resign because she had no other option, no sick leave, no work no pay. She was depending on the little savings in her pension fund to at least cover the arrears but that was not enough.
Please assist Jillaine by helping her with Medical cost and arrears that accumalated. She is hard working full of life and not afraid to help. She started a company called JLK Care with the purpose of providing private care to everybody needing the care at home but cannot afford the cost. Sadly she is held back by the crisis of financial distress and trying to recover from whatever got her ill. She still needs to undergo procedures and investigations that was scheduled before she was told to pay upfront. She could not and still cannot afford to pay the accounts and any future care. She is battling and has been trying her best to recover on her own.
She tried self healing techniques and managed to treat her own illness with natural methods thus far that seems to help. She said she had to do this to stay strong and comfortable to build a company that she believes will make a diffetence to many and also she wants to prevent others from going through the pain and suffering she did. She is a very passionate dedicated Midwife and is very good at what she does.
Please with a sincere plea, help her she is a good person and has alot to offer and always smiling.
