Let me breathe

Personal message

So I have been fighting.

Fighting almost 11 years for health. It’s not easy.

I’ve been told 3 times in 11 years I wouldn’t make it longer than a couple of months.
I was misdiagnosed twice & been on certain treatments for these including chemo!
I’ve had a bilateral lung transplant. Waiting 18months for ‘the call’.
I’ve lost good people fighting the same fight.
I’ve spent more time in hospitals than had holidays.
I've been on oxygen and now probably on my way back.
I’ve been diagnosed with Chronic rejection.

I’ve been doing Extra Corpreal Photopheresis (ECP) treatments for the past 5 months which my medical aid partially paid. 12/24 sessions. Now my medical aid won't pay the remainder of the treatments (Even though my lung functions stopped dropping during the treatments).

My medical aid costs are going up to R5,950.00 a month. Then co-payments on Chronic medication, self payment gaps, etc.

I'm not working so have no means of income. I even tried part time but my body literally gave in & I ended up in casualties.

Breathing is becoming harder.

I am exhausted.
I am pleading for help.

I need to raise funds in order to do the ECP treatments. I will have to start from the beginning as the cycle has been broken. The treatments target certain cells in the blood that causes the rejection. The cycle works with targeting these cells everytime it regenerates.

One treatment costs R25,000.00($1,826.15 give or take) & I need to do a minimum of 24.
