Silla Gordon suffers from Meniere's disease, which is a disorder of the inner ear that causes episodes in which you feel as if you're spinning (vertigo), and you have fluctuating hearing loss with a progressive, ultimately permanent loss of hearing, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear. It results in extreme nausea and vomiting and loss of the body's functions. It usually starts in one ear, but later may involve both. Hearing loss may become permanent.
Silla has been battling with this disease for the past 2 years, and it has become increasingly hard for her to manage on a day to day basis. She has attacks, where she looses control of her whole body's functions and, as a result, she takes days to recover from an attack. The attacks happen so suddenly, that when they do happen, they hit her hard. She has to control what she can and can't eat or drink, and small things (ie. salt, the weather, stress, etc.) can set it off.
Her attacks are increasing and as a result, she now has 1 to 2 attacks every 2 weeks.
She has an opportunity to have a procedure which will help her, and, ultimately, improve her way of life, so that she doesn't have to stress about having any more attacks.
We need to raise R7500 in order for her so see a specialist and have the procedure done.
