An Insulin Pump for Linda

An Insulin Pump for Linda

Personal message

This is really odd for me as I normally raise funds for other people and not myself, Linda Schultz, 44 years old, from Malelane, Mpumalamga, South Africa.

I am hoping to be able to purchase a t:slim X2 insulin pump. I have been a diabetic since I was 10 years old. In the last few years, I have had untold complications, including having an emergency triple bypass just over 2 years ago. Although the doctors did what they could, my heart damage is terminal and is only controlled by medication at this stage. Next step will eventually be a new heart.

I was scheduled 2 weeks ago for rotator-cuff repair and made it as far as theater. After checking fully on my history the op was postponed pending a full cardiac evaluation. It has now been scheduled for the 30.11.2020.

I am hoping that using the pump with the Dexcom Sensors I am currently using, it will work as an external pancreas. Maintaining maximum sugar control. This will also help to reduce stress on my body/heart hopefully giving me many more years with my current heart. I still have so much left to do and am really confident as is my Dr that this will be life changing for me.
