My name is Chelesani and I am Lwanele's mom. We live in Rosettenville, Johannesburg South. Lwanele is a very special boy who was born with multiple birth defects. He turned 2 on the 1st of June 2019 and has a big brother (7) who adores him so much. We have a website with Lwanele's diagnosis if you would like more information.

We are raising funds to help cover Lwanele's medical expenses.

1. We owe money to Sandton Mediclinic and this bill is at the moment (July 2019) sitting at R5 054.80. 
2. We owe R 908.30 to his paediatric pulmonologist and are yet to go for more consults as he needs to be seen by his primary care doctor at least once every month.
3. He uses a very long list of medication daily (13 in total) and the medical aid pays for only 4 of those meds. So his monthly medication deficit is at about R4 000 per month.

To know more about this amazing boy, we have a website with his history, diagnosis, daily needs and how he has developed thus far. Quite frankly, we are amazed at how far he has come and what he can do.   
Lwanele’s daily regimen involves the following:
1. Multi-drug nebulisation with antibiotics and bronchodilators, oral antibiotic, probiotic, anti-seizure meds, anti-reflux meds, immune boosters and three supplements (iron, Vit D and Vit B6);
2. Oxygen support due to chronic lung disease, tracheomalacia and bronchiectasis;
3. Daily specialised nursing care;
4. Colostomy bags and feeding tubes (as he eats only through a PEG and uses a colostomy bag which allows his body waste out through an opening on the abdominal wall).

On a regular basis he receives Speech Therapy (courtesy of The Marian Rose Foundation), Neuro-physiotherapy as well as Chest Therapy (which the medical aid has recently approved 1 session for every month).
We also wish him to get Occupational Therapy when funding allows as he has been diagnosed with a Sensory Processing Disorder.
No amount is too small, every little bit will make a difference in contributing to the betterment of the boy's future


*Funds raised by this campaign will be administered by BackaBuddy NPC and transferred directly to the relevant healthcare providers*
