Personal message

My wife to be -  Marlize Kriel has been diagnosed with a sickness called von Hippel-lindau which is tumour or cysts that forms on the brain or in spinal, kidney area.  She has got two on her brain, she already went for her first operation in April with was for a shunt at doctor Ernest van Graan.  We received R150 000 from family and we used our savings we had for our wedding that we booked for the 4th May 2019 to pay for the MRI scans  for this operation. 

We are on a 3 month's waiting period with medical aid after we applied at the start of March 2018. When our doctor wanted authorisation for the next operation for the tumour to be removed, they said we were declined because of not notifying them of scan that she went for in 2013 and the two GP visits she had for her migraine.  We didn't think about it at the moment and that there was a mistake from us.  So now she's booked at a Government hospital where Marlize will only be operated on if there's a bed open for her.

 We are visiting the doctor on the 23 August.  If we can raise R500 000 we can keep her under the Care of doctor Ernst van Graan at Kloof hospital in Pretoria where he was treating Marlize from the start. GOD BLESS if you can find a way to donate or just keep her in your prayers. Warm regards Adam.
