My name is Nella. 5 Years ago I went from being fully abled to quadriplegic in about 3 hours. I lost every thing, I was alone and depressed.
Then I met Thinus. He walked into my life and every thing became better. We are soulmates. He didn't notice the wheelchair. He carried me where my wheels couldn't go and made sure I lived. He washes me, dresses me, cooks, cleans, plays chauffeur. He's my phycologist, my friend, my rock and the love of my life. Now the unthinkable happened.
Thinus has a liver 3 times the size it should be with a number of tumours. The current diagnosis is cancer but they still need to do further tests. Currently he only has 50% use of his right lung as his liver is lying on top of it. He has been admitted to state hospital but they don't have what's needed to treat him, so we are forced to opt for private medical care.
Our medical aid doesn't cover it and we need to pay for every thing from our pockets. The accounts are already piling up and even with donations from friends and family coming in we can't keep up.
We also had to get a full time carer for me since Thinus is no longer able to do so. Every cent donated will go towards these two causes.Thank you for reading our story.
