Michaela's Heart

Michaela's Heart

Personal message

My name is Michelle Moneron (44) and I live in Johannesburg South. I am raising funds for my daughter who needs a pacemaker.

Our daughter Michaela, an incredibly amazing, resilient young lady, went into cardiac arrest twice just before her 20th birthday in April. Thankfully, we were in the right place at the right time and an incredible team of doctors and nurses in Johannesburg, South Africa was able to revive her. 

She has since been treated as an outpatient at the Joburg hospital and we have been advised that she requires ablations.  Unfortunately, no provincial hospital in Gauteng seems to have the necessary facilities to perform this procedure at the moment.

Michaela, who is only 19, has been diagnosed with Ventricular Tachycardia (a life-threatening condition) and will need a couple of abrasions as well as a Pacemaker. She's at high risk of cardiac arrest. A ticking bomb needless to say.

As her parents, we are working hard, but the amount needed is not something any parent could budget for.

She's a fiery, bubbly spirit and we don't want the flame to burn out. She has just started her studies and is looking forward to studying.
Michaela's got her whole life ahead, please help our family save our daughter's life.

The amount raised is strictly for hospital cost and the cost of the surgery and doctors.

Breakdown of costs:

Cardiac technologist - R1300

Electro cardiologist - R5524.80

Anesthetist - R16500

Radiography - R2000

Hospital - R185000

Additional aftercare - unknown


Your donation will literally go towards saving Michaela's life.
