Personal message

My name is Janet Marais (35) and I am trying to raise funds for my grandmother, Dina Marais (84). 

My grandmother fell on the 27th and broke her hip badly and she urgently needs hip replacement surgery for her to be able to walk again.

She was admitted to a state hospital when she fell as we didn't have R100 000 to pay for her admission to a private hospital and we thought it will be okay but when we got there we were shocked. She has to wait 3 weeks before they are going to operate and the state of the hospital and the conditions are terrifing. My grandmother is getting weaker by the day. We urgently need to get my grandmother into a private hospital so that she can get the surgery she despirately needs and we need any financial help we can get. 

Breakdown of costs:
R100 000 for hospital fees
R150 000 for doctor's and surgical fees

Our grandmother is a wonderful person with the biggest heart full of love. She is the most amazing woman that has survived so much heartache in her life but never gave up and we adore and admire her. I can't imagine my life without her. We despirately just want to help her. It will be her 85th birthday on the 13th of September and we hope she will be fully recoved by then to enjoy another milestone in her life.

Thank you for taking the time to read her story.
