Personal message

Pieter, a 28 year old husband and father, broke his neck in a freak pool diving accident which left him paralyzed from the waist down. After 59 days in ICU and regaining the ability to breathe on his own, he has been transferred to Vincent Pallotti for further rehabilitation.

Watch the video here.

Pieter will most likely be discharged from rehab in the next 6 weeks depending on his progress. After discharge there will be many financial challenges that medical aid will not cover. Vernene, Pieter’s wife,was retrenched, shortly before their son was born so their family currently has no income. 

Read more about Pieter and family via the website, and follow his progress on Facebook.

The list below indicates what will be required prior to/on discharge from the facility.

1. Out patient rehabilitation and treatment after Pieter leaves the hospital.
2. Further treatment by a Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist.
3. Assistive devices and equipment:
• wheel chair
• hoist
• commode
• air mattress
• smart home devices
• computing and communicating devices.
4. Adaptations and alterations to the home, including renovating the bathroom, installing ramps and handles etc.
5. Adaptations and alterations to their current vehicle, alternatively acquiring a bigger vehicle to enable the family to travel together and to transport Pieter and his wheel chair.
6. Day to day medical supplies such as catheters and the like.
7. Travelling costs.
8. Caregiver to assist Pieter on a daily basis.
9. Day to day expenses.

Please help us get Pieter and Vernene all the financial help they need, while Pieter concentrates on walking again.
