Ruben - Vacterl Syndrome Survivor

Ruben - Vacterl Syndrome Survivor

Personal message


I am Marlise Pieterse. 33 years old. Single Mommy to my very brave son Ruben who has Vacterl Syndrome. We stay in Brakpan, Gauteng.

My son was born with Vacterl Syndrome. He was born without an anus and he was born with a gap between his esophagus and his stomach and he had 2 holes in his heart. To date, he had 13 operations. Had a Tracheostomy and feeding tube.

He is 4 now. He gets sick more often and he has a lot of special medical needs because of his imperforated anus. I am struggling to pay the medical bills. I have been handed over by most of these accounts. I am a single mom and sole provider. I am struggling to even cover our basic needs. I can't even get to these extra accounts.

Medical costs:
Dr Westgarth-Taylor R1100
Dr N Hay R1200
Ampath R500
Vermaak R2020
Morningside ER Department R364
Morningside X Rays Department R600

To get these accounts paid up will help us so much. It is causing a lot of stress. I am a single mother and I can not even provide the daily essentials, so I really can't even pay these accounts. Most of the accounts already handed me over to collections.

Update 02/09/2019: We have increased the target amount to hopefully cover an MRI scan and bowel management treatment next week.

*Funds raised will go directly to the relevant medical practitioners*
