My name is Bianca Werner, I'm 32 years old and live in Badplaas. We are fundraising for Santie Friedrich, she is 56 years old and also live in Badplaas . I got to know her when I moved to Badplaas in 2013. She owns our local pub and grill. She is the sole breadwinners and looks after her adopted son who is 13 years old.
We aim to collect R180 000.00. Santie has advanced osteoarthritis in her right hip and requires an urgent hip replacement to improve her quality of life. We are hoping to raise the funds by December 2019. The funds will be used to cover the surgical procedure and the prosthesis used in the surgery.
The hip replacement will greatly improve her quality of life. In addition, it will improve her ability to actively spend child with her son. Furthermore, it will allow her to walk without the assistance of a walking aid.
Funds will go into a dedicated bank account administered by Carina Potgieter. The money raised will be paid towards the medical expenses.
