Wheelchair and prosthetic for Sarie

Wheelchair and prosthetic for Sarie

Personal message

I'm Sarie Ehrlich, I'm 63 and I live in Letsetele in Limpopo close to my daughter and my grandkids.

On Wednesday 14 August my left leg was amputated in my groin. I have been in and out of the hospital for the last 18 months trying to save my leg after my femur snapped in half due to cancer treatment crumbling my bones. Dr. Charl Olivier has tried his best to save my leg but after it kept going septic he decided to do a full hip, femur and knee replacement. Once again I left Zuid Afrikaanse Hospital hoping and praying for my leg to heal. Exactly a month after I got home my leg got a bad infection and went septic again.

It was then when I drove myself to ZAH once again and Dr. Charl decided it is best to amputate my leg before the infection spread further. Today almost 2 weeks after the amputation I am feeling positive again and I can start focusing on my life ahead with my grandchildren. I please need your help to buy a wheelchair for when I go home. I also need some extra funding to cover the costs of a prosthetic leg when my stump has healed. Furthermore, I have some medical bills that my medical aid didn't cover.

I will need a wheelchair by the time I leave the hospital to be mobile at home. I have received quotes between R10 000 and R13 500.

Dr. Charl said that most probably by January my stump would be healed to fit a prosthetic leg.

Funds will be used to buy a wheelchair and for covering the extra costs of a prosthetic leg and also to pay some outstanding medical bills.

Receiving these funds will give me the confidence to get up and carry on each day. It will give me a way to move around easily and be able to be independent.

Funds will go to my bank account where I will use it to buy a wheelchair and cover the costs for a prosthetic leg. I will also use these funds to help with some overdue medical bills.
