Reaching out for a single mom's medical expenses

Reaching out for a single mom's medical expenses

Personal message

Hi everyone, whilst it’s been a tough year for most of us, my beautiful friend, Chris, has had it harder than most. She lost her job and consequently medical aid in April just after being diagnosed with a mass growing behind her bladder.  Her pain has increased to a debilitating level, and she now medicates heavily to control it.  She is not in any state to gain full time employment which she desperately needs to support herself and her son, being the sole breadwinner and a single mom.

We've tried the government hospital route but it will take years to get the surgery she requires in a system that is overloaded and underfunded, time she does not have.  So we have turned back to private healthcare which is of course costly. The procedure that she needs is Laparoscopy Oopherectomy Laparascopy Lysis of adhesions.

Life has brought most of us to our knees at some point, (in her case its coming in waves this year. From loss of employment, to health, to her car breaking down repeatedly, washing machine & fridge not working… the list goes on) 

And when you can't fight yourself, someone has to step up to fight for you which I'm hoping with your help to do for her. Remember that Sunday school song "whatsoever you do to least of my brother, that you do unto me"?  I'm called to help her, I simply can’t turn away as I bear daily witness to her struggle, so whilst a little overwhelming. I’m stepping anyway ...and trusting with help we can help her heal in body & spirit.
