Help for Thora

Personal message

I am raising funds for my mother Edith Theodorus Wentzel (Thora) from Gauteng.

Hi all my mom was bleeding internally and needs to go for scopes to see what the cause is and she needs blood tests. She is 70 years old and has lost 20kg in a month, struggles to eat and walk and needs help doing everything.

Her Dr wants to add it on emergency. We did put her on medical aid but there is a 3 months general waiting period. I took her to the state hospital but due to covid 19 there is no theatre available and they can't give blood tests. We have tried everywhere and she just gets weaker day by day.

Please donate and share with friends and family to help my mum. 

Reaching my target will mean that I can save her life and health will allow Dr to admit her and do scopes and give her the blood tests that she needs. Also then when we know what the issue is we can get the right treatment plan and cover hospitalization in ICU.

Funds raised will be used to cover the following:
ICU deposit 120000
Theatre +- 20000
Dr per day 550
Blood +- 15000
Blood test 8000 for the duration in-hospital stay
Anesthetic Dr 4000
Uv drip medication not sure of the amount

BackaBuddy will administer funds raised directly to the relevant institution.
