A Pacemaker for Wanda

A Pacemaker for Wanda

Personal message

Wanda Botha is a 57-year-old wife, mother and grandmother living in Paarl, Western Cape.

I am a close family friend of the Botha's - pretty much part of the family and am asking (no begging) for your help.

Wanda suffered Rheumatism as a child which left her with weakened heart valves. Over the years Wanda has undergone several open-heart surgeries to replace valves and since 1986 she has been dependent on a Pacemaker. She is in need of yet another valve replacement and a new pacemaker but has been advised against undergoing open heart surgery as it is too risky for her

Her Cardio team can replace the valve and insert a new pacemaker to the outer wall of her heart (current one is internally seated in the heart) but by way of a new less invasive proceedure  (through her femaral artery instead of open heart surgery).

The issue is : Her medical aid is not prepared to cover the costs of these two new prothesis.  We need to raise the money to cover these costs and need your help

Wanda has to have the procedure within the next 6 months.  Her health is deteriorating daily.  


Funds raised will be used to cover:

R100 000 for the Pacemaker
R300 000 for the Tricuspus Valve (any surplus funds will go towards this)

Quite frankly it will save her life and improve the quality of it at the same time.

The funds raised will go toward the cost of the Valve and Pacemaker.

Please follow Wanda's progress here
