Help Carel fight GBS Campaign

My name is Annetjie Cornelissen, and on December 12th, 2023, my husband Carel Cornelissen's health took a sudden turn for the worse.

He went from being a fit, active man to being reliant on a ventilator and other medical equipment in the ICU due to Guillain Barre Syndrome. Over the past eight weeks, he has faced numerous complications, including collapsed lungs and infections, nearly losing his life multiple times.

Currently, Carel remains in the ICU, unable to move or speak due to the ventilator. However, he has shown signs of communication through blinking and slight movements. Despite the challenges, he maintains a strong fighting spirit.

For the past 32 years, Carel has been the sole breadwinner, and without medical aid, the expenses for his treatment at the state hospital are accumulating. As I have no income, I am uncertain how to settle these bills.

Any donations toward his medical expenses would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Carel and Family, I don't have much to give being a single mom myself but I hope this will help. I wish you a speedy recovery and we are praying for you! Regards, Charleen, Chloe & Kyle Lessing.
