Help Me Get Back on the Road Campaign

Hello everyone,

I hope that everyone is well during these challenging times. I'd like to share a personal story and ask for your support.

On May 27, 2023, I was involved in a motorcycle accident. Thankfully, by the grace of God, I suffered only minor injuries, but my motorcycle didn't fare as well. It's repairable, but the cost of repairs is substantial, and I'm unable to cover it financially.

In addition to this accident, I've been battling high blood pressure, which, due to my own negligence and a lack of self-care during a demanding work situation, led me down a path of alcohol bingeing. This, in turn, has affected my liver and kidneys, prompting me to quit alcohol and seek medical treatment. Without medical aid, I've been paying for the necessary medication and consultations out of pocket, further straining my financial situation.

I understand that these are challenging times for everyone, with South Africa facing its own set of issues, from load shedding to financial burdens, and the heart-wrenching news of friends and family battling cancer and experiencing loss.

I want to assure you that I am on the right path now, committed to maintaining my sobriety and diligently following my treatment plan. However, the financial burden from these circumstances has become overwhelming.

I have lodged a complaint with the Ombudsman, and I am eagerly awaiting a response. If, by any chance, I do win the case, I am fully committed to returning whatever money has been generously given to me. Your support will help me bridge this challenging period.

One crucial point to mention is that the motorcycle I'm seeking assistance for is not just a luxury item; it's the only other vehicle I have. My partner, Kelsey, relies on our car for work and running errands, so having a functional motorcycle is essential for both of us.

I'm reaching out to you, my friends, family, and community, with humility and sincerity, asking for your assistance in raising funds to cover the motorcycle repairs. Your support will not only help me get back on my feet but also provide peace of mind and stability during a time of uncertainty.

If you can contribute financially, no matter how small or large, it will make a meaningful difference. Additionally, please share this campaign with your network, as spreading the word is equally valuable.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for considering supporting me during this challenging journey. Your kindness and generosity mean the world to me.

Please know that i am always available to assist in any manner possible to those in need although it cant be financially.

With thanks
