Sleep Apnea Treatment Campaign

Hello, my name is Karina and I'm reaching out with a humble request for your support.

Like many of us, sleep is my refuge – a time to rest, recharge, and rejuvenate. However, my relationship with sleep has been a turbulent one due to a condition known as Sleep Apnea. This condition obstructs my breathing repeatedly while I sleep, resulting in reduced oxygen flow to my brain and causing me to wake up throughout the night. The perpetual cycles of interrupted sleep adversely affect my daily life, impacting my work, relationships, and mental well-being.

In my pursuit of restful nights, I discovered that a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine can be my ally in ensuring steady breathing while I sleep. Not only does this machine have the potential to drastically improve my quality of life, but it also safeguards me against the severe health risks associated with untreated Sleep Apnea, such as heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.

However, a new obstacle has presented itself: the financial burden of acquiring this life-changing device. The cost of the CPAP machine and the necessary battery backup to counteract frequent load-shedding is R23 999, a sum that is presently out of my financial reach.

This is where I extend my hand, hoping for your kindness and generosity to assist me in raising funds to purchase the CPAP machine and battery. Your contribution, big or small, will be a monumental step towards improving my health, enhancing my quality of life, and ensuring that every night I can close my eyes with the assurance of a safe and sound sleep.

Why This Matters:

  • Health and Well-being: Attaining consistent, uninterrupted sleep is crucial for my physical health and psychological well-being, mitigating the risks of severe health complications.

  • Productivity and Relationships: With improved sleep, my daily productivity and the quality of my relationships stand to gain significantly, as I will be able to engage with life and my loved ones more actively and attentively.

  • Navigating Load-shedding: Living in an area plagued by power outages, the battery backup is vital to ensuring that my CPAP machine can provide continuous support throughout the night, even during load-shedding.

Your Impact:

Every donation brings me a step closer to acquiring the CPAP machine and leads me towards nights of safe, uninterrupted sleep. No contribution is too small, and every bit is immensely appreciated.

In return for your generosity, I commit to updating all supporters with the progress of this fundraiser and my subsequent journey towards better sleep and health.
