Hip replacement 62344 Campaign
I'm Lindzay Theron, and I'm reaching out for my father, Flip Theron, who is in urgent need of a hip replacement. At 65 years old, he resides in Despatch, Eastern Cape. My father's condition necessitates a hip replacement due to a broken hip caused by years of friction, resulting in excruciating pain. We've sought assistance from multiple state hospitals due to his lack of medical insurance. However, we've learned that, in our region, these hospitals do not have the financial means to perform the operation.
My father endures constant pain throughout each day, which severely hampers his ability to carry out even the most basic tasks, including work, bathing, and getting dressed. His inability to move his hip normally, coupled with the weight bearing on it, is exacerbating the situation.
The total cost of the operation ranges from R170,000 to R200,000. This amount includes a 5-day hospital stay, an anesthetist, and the necessary post-operation medications. Additionally, post-operative check-ups are required.
We are humbly seeking your assistance to help my father regain his mobility and alleviate his unrelenting pain. Any contribution, no matter the size, will bring us one step closer to the funds needed for his hip replacement surgery.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated, and it will make a significant impact on my father's life.
Thank you for your support.
