Double lung transplant Campaign


I am the mother of Mrs. Chantalle Buckle, known as Ricky. Our family is urgently seeking funds for a critical cause – a double lung transplant for my daughter.
Chantalle received a diagnosis in 2014, marked by her first lung biopsy, followed by another in 2016. For the past eight years, she has been reliant on oxygen, with her levels dropping to a concerning 74%. Chantalle is grappling with fibrotic Non-specific Interstitial Pneumonitis (F-NSIP), a condition further complicated by severe Hypoxaemic Respiratory failure and secondary Pulmonary Hypertension.
Despite undergoing initial treatments with high-dose Corticosteroids & Prifenidone and Mycophenolate, Chantalle's condition persists. Her next and final hope is a double lung transplant, scheduled for the upcoming months. This procedure represents the last resort, as all systemic therapies have proven ineffective.
Our immediate challenge is the financial burden associated with the extensive tests Chantalle needs. To proceed with the transplant, she must upgrade to the highest medical aid plan (Boncomprehensive), which costs R9853 per month – a cost we currently cannot afford.
Living in Bethal, Mpumalanga, Chantalle travels 2 hours and 30 minutes to Millpark Hospital in Johannesburg for essential medical examinations, incurring around R350,000 in expenses.
The additional travel costs for fuel and tollgates amount to R1000 each time. Furthermore, Chantalle requires funding for Ozempic injections, a crucial 4-month treatment costing R10,000. Unfortunately, our medical aid does not cover this expense, essential for her weight loss before the procedure, as she is too weak to engage in any form of exercise.
Chantalle is not just a patient; she is also a devoted mother to her 11-year-old son who needs her.
This journey is life-changing for Chantalle and our entire family. Your support will make a significant difference in affording her a second chance at life, enabling her to breathe freely once again.
Please consider contributing to this cause by clicking on the link below. We welcome and appreciate all donors who are covering the platform fee, because more of your donations will go to this campaign.
Thank you.
