Support for Leandra and family Campaign
To many of us, Leandra is a family member, close friend, Herbalife couch, or the kind of angel with her wings on the inside.She is an incredible wife, and mother of two young kids (8 & 7).
Not only does she drive her kids around for school and all of their extramural activities, but she also manages a flourishing business as a Herbalife distributor.
On Sunday(22 October 2023), she started losing feeling in her hands and feet, while experiencing severe pain in her back and neck - to the extent that she struggled to talk and swallow. After being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Leandra was given strong pain medication and sedatives to stabilise her and manage the pain as much as possible.
On Monday(23 October 2023), Leandra stopped breathing by herself, necessitating that she be placed on a ventilator. Her blood pressure readings were extremely high, which meant that the doctors could not take her out of sedation. Currently, the doctor strongly suspects that she has Guillain–Barré Syndrome (GBS), and has started the appropriate treatments - which includes dialysis.
However, they can't make a final diagnosis while she is on a ventilator. Furthermore, she cannot stay on the ventilator for longer than is absolutely necessary due to the increased risk of associated infection.
Leandra is still very critical, but we believe there will be full recovery because we serve a God of healing. We know there are people around the world praying for her, and we deeply appreciate all the prayers we can get.
Leandra is the kind of person who will do anything to help others. We know it's hard for the family to ask for help, because the kind of people who are always helping others often don't know how to accept it in return. Therefore, through this fundraiser, we want to show the family how much they mean to us around them, as many people have asked how they can help the family.
Therefore, this account was created to give everyone who cares about her or wants to help a chance to help the family (financially).
The funds will be used for anything Leandra or her family may need: from medical bills, special care and/or rehabilitation (if needed once released from hospital), food expenses, after-school child care to laundry services.
Psalm 46 verse 1 and 11
(1) The Lord is my refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way … (11) The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
Jy "inspire" ons almal om ñ beter mens te wees. Jy het nog nooit gaan lê nie. Mag mense hul harte oop maak en julle dra deur die tyd. Finansies is die laaste ding waaroor mens wil stres in die proses van recovery.
Dear Leandra, I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery 🙏 💐
Baie sterkte vrou. Bid vir spoedige herstel!
