Help Page With Her Recovery from Myelitis CampaignIn August/September 2023, Page was admitted into hospital for Transverse Myelitis, a rare neurological condition caused by an infection and inflammation of the spine.
While Page was incredibly lucky to have caught it early (Myelitis can cause paralysis and other major complications), she is still experiencing many symptoms as a result of this ordeal, such as frequent headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Resultant nerve damage also means Page is still dealing with pain daily and has to be on a strict pain management plan with heavy medications which leave her drowsy, dizzy and energy scarce. Doctors estimate full recovery to be anywhere between 6 - 12 months.
Although she was lucky to be on a hospital plan which has covered R115, 560 of the hospital fees, there are still significant hospital bills which are not being covered by medical aid (as Page needed a number of specialists to attend to her case, including 2 different neurologists). Additionally, her prescription medication for treatment of her resultant symptoms comes to R2236.09 per month, which she will need for the next 6 months.
We are asking for any support to help lessen the stress caused by the financial burden of what has already been a traumatic and exhausting experience. Any amount will go a long way in supporting Page in her recovery.
