    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    My mother was diagnosed with Usual Interstitial pneumonia in 2010.

    Usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) is a form of lung disease characterized by progressive scarring of the lungs.

    Her doctor's prognosis was, tragically, that she had 10 years left to live, before complete respiratory failure occurs. She seemed to be doing well for a prolonged period of time, but then deteriorated rapidly over the course of the past 2 years... and she is only getting weaker by the day.... she only just recently came out of 7 weeks in hospital and rehabilitation after a relapse...

    Not only has she got UIP though, but, she is in fact also diabetic.

    This is taking an emotional and financial toll on myself and my family... we are struggling to financially support her illnesses and your donations will go towards alleviating my mother's suffering and taking strain off of my mother in law, my cousin and my stepdad who are going above and beyond to clean and feed her.

    The money will go towards the rental of an oxygen cylinder, in case of a power failure. She has to be on oxygen 24/7. This will also in turn encourage mobility, as she will be able to get out of her cramped little room). We can employ a carer to assist her, daily, with her most basic needs as she is very weak and struggles to stand let alone walk. We can buy her proper, healthy meals that will, hopefully, aid in the rise of her energy levels and, be better for a person who is diabetic. We can buy her data for her phone, because, being alone most days she goes onto the internet on her phone and when she runs out, family and friends lose touch and immediately think the worst!

    Thank you, on behalf of myself and my family, God Bless you and thank you in advance for your donation.

    Love, Danielle. xxx

      Hi everyone. I arrived in Cape Town, SA on the 21st of Sept and visited my mom the very next day. She was quite dazed and confused but recognised me after a few moments of disbelief! She has had good days and bad days and is very weak. We were able to hire a carer for her, 7 days a week, 5.5 hours a day. An application for palliative care is also underway. Waiting for the forms and motivational letters to be completed from my mum's GP and Pulmonologist, then we will take those to St Luke's here in Kenilworth. Keep you all posted. Love, Dani xxx

      Hi everyone! My mom unfortunately and a fall on Friday, September 1st. Thankfully my mom in law had stopped by to visit her and was able to help her back into bed. A carer is extremely vital right now, my family are currently sourcing someone to assist my mom on a daily basis.

      Hi everyone :) I have some good news, my family were able to source a very affordable portable oxygen cylinder through a local hospital in Cape Town. This cylinder will have have a storage capacity of 4hrs worth of continuous oxygen flow. Thank you so much for the support, we can now think about getting a 2nd oxygen cylinder for an 8 hour day, buy we will see, depending on how much funds are raised. Thank you so much for your donations and shares. It really means the world to me and my family! xxx
