Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We as a family are in desperate need to get my Aunt the treatmeant she needs.
My Aunt who is originally from South Africa Port Elizabeth moved to the UK and After suffering for over four decades being mis-diagnosed with Lymphoedema she now has the correct diagnosis of Lipoedema thanks to the UK doctors. This is a chronic disorder of adipose tissue and lymphatic vessel dysfunction which is passed down genetically in females. As it has taken so long for her to get a proper diagnosis She is now at Stage 4 so not sure where we go from here but she will be fighting all the way.
She was live on ITV a few weeks ago with regards to her condition she is hoping as the show is aired many more suffering ladies out there will be motivated to seek help for this condition and that more research will be done to find a cure.
The procedure she needs is not available on the NHS and there is only One doctor in the UK who can help her. They have estimated the cost to be £15000.00.
Please can I ask you to circulate this so we can get my Aunt the treatmeant she deserves to live a normal life again.
No amount is too small every penny counts and will get us one step closer.
Thank you so much!
