Helping a family care for their little baby Jadine

Baby Jadine is 8 months old and has been in en out of hospital her entire little life. She was born on 9 April - 7 weeks premature. She had a heart operation at the age of just 4 days - and her lungs were underdeveloped. Since then, she's had meningitis, a drain from her brain to her stomach and a procedure to mend a gap in her skull. Her special needs have all been dealt with in a state hospital. Her parents just don't have the means and she has been placed in her grandparent's guardianship.

Initial Request

Good afternoon,



I‚??ve taken it upon myself to help a little baby girl named Jadine Kleynhans. She‚??s my little cousin. Since she came out of hospital the last time, I‚??ve been trying to raise funds for her, in order for her grandparents to get her to doctors that can help her. I‚??ve also helped them get donations for her basic day to day needs up until now.



She currently is under treatment of Dr Madri Saaiman (chiropractor) and Dr Gerhard Durandt (homeopath). She‚??s also receiving physio on a weekly basis, and they are also going for some more tests for her ears on Friday 25 November.



We still need to get her to an eye specialist, who will be able to determine how much Jadine can see, and if she will need any treatment in this regard.



I‚??ve attached Jadine‚??s life story, as well as the reports from Johannesburg General Hospital, and Dr Madri Saaiman.



Jadine is being adopted by her grandparents, Japie and Sonet Kleynhans, as her own parents can't look after Jadine and her special needs. Jadine‚??s grandfather, is my uncle.



Jadine is now 7 months old, and weighs only 3.9kgs. She‚??s on NAN AR formula, and is starting on solids as well.



If there is any way that you could assist with the medical expenses, or just the general costs of the day to day expenses for this child, I would greatly appreciate it. She‚??s gone through so much already in her short life of 7 months, and will still face many more obstacles.



Her grandparents are really great people, and they have given up all their spare time and money to care for Jadine. If there is nothing that you could help with for Jadine, could you then please try to get some sort of pampering/spa treatment for my uncle and aunt, just to show them how much we appreciate them for what they have already done for Jadine, and what they are still prepared to do for her in the future.



I‚??ve started a facebook page for Jadine as well http://www.facebook.com/JadineKleynhans



Kind regards,

Janita Strydom

Baie dankie aan Jacaranda 94.2 en Instantlife vir die bydrae van R20 000 vir Jadine. Dit gaan beslis die pad vorentoe met haar mediese behandeling ligter maak.

Dankie ook aan Caring Daisies wat 3 maande se voorraad van haar basiese benodighede voorsien het. \'n Groot dankie ook aan Angels Without Wings wat vir Jadine onder hul vlerk geneem het, en ook \'n groot skenking gemaak het met speelgoed, melk, doeke en nog \'n hele klomp ander goedjies.

Ek wil ook net graag aan die volgende mediese personeel baie dankie sê vir die behandeling wat hulle vir Jadine gee:

Chiropraktisyn - Dr Madri Saaiman (Brakpan) (011)740-9322

Homeopaat - Dr Gerhard Durandt (Brakpan) (011)817-3755

Fisio - Marna Nel (Alberton) Baby Therapy (011)869 3137 of www.babytherapy.co.za

Pediater - Dr Marilee Kriel - Clinton Clinic (011)869-1775

Audioloog - Clair Bouw Audiology Inc (Alberton) (011)907-9445

Met die behandeling wat Jadine vanaf hierdie mediese personeel op \'n baie gereelde basis kry, toon sy vreeslike goeie vordering. Elkeen van hierdie mense het \'n baie groot invloed op Jadine se lewe, en ons kan nie genoeg dankie sê vir dit wat hulle vir haar doen nie. Sy gaan ook vroeg in 2012 vir \'n ABR in Johannesburg.

Jadine is nou 8 maande oud, en het die 5kg merk op haar gewigkaart gehaal.

Ons is baie trots op ons klein prinsessie wat so dapper veg om gesond te word.

Weereens baie dankie aan elkeen wat sover \'n donasie gemaak het

Hierdie dogtertjie het my vreeslik geraak. Ek kan nie haar gesiggie uit my gedagtes kry nie en sal haar baie graag wil help.

Ons het so baie om voor dankbaar te wees.

Sy is \'n regte klein vegtertjie en verdien om nog meer gehelp te word as wat daar reeds vir haar gedoen is.

Ek doen hiermee \'n beroep op ander om ook vir die ou dingetjie van hulp te wees.
