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.
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
