Chris Liebenberg & JJ Hattingh get new hearing aids.
Good Morning Angels got a very generous offer from Oticon ... to help three people, from the thousands of emails we receive to firstname.lastname@example.org ... to hear again. As we are in radio, hearing is very close to us all at JacarandaFM. Our three recipients are very different, from different places in the country and different ages. What they have in common, is that they desperately need help, and that the help from Oticon will change their lives ...

ORIGINAL REQUEST 1:
Dear Good Morning Angels
I would like to ask for your help.
I listen to Jacaranda FM every morning on my way to work and I heard about you who helped your friend by going to the Good morning Angles.
I am 18 years old and could not go to University to study due to financial reasons, therefore I started working to help my mother and father to keep their heads above the water. I have a sister (20) and a brother (15). My sister could also not study due to financial reasons, she is still without a job. She bakes cakes and tarts to have an income to save for university she wants to become a chef. My brother is in a special school because he is 80% deaf and cannot perform academically, he has learned to work with his hands.
My father have not taken leave for 5 years now, during that time he has worked very hard to become a manager at the job he was working at, he then got demoted in 2009, he was forced to have 2 jobs. In August 2009 he gave his name up for a food stand at a flea market close to our house, it's called the "De Deur Flea Market". Since then we have been working there every Saturday for an extra income, preparing the food every Friday night. In 2010 he started to get a rash on his skin, at first we thought it was because of all the stress, but when he went to the doctor he was diagnosed with Gilberts syndrome. Because he was demoted he could not afford any medical treatment, for my brother whom is deaf had used the medical aid for new hearing instruments because a boy at his school broke his left hearing instrument. In 2010 he got a new job, finally everything was going ok but we still needed to work at the flea market as the income of his salary still wasn't enough. He was the only one with a job and needed to care for the 5 of us. In 2012, just as we thought everything was better, my mother was in a car accident, and all our savings went to fix her car, because that was the only way to get my brother to school. Then in March 2012 my father lost his job, he had even more worries because we did not have a medical aid after he lost his job, and he does not have any pension. I then speeded up my search for a job and a guy in my church whom knew about our troubles offered me a job in Randburg. In April 2012 my dad got a new job, no medical aid, no pension and half of what his salary was. Now after 23 years of trying to go to the top my father needs to start from the bottom again, he has not taken leave in 5 years and he barely has a weekend to rest.
I just want to ask you to please help me to get to the Good Morning Angles to help my father, I know it is the month of mother's day but I really want my father and mother to have a break from all of this hecticness.
Please if you'll be so kind to tell me how you got to talk to them about you friend with cancer.....please send my love to her and know that we will pray for her in her painful days.
It will be much appreciated.
Thank you so much
ORIGINAL REQUEST 2:
Goeie dag Angels. My naam is Zanie, ek weet nie waar om te begin nie.. Dit is baie hartseer!
Ek het 'n vriendin, Daleen Liebenberg. Sy word nou die 24ste September 42. Sy woon tans in Barberton, Mpumalanga. Sy en haar twee kinders onderskeidelik 13 en 12 bly by haar ouers en die is pensioenarisse. Hulle sukkel om kop bo water te hou a.g.v Daleen wat in 2009 met borskanker gediagnoseer was!
Sy was vir behandeling in Pretoria by Steve Biko en sy het dit gemaak. Skaars 'n jaar en ses maande in remissie en sy het weer slegte nuus gekry! Sy is nou vroeg in Junie 2012 gediagnoseer met terminale LEWER KANKER!!!! Sy het geen medies nie en is afhanklik van staats behandeling wat baie goed is vir haar!
Dus beteken dit sy moet elke tweede of derde week Pretoria toe reis om te gaan vir Chemo, waar sy nie regtig die finansies het om so te reis nie... Haar pa, ry haar elke keer op vir die behandeling omdat sy nie van publieke vervoer kan gebruik maak na die behandeling nie.
Hulle finansiele status is beroerd. Daleen was al vir soveel werks onderhoude, maar hulle gee altyd terugvoer met die redes soos bv. Hulle kan haar nie so baie siekverlof dae gee om te gaan vir haar behandeling ni. So dus sukkel sy rerig om finansieel sterk te wees.
Haar pa, Oom Chris, is gehoor gestremd, hy moet nuwe gehoor apparate kry, maar weereens, finasieel kan hy nie. Hy en sy vrou, Tannie Maryna kry saam pensioen en dit is nie eers genoeg om hulle huur of iets te betaal nie!! Daar is dae wat hulle nie eers weet waar kom die volgende dag se brood vandaan nie!!
Daleen se twee kinders Christine(13) se pa is oorlede so klaar kry hulle geen onderhoud gelde nie en Chris(12) se pa is oorsee en hy wil niks met die kind te doen he nie. Chris is as kind gediagnoseer met ADHD. Hy is ook tans op medikasie.
Die voertuig waarmee hulle ry het soveel meganiese probleme dat hulle dit nie kan bekostig om te herstel nie en maar so moet klaar kom! Hulle kan ook nie 'n nuwe motor bekostig nie en stap maar waarheen hulle wil gaan! Kom koue, wind of reen!
My hart is in stukke en ek weet nie meer hoe om die lewe vir haar as mens makliker te maak nie behalwe om haar by te staan deur die moeilike tyd! Ek bid elke aand dat Onse Vader haar gesond maak en vir my iewers lig sal bring oor hoe ek haar en haar gesin se lewe kan verander!
Ek wil ook graag my eie hare laat afsny om vir haar 'n pruik te laat maak, omrede pruike so duur is. Ek wens ek het die finansies gehad om haar op 'n Cruise Ship te vat en haar te pamperlang vir die vriendin wat sy werd is en meer.!
Is daar dalk 'n manier dat julle, Good Morning Angels my kan help om die gesin te help? Om 'n verandering in hulle lewe te maak soos hulle in myne gemaak het! Ek is baie lief vir my vriendin en sal enige iets doen vir haar!!
