Repeat - Angelique gets funding for a cornea transplant.

Angelique is 16-years old with her life before her. She's never had health issues, but last year developed an infection in her one eye.

Initial Request

They eye just wouldn't get better and after several doctor's and specialist appointments, the infection cleared up and then it was discovered that the cornea had been damaged causing the eye to go blind.



Angelique's sight can be restored by a transplant, if her eye stayed infection free for a year. This was achieved, but her single mother struggled to keep up with treatment bills as she cannot afford a medical aid. Paying for the transplant is however beyond her means. That's why our Angels, the Caring Daisies stepped in and launched a piggy-bank project to help collect the R50 000,00 needed to give Angelique her sight back.

ORIGINAL REQUEST:



Goeiemore Anria.



Ek het na vanoggend se Good Morning Angels geluister en die werk wat julle doen is absoluut awesome!

Ek het vandag ‚??n request, ek is seker julle kry meer daarvan as enigiets anders, en elkeen wat jou mail glo hulle situasie is spesiaal, maar ons sal baie dankbaar wees as julle sal oorweeg om hierna te kyk. Ons het ‚??n baie goeie vriendin, Tanya Human, wat ‚??n enkel mamma is met ‚??n pragtige 16 jarige dogter, Angelique. So ongeveer ‚??n jaar terug het Angelique begin probleme ondervind met haar een oog wat ‚??n infeksie in gekry het. Na vele ondersoeke by die oogspesialis is bevind dat haar kornea sodanig beskadig is dat sy ‚??n oorplanting moet kry, en sy kan nou niks meer sien met die oog nie. Tanya het nie ‚??n mediese fonds nie en hierdie laaste jaar was dit vir haar ongelooflik moeilik om die medikasie te dek om die infeksie gesond te kry. Angelique se oog moet vir ‚??n jaar infeksievry wees voor hulle kan opereer en hulle sal einde Februarie hoor wanneer die operasie kan plaasvind. Die kwotasie wat Tanya gekry het vir ‚??n nuwe kornea vir haar meisiekind beloop so tussen R40000 en R50000. Sy het ‚??n fondsinsamelings rekening oopgemaak vir Angelique, maar nie enige van die vriende is regtig in ‚??n posisie om ‚??n groot verskil te maak nie. My 16 jarige seun (wat groot maats is met Angelique) en sy maats is op die oomblik besig om ‚??n ‚??Blik-skud‚?Ě oggend te reel om te kan help! Ons sal dit so waardeer as julle moontlik kan help om dinge bietjie makliker te maak vir hierdie mamma en haar meisiekind. Baie dankie en hou asseblief aan om julle wonderlike werk te doen, dis fantasties!



Hoop julle het ‚??n mooi dag.

Mariana Senekal
