A company rallies help for little Danika Swart.

Danika Swart is just over 6 years old. She was born with a genetic disease - that her father also suffers from. The disease is called Neurofibromatose Type 1. It affects the nerve endings under her skin, which in tern affects all aspects of her skin and muscles. She has needed many types of surgeries and also has hearing problems which affect her speech. Danika needs a lot of help and her parents do not have medical aid, due to employment difficulties.

Initial Request

WATCH: This story on Sunday at 9:20 and 17:55 on "Vat my Hand" sponsored by Builders Warehouse on KykNet, DSTV Channel 144

SPONSORING: Ilanga Construction held a very successful golf day recently and the money raised will go towards good causes in the Phalaborwa and surrounding community. They will donate R30 000,00 of these golf day funds towards Danika's medical bills and needs.

ALSO: Ilanga Construction got a local speech therapist and physio therapist to help Dankia with all her therapy needs and the local Phoscor Mine has committed to transport Danika and her mom between Phalaborwa and Pretoria for medical check-ups and procedures, free of charge - in the mine's private jet!





Below is some information from Danika's doctors' reports in March 2011:

Danika het Neorofibromatose Tipe 1. Haar pa ly ook hieraan.

Haar moeder het 5 maande gelede ‘n groeisel aan haar nekkie regs gemerk. Dit word vinnig groter. Verder het sy veelvuldige Café-au-lait vlekke asook aksillêre sproete. Dar is ook skoliose. Danika se spraak is baie onduidelik. Met nadere ondersoek lyk dit asof daar ‘n neurofibroom aan die binnekant van die mond is - tandvleis van die onderkaak is verdik. Danika het ook atopiese ekseem.

MRI van die brein toon letsels in die basale kerne en hippokampi. Optiese senuwee is normaal.

‘n MRI van die servikale werwels toon veelvuldige neurofibrome in die nek, aan die regterkant is dit in die jugulêre ketting. Daar is ook twee neurofibrome in verhouding tot die spinale kanaal.

Danika moet nog gesien word deur die volgende dissiplines:

Kop-en-nek chirurg
Kaak-en mond chirurg
Gehoortoets
Spraakterapeut
