Helping a single mother, Monica, cope with medical help for her boys.

Monica was blessed with four sons, that she's bringing up as a single mom. Her sons are her life and it's a challenge to keep the roof over their heads. She has good friends who help where they can - especially with three of her sons suffering from a very rare disease.

Initial Request

The disease affects their muscles and eye-sight. As a single parent, Monica cannot afford medical aid for her family and they've relied on State facilities. They boys have been though many, painful tests and hospital visits in their lives. They also need to be home schooled as they have bad eye-sight and at times, restricted movement. Her friend, Amanda asked Good Morning Angels to help this mom and her sons to get proper glasses as the estimated R2000,00 per pair, is a financial bridge too far. In fact, normal glasses may not be enough.

ORIGINAL REQUEST:

Goeie more,

Ek wil graag my vriendin, Monica Van Heerden en haar kinders opdra aan die Here, sodat daar ‘n lig vir haar en haar gesin sal wees.

Monica is ‘n enkel-ouer van vier seuns en bly op Burgersfort in Mpumalanga. Drie van haar seuns, het ‘n siekte wat veroorsaak is deur die “Matakodria virus” Dié toestand is amper soos Cerebral Palsy en Bloedkanker – dis baie raar en tas verskeie liggaams-funksies aan – veral die seuns se spiere. Die oudste seun, Armand is nou 18-jaar oud, nadat dokters vir Monica gesê het hy sal nie die ouderdom van 16 jaar nie haal nie. Ten spite hiervan is hy baie positief oor die lewe en da thy gesond gaan word. Die tweede seun, Arno is 15-jaar oud en hy is bestendig en die derde seun, Arno is 13-jaar. Hy sukke veral met sy voete wat swel en moet al weer dokter toe gaan. Al drie die seuns se oë is baie swak. Monica het nie geld vir dokters-besoeke en oog-spesialiste nie – wat nog van brille?

Geld is nie die enigste problem nie. Die seuns moes hulle lewenslank ure by staatshospitale deurbring en hulle is, om die waarheid te sê, baie bang vir enigiets medies. Hulle is al so baie seergemaak en hardhandig behandel, dat enige besoek aan ‘n dokter vir hulle ‘n vreeslike berg is.

Monica, haar drie siek seuns en die vierde seun, Eden, bly tans by my broer op Burgersfort. Hy voel ook baie jammer vir hulle, maar hyself verdien nie genoeg om haar met die mediese onkostes te help nie.

Kan julle dalk vir Monica en die seuns help, asseblief?

Mag die Here julle seën in die werk wat julle doen.
God is met julle almal.

Baie dankie,
Amanda van Der Merwe
