My Dear Brothers, Sisters, Sakerettes, Classmates and People of Compassion & Goodwill! PLEASE, read this excerpt from an email I received from my Sister-Friend - ELVIRE BIYE, a Saker Baptist College Graduating Class of 1981 Classmate whom I have known for over 40 years. It left me HEARTBROKEN, and with no other choice but to start this campaign on her and her son's behalf.
“My son Yannick, (now 22), who went to South Africa suddenly developed a complication on his right abdominal side. Initially, it was thought that it was appendicitis, but when blood was found in his urine, he was admitted in hospital on the 8th of May 2017. Since then it has been a terrible nightmare. The family has put everything together for the various tests, 3 scans, various painkillers and then, in June, we were served with the bill attached below for R72880. We managed to pay R22000 so they could continue treatment. He was then readmitted after one week as the pain became unbearable. Light doses of morphine were administered and all the various tests were repeated with two biopsies conducted. With a double operation needed to remove the obstruction at the renal vein and clear the kidney and urethra from the tumor; we need your support, prayers especially. For my son's surgery in Johannesburg. I need to raise R145,200 without a previous plan. Anything from you will be of great help if you can. Thanks and may God bless you' Elvire
Kind Ladies & Gentlemen, the amount she mentions is the equivalent of a little over 11,000.00 U.S. Dollars, hence the target amount for this campaign. At a time like this when all, if not most of you are overwhelmed with demands and preoccupations of your own, the last thing Elvire or I would have wanted to do is put one more thing on your "TO DO" list BUT, with YANNICK'S VERY LIFE on the balance, we really do not have a choice. PLEASE HELP with whatever it is you find it in your heart and soul to give! GOD BLESS YOU!
