Caylum Willemse baby
« on: August 02, 2016, 07:32:07 PM »
Guys, please consider at the very least a R20 SMS, it seems they are already 80% on target to the objective oif R7,000,000 to save the youngster's life.

Caylum was born on January 12 2016 in Johannesburg, and was diagnosed with tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF) and oesophageal atresia (OA) and tracheobronchomalacia, a rare condition where the tracheal (windpipe) cartilage is soft.

 He has stopped breathing and has had to be resuscitated over 10 times, it is a miracle he doesnít have brain damage.

 Caylum requires a complex procedure and there are no doctors in South Africa who can perform this. There is a doctor in America who has pioneered a procedure that will save Caylumís life.

 We are raising funds to get Caylum to Boston!

You can Also Donate by SMS'ing CAYLUM to 40555 and Donate R20 per SMS to give the gift of life.

I'd like to BUMP this again.

Please help a good cause.  R20 is nothing compared to what we spend without thinking about it.

We lost our first born at age 10 days.  I promise you if there was ANY way I could have helped him I would.  This child has a change and the only obstacle for him now is money.  We all know that if each of us helps just a little bit we could help him and his family.

Let's help Caylum guys.

Done but any idea how much they still need? Not on FB so no idea how the fundraising is going.

Spoke to Kelly.  As of EOB Friday they were at R2.1m.
They need USD500,000 or R7m(R6.8 considering today's exchange rate).
They are in talks with medical who can possible reduce this by 30%-40% which will help a lot.
