Deon is a father, a friend, a son and brother, and the best person with the biggest heart that you will ever meet. He brings love, laughter and joy to every single person he crosses paths with.

About 2 months ago he suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed because of an E.coli bacteria that decided to grow between his C3-C7 vertebrae. Doctors believed that he would most probably be a paraplegic for the rest of his life, and they were not convinced that he would ever be able to breathe on his own again. They basically prepared us for the worst.

Since then Deon has made progress that can only be described as being a miracle! He can use his arms & hands (to an extent), is able to move his toes and last week even started lifting his left knee ever so slightly! But most importantly – He is breathing on his own!!! The doctors still plan on doing a neck fusion, but due to a septic bedsore, we have no idea when this will take place. Deon is not on a medical aid or insurance, and the road to full recovery is going to be a long, hard and expensive one. He is currently still in the High Care ward in Tygerberg Hospital, waiting patiently to go to a Rehabilitation facility.

Deon has an AMAZING testimony to share.
• He has a life to live.
• He has a purpose that is not yet fulfilled.
• He is alive today because there is a bigger plan for his life.
• He is his sons’ superman and his little girl’s prince.

Nobody prepared him or his children for this, and there are still expenses that need to be taken care of, for now and in the future.
