HOLLYN’S HEART MATTERS – GOAL R 400 000
Without even realizing that our happiness could be short-lived, we started making innumerable plans for welcoming our princess into the world when we found out we were expecting…
When Hollyn was born, 16 February 2019, the doctors ran tests for down syndrome and hypoglycemia. Just when we were coping with this news, numerous tests confirmed that she has AVSD (Atrioventricular Septic Defect), this is a heart defect and baby Hollyn has 2 holes in her heart, both 7mm wide each and her little heart is leaking as well.
The sad reality is that this little princess will need to have an operation done before she turns 6 months old or she will not make it, in a few months she might also have cardiac failure. She has been placed on a waiting list at a hospital for this operation, however, there are only 2 surgeons performing this operation (government), and they only operate twice a week. We have been told that there are over 400 babies needing the same operation and chances are Hollyn might not make it in time.
We are looking at going private for this much needed operation but it will cost roughly R400 000.
We are appealing to family, friends and the general public to assist us in raising funds. We are setting up trust funds as well and are praying for a positive outcome.
If you, or anyone you know, are willing and able to assist, no matter how big or small, it will be dearly appreciated.
Thank you all in advance, God bless you.
