R0 of R80 000 raised

I was diagnosed with a petrous apex cholesteatoma in June this year after spending a week in hospital having a battery of tests done. I spent a further 8 weeks on 7000mg of antibiotics daily and 8 weeks of steroids in the hope of shrinking it. On a follow up CT and MRI scans, they discovered it had become progressively worse. This condition is extremely rare and requires surgery to drain it. The only problem is the surgery is extremely complex as there is a 2mm space between the carotid artery, jugular vein and cochlear. Access is not guaranteed as it is so deep in the head.

There is a Prof. Marco Caversaccio in Switzerland that specializes in this type of surgery and is confident that he will be able to gain access to it. My symptoms include extreme headaches, nausea, numbness and pins and needles in the face, weeping left eye and sometimes blurred vision. This is due to the pressure on the cranial nerves. Some days I am unable to work due to these symptoms. Being a husband and father of 3 lovely girls is often difficult as I am unable to give them the attention they deserve.

I would dearly love to be able to raise enough funds so that I can have the surgery done.
Thank you for reading my plea.
Kindest regards
