Hi, my name is Tina, I have the privilege to have a stunning, extremely intelligent daughter of 20 years old.
She studied so hard in school and was prefect in her matricyear in 2017.
I moved to Potchefstroom in June 2018 with a dream in my heart, found a good job and was excited to let my daughter's dream come true to study Reflexology. I enrolled.her for the 2 year course. At that time, I could afford it. She started her studies in February. In March I had a heart attack at the age of 49 and subsequently a double bypass Open heart surgery the same month. After a week in ICU, and 3 days in a normal ward, I was sent home to recover. A week or so later I was back in ICU, with wound sepsis and emergency surgery that nearly cost my life. Again I stayed in ICU in and out of consciousness and later moved to the normal ward. I couldn't get better. I had all the doctors puzzled until one specialist said they would have to operate again to see if it was my gallbladder, although the sonars and CT scans showed only gallstones but no infection. Again, emergency surgery, an operation that should have taken half an hour, took 3 hours, my gallbladder ruptured and the fluids were leaking into my belly. The surgeon came to me afterwards and said I single handely let him doubt his career choice. The fact that I was alive after all of this was a miracle.
I took me 4 months to recover enough to go back to work. Because I haven't been working there long enough, I didn't receive a salary for 3 months, got behind on my rent and my daughter's education.
I now have to pay over R63 000 and she has to stop her studies and cannot write year end exams.
While my mind is so foggy and I have PTSD after all that happened to my body, she studied so hard and got extinctions for nearly all her subjects.
I am pleading for help to pay her studies. I didn't plan on this, it feels like a nightmare how I got here.
They also broke in and stole R45 000 worth of goods (which wasn't insured).
I am down and out but I know she deserves better after she also lost her dad at the age of 10.
I am grateful for any help.
