My name is Lizelle and I am starting a fund raising to help my 17 year old Nephew with all his medical expenses.
My Nephew Bernard Seyffert got badly burned when a pot of cooking oil caught on fire and he tried to save the house from burning down so he grabbed the burning pot to run outside with it and he slipped and the hole pot of cooking oil fell all over his body.
They kept him in a adduced coma for 3 months, he was on life support because the inside of his lungs got burnt when he inhaled some of the flames. They feared that he wasn’t going to make it.
Every day they would clean his wound and tried to put skin craft but most of the nerves on his arms and legs was destroyed and its making it difficult for the skin to attach and re grow, now he has to wear protective clothing on his arms and legs to keep the skin intact.
The doctors had to rebuild a complete ear for him as his one ear was completely burned off.
He is such a wonderful young man and his faith in God is stronger than ever because he knows God has more plans for him in this life.
But even though we give him all the love and support we can give, financially my sister is battling to keep her head above water. The medical treatment bills are nonstop. And her medical aid is exhausted. The one bill she has to pay is already on R700,000.00
The one wish he really wish for is to undergo plastic surgery in his face so that people and children don’t look at him like he is something out of a horror movie.
Therefore I would like to start this fundraising to help my sister and Nephew with their medical expense and surgeries that is needed.
Please could you help with a small donation, every little bit will really help and we will forever be grateful.
We really need all the help we can get and we want to thank you for listening to our story.
May God bless you all.
