It was a lovely day for a ride on my bike, the sun was shining and warm. Little did I know that this day would change every aspect of my happy life. On the ride with my brother and some friends, I was very unfortunate to hit a patch of gravel on the road in a curve and lost control of my bike. In the ensuing fall I damaged the soft tissue in my shoulder, my arm and my leg, I broke my knee and suffered a bleed on the brain. My bike was completely trashed and has since been written off. I have contributed to a medical aid for over 10 years with no claims but they have failed to cover all the medical bills. That one day has changed my life and left me in a lot of debt. My employer has decided due to financial constraints in the business to make my recovery period unpaid and are on the verge of closing the doors which leaves me in a dilemma. I am not able to walk yet due to the injuries and am working hard with a physio to get back on my feet.
I am asking for help, any help, to pay the medical bills for the wonderful surgeons whose work is highly under valued by the medical aids.
