After being in a motorcycle accident over 17 years ago which left him paralised from the chest down, Francois' life changed forever.
Not being able to do some of the day to day activities that most people take from granted, it took some time to adjust to his new way of life. With some determination and support from his family Francois was able to learn to live with his disability and live his life to the fullest.
After being introduced to the XO Skeleton rehabilitation therapy by his cousin, he saw an opportunity to be able to walk again and increase the quality of his life. Even though it will be walking assisted, just the opportunity to stand up again was one that Francois knew he couldn't let go.
With the help of great team at Muelmed Hospital in Pretoria Francois must complete 1000 steps in the device to learn how to operate and walk it on a day to day basis.
Now Francois needs your help to purchase this device. The total cost for the device and the therapy is an astronomical R 1 200 000.
We know every R10 will help to make a difference in Francois' goal to walk again.
