Heart Surgery 4 month old baby girl

Update posted by katinka minnaar On Feb 17, 2020

Today i spoke to a few people who have gone through the same ( and other heart problems) surgery with there kids but at an older age than Carina. We as a family are a bit more informed now to what will take place and how visiting times and things like that will be like.

From what i understand and have been told my initial amount for the fund raising is not going to be even close to what is needed, to be fair when i set up the fund raising the amount where you put what you think you need was in $ and not ZAR. I have been told that we can look at anything from R100 000 - R250 000. (But saying that we still have no clear idea what the medical aid is going to pay and what not)

In the next few days i am going to phone every person involved with Carina's surgery and the medical aid to get a much better idea of where we need to be.


We as a Family are so thankful for everyone's responses, Whatsapps, Shares via social media and phone calls.

Thank you so much.

And a Even Bigger Thank you to Everyone who has donated thus far, It means alot to us and from the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU.!

ill update this page as i have more info.

Carina has a Ventricular septal defect (VSD) about 8mm wide,

Her Surgery is going to be in the first week in March 2020.

we stay 128,8km from the hospital.

recovery time in Hospital can take anywhere from 7 - 14 days.

she is on a basic medical aid and the cost to us is still unclear.
