Hey there lovely people!
My name is Nicaela Kloppers and I am 22 years old. I live in Pretoria, South Africa, where I was born and raised. I am raising money for my surgery (laparotomy), hospital stay and anesthetist costs because my medical insurance refuses to pay and my condition could be life-threatening if my tumor ruptures or turns cancerous, a possibility the doctors have not ruled out. Neither myself nor anyone I know of can afford to pay for me. The benign tumor is on my left ovary and it needs to be removed to avoid further complications. At the moment, its tennis ball-size mass (and growing) places immense pressure on my bladder and potentially, my surrounding organs. My doctor even said that my lower abdomen size is about the same as a woman that is 5 months pregnant... I want to be a mother one day and this condition is standing in the way of my dream. The very thought of the possibility of being unable to have children, brings tears to my eyes... The doctors say that if left too long, I could become infertile, as a result of possible permanent damage to my ovary, which would then have to be removed. There is also a possibility of developing cancer. I dream of being a singer/songwriter as that is something I am very passionate about, and I want to help other people, especially women like myself, with the same condition and in the same situation where medical aids/insurances refuse to pay out. The primary goal of these companies should be to help people, not reject them in their time of need! Please stand with me and donate, even a little if you can, to help me get out of my circumstances, have much-needed surgery and recover. Please share my story x
God Bless you and thank you for taking the time to read my story.
