Help my mom keep her sight

Update posted by Genevieve Stander On May 04, 2017

Hi everyone

This will be my last update on this campaign; yesterday my mom had her sight saving cataract removal surgery, and it's all thanks to the amazing generosity of you beautiful people.

Thank-you from the bottom of my heart for saving my mom's sight. The specialist is phenomenally happy with how the surgery went; my mom had her follow-up appointment today and the doctor was so happy, that instead of wanting to see her next week, she only wants to see her in 2 weeks' time.

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.

Love and light

Today, I paid for my mom's surgery IN FULL. I still cannot believe that through the generosity of friends, family, loved ones and COMPLETE STRANGERS, my mom will keep her sight.

Thank-you to every single person who shared her story, donated and prayed. You are all wonderful people.

We will be paying it forward as we did raise more than what is required, but I am just waiting to see if there will be any additional costs before donating the balance of the funds raised.

Updates to follow.

Love and light xxx

THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU! We've reached our goal, and my mom can now go ahead and book her surgery to save her sight! Humbled by the outpouring of love and support, from those we know and those we don't. You are all incredible human beings for wanting to help, and we love and appreciate every single one of you.

In just 1 short day, 1 DAY, we have gone from being 67% funded, to 97%!! I cannot even begin to express my excitement and happiness and gratitude to all that have contributed financially, and even just shared my mom's story.

We're going to save my mom's sight, and it's all thanks to you, the people of this world that we call home.

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.

Love and light xx

I cannot express enough my gratefulness at the support, love and generosity that has been shown to my mom. Her cataract is unfortunately worsening a lot quicker than her first one 7 years ago, and being that it is in her good eye this time around, it is quite scary watching her become frail in a sense, as she simply cannot see as well as she could say 3 weeks ago. But we're almost 70% there, and I know that we'll save her sight.

So the donations have slowed a bit over the past week, but I'm still 100% confident that we'll raise what we need for my mom's surgery.

Every single cent helps, and we're so very grateful to those of you who have donated already, and for sharing her story x

Less than a week into our fundraising campaign, and we're only $576 or ZAR7000 off of our target.

THANK-YOU to every single person who has donated, or even just ready my mom's story.

I know that we're going to reach our goal, hopefully even exceed our goal, and help my mom keep her sight.

Hi Jean, I did indeed receive your generous donation this morning - I did send you a Whatsapp thank-you. I’ve had a few people battle to donate via this page; I’m so sorry about that but that you for going out of your way to help my mom x

I hope you are soon going to be there Genevieve. I deposited yesterday into your account as I am afraid I just could not get this fund to accept my card, my password and they wanted our security number. What number is that? Do we have one in South Africa? I tried the number on the back of my card, but it didn’t work either, sorry. regards, Jean

Less than 5 days into starting this fundraising for my mom, and we're almost half-way there!

We are so grateful for all of the support shown, and of course the financial donations that we have received thus far.

Her doctor wants the surgery to take place within the next month, and I KNOW that we're going to reach our goal.

Thank-you.

Thank-you.

Thank-you.

Love and light x
