I'M LOOKING TO MY FELLOW MOTHERS AND FATHERS TO HELP ME FIGHT THIS BATTLE AND SAVE MY SON'S MEMORIES!
My son was diagnosed with Epilepsy in January 2018 and has been on so many different medications to try and get the seizures under control, but nothing has worked. He is currently on 3 Anti-Epileptic Drugs, but we are still no closer to getting any answers, because the specialist at the hospital only sees him every 6 months.
I have exhausted every bit of money I had left and even cashed in the money that was supposed to be for my retirement. Now I'm about to lose my home and the vehicle I use to get my son to hospital and back.
MEMORIES ARE FADING
As I previously mentioned, my son is slowly losing his memories and it's not just after seizures, it's long term memories that's fading away.
You know when when you sit with your child and reminisce about what happened years ago? Now I get a blank stare that shows he has no idea what I'm talking about. He doesn't remember anything he's supposed to do or planned on doing. Also forgets trying to learn new skills, it has reached the point that he no longer remembers how to do the work he has done for so many years.
My goal is to raise at least R250,000.00 which will be used to get my son to private doctors, neurologist and neurosurgeons that specialise in Epilepsy as the public healthcare system has said that there is nothing they can do for him, just more meds.
