With Tracey's permission I am sharing her story with hope of getting her the help she needs for the first time in her life. We all knew Tracey. For some who did not know my relationship with Trace, my Mom and Dad were bestest of friends with her adopted parents Elain and Ken. We shared every holiday together at Lotheni, Giants Castle, Injasuthi you name me it if it was the berg we went. Every weekend was shared braaiing and getting up to mischief.

Tracey was always the life and soul of a party...never sat still. Definitely a modern day ADHD. Sadly, Elain Tracey's Mom passed away in Tracey's Gr 12 year having been diagnosed with Cancer eight months prior to her passing. Then a few years later she lost her Dad tragically. It was at this stage Tracey felt very alone, lost and began to dabble with drugs merely trying to numb her pain. Sadly Tracey has a highly addictive personality and it was not long before her life spiralled out of control to feed her habit. She has scammed many people, hurt even more but we know this is the life of an addict. Tracey has to live with memories of her self she certainly is not proud of. However, She has committed to making right with all after she recovers. Whilst up the North Coast working in a club Tracey was at rock bottom and a lovely chap took her under his wing. She came down to Pennington went cold turkey and managed to get off hard drugs turning her life around. She got custody back to see her kids and really did well for many years. However, still had not given up alcohol. Then Covid hit and life began to crumble for Tracey once again. Tracey and her husband Gavin, a wonderful man who she has been married to for 10 years relied on the hospitality Industry for an income. They like many struggled. They thus invited a chap to move in to share their rent. Tragically this chap had a history of using drugs and it was not long before Tracey gave in. Crack became her best friend once again. This she hid from all that loved her for two years. It all came to a head on Wednesday evening last week when we almost lost Tracey to drugs. It had all tragically got too much her her to bare. She ended up in a hospital emergency lifeless. By God's grace Trace has been saved and I believe she has a story to tell many when she is well. Tracey is under psychiatric care for a few weeks and we will be taking her to beautiful Christian based rehabilitation centre after she is stabilized. The centre has been recommended by a family friend and one of the most reasonable there is. It is R4000 per month. Traceys husband has just moved to the Eastern Cape so he is looking for work. It was never their plan for this to happen. Tracey will need to do the 1 year program. Then we will arrange for her to go to a step down program from there. I'm appealing to all who know Tracey and feel led to help to her day consider donating to her rehab it does not matter how small. The total amount needed is R 48 000. These monies will not be given to Tracey. I will manage their funds on their behalf and pay the rehabilitation centre monthly. My husband and I will be transporting Tracey directly from hospital to her facility in the Gauteng region. at the end of the month. May God bless all abundantly.

Hi all, in amongst all the craziness of getting TJ into rehab and me getting back to school, I have not had much time to keep everyone updated. Firstly and most importantly, Tracey has now been in rehab for TWO weeks. I cannot chat to her personally for FIVE weeks. . . . .
