Helping Dad get his new hip

Update posted by Vangie Boettger On Feb 16, 2017


  • It is with deep appreciation and thanks to everyone for their love, care, phone calls and donations. Dad went for his final check up today on his heart and other vital organs. The medical aid once again wouldn't cover any tests so he had to walk for 6 mins on a treadmill with one prosthetic leg and a hip that's totally disintegrated which was excruciatingly painful. We are waiting on these results but the doctor is very confident that all is in order and that surgery will take place on the 22nd of February. All of this would not be possible if not for the help of this campaign, a bank loan and the huge generosity of so many friends and family from far and wide, some whom we have only met once, others not at all. We can't thank you all enough.

Below is a breakdown of what the R134 828.00 that had been raised, donated and loaned will be covering.

Hospital cost R 85 570. Prosthetic R38 254 Anesthesia R4094 Doctor Fee R17 893

They gave us a new total of R145 800.11, which is thankfully less than they original quotes we received (very thankful for this)

As you will see, we still have a short fall of R10 983, but we are trusting that God will open other doors.

We will keep you updated on Dads progress as the surgery draws near and his recovery there after. We are asking that each of you uphold him in your thoughts and prayers.

Much love from all of us.
