I'm in need of funding assistance in order to purchase a VNS Therapy device for my 10-year daughter (Kuzokuhle Hlongwane), who has been battling epilepsy since when she was 14 months old.

The constant seizures (they occur daily) have changed in their form but despite being on 5 different drugs currently, they have not stopped. As a result, she is delayed in her development and education is basically non-existent.

In January this year, an educational specialist found that her capacity is that of a 5-year-old, which is half her biological years.

The condition has been extremely difficult for her, yet she continues to fight and thrive each day.

The VNS treatment was prescribed by a neurosurgeon, Dr JJ Labuschagne who operates from Centurion, Johannesburg. He advised that since the seizures are not coming from one area of the brain (This was discovered after an EEG assessment), she does not qualify for brain surgery. The device is a non-invasive treatment meant to improve the occurrence of seizures and ultimately the person's quality of life.

The amount required to get the device is R220,000. I am therefore reaching out to whoever can lend a helping hand so that Kuzokuhle can overcome this challenge and live out her full potential.

Thank you for your kindness

Regards,

June Hlongwane.
