Mama Leonie

Update posted by ronel winterbach On Dec 02, 2019

We are raising funds for Leonie de Lange who is in desperate need of Interventional Radiology or alternatively, surgery.

Her story started on 26 November 2019, exactly 1 month before her 54th birthday.

She went to work, not knowing her life was about to change forever. This was supposed to be her last week at work as she was retrenched. With stress, combined with high blood pressure all lead to her ending up in ICU just hours after she started her day.

She got to work and complained of a terrible headache and started vomiting. She was taken home where she said her head is on fire. Bags of ice were placed on her head and neck. Suddenly she vomited and fell to the ground...she was unconscious. She was rushed to the Emergency Rooms and a CT scan showed bleeding on the brain. The doctor rushed her to theatre where they drained the blood and saved her life.

Dr. Setati explained that she had numerous small strokes and that an aneurysm in the frontal lobe was his biggest concern. Unfortunately, she was too weak to be moved to Unitas. There they would be able to do a life saving Embolization procedure to block the aneurysm. If however she is not a suitable candidate for this procedure, she would have to undergo surgery to remove the aneurysm.

Currently they keep her sedated and on the ventilator to stabilize her. She is still in ICU and due to the sedation we are still waiting for her to open her eyes and tell us to stop making a fuss...

Please look inside your hearts and make a donation to save this wonderful, angel to all. Every donation, whether big or small, will make a difference.
