UPDATE on 28 Jan:
Brendon has since gone for the operation through a States Hospital - after a Saint at the hospital came to our saving, which saved us thousands of rands! However, Brendon sadly lost his job...
We are now left with two months rent to pay, as well as living and medical costs. He will only be able to go job searching after the 6 week rehabilitation process is over.
----------My daughter's fiance, Brendon de Kock, (he will turn 32 on 29/02/2020) experienced a lot of pain in his back since early Dec 2019. On Christmas Day, he couldn't take the pain anymore, took him to state hospital, they sent him home with pain medication after taking x-rays. Yesterday (09/01/2020) he went for a MRI scan to a private doctor and the doctor informed them that he needs an operation urgently. His L5 disk has to be removed. As he does not have a medical aid, we tried the option of State hospital, but the doctor said we cant wait that long and it needs to be urgently - the longer we wait the more dangerous it becomes! He is in a LOT of pain, and he is not allowed to walk at all, nor drive! After the operation he can't go back to work for at least 3 months, luckily his boss said he will keep his position open, but no work no pay! Please open up your hearts and help us to raise the money for the operation which will be approximately R80 000. He is young man, with a very good heart. My heart is aching on his behalf. Please please we need your help. God bless.
