Luciano has suffered a severe stroke on 4 November 2019.
He was rushed to hospital for a CT Scan and other tests and nothing was picked up. This was done at a private hospital and an amount of over R20 000.00 ( 1,369.84 USD) was charged to his credit card on that day.
He's right side of body got weaker and speech unclear throughout the day and night. The next morning we went to a state hospital as we do not have medical aid. Another scan and tests were done and we discovered it was indeed a stroke. The stroke wasn't big enough the previous day for them to pick it up.
It's has been a month since Luciano went home and the medical bills are just piling up and this is my reason for creating this fundraising campaign. He has been in hospital just over 3 weeks and is now at a hospice where he will be getting rehabilitation. We are looking at all options to get him better as soon as possible. He will be unable to work for sometime and will be wheelchair bound for sometime. He's right side of his body still can't move.
