When my husband retired we decided to relocate to Welkom to live with one of my daughters. Unfortunately, since we moved here, my health has deteriorated to such an extent that I am oxygen dependent 24/7.
My problems started with asthma that was caused by an allergy to the mine dust from the gold mines surrounding our area, In a gold mine they use cyanide to extract gold from the rocks resulting in this dust containing small amounts of cyanide. Some people are very sensitive to this substance, and I am one of those people.
The asthma got so bad that it affected my heart causing arrythmia and I had heart failure several times. I have been put on anticoagulants to prevent blood clots from forming. At times my heart does not pump at all - it vibrates - resulting in the blood not flowing through the heart as it should.
I have been advised by my doctor that I have to remove myself from the cause of my asthma or it could be fatal. Unfortunately being retired with only a small pension from my husbands company we cannot afford to relocate, We can move back to where we were living before moving here, but we need funds for that.
This is why I decided to try crowdfunding begging people to please help me.
