My name is Mariska Barnard. I am raising funds for my niece, Augusta Zaayman, better known as Tinkie. She is 17 years old and lives in KZN on the South Coast.
Tinkie is in dire need of having breast reduction surgery, she is 17 years old and her current bra size is 36E. She wore size DD's at the age of 14. She has been to multiple doctors for severe migraines, chiropractors because she is always complaining of her back being sore. Just to find out that her posture is severely out of line because of her breasts being so heavy.
Reaching my target will mean that my niece will be able to have breast reduction surgery. She will be able to enjoy life without migraines and back pain every minute of every day. She will be able to play netball at school and also continue with her dancing. The endless battle to find appropriate clothing will also be a thing of the past. She really wants to have this surgery to improve her quality of life as its a massive, painful struggle for her to carry on like this.
I am more than willing to share her medical reports from doctors and chiropractors as well as a plastic surgeon that confirmed that a breast reduction is needed.
