Urgent Help Needed for Faseegah
We urgently need help for Faseegah, one of our Little Fighters in the Western Cape – either monetary or product and/or labour.
Faseegah is one of our Little Fighters who unfortunately relapsed about 2 years ago and has put up a very brave fight since. Recently she had more tests done and the results were not good.
The doctors discovered that Faseegah has a hole in her stomach for which she required immediate medication, but since she no longer has any viable veins for a drip because of all the chemotherapy treatments she has undergone, they had to take her into theatre and insert a Hickman Line so that they could administer the required medication.
It is thought that the hole in Faseegah’s stomach could be as a result of the 30+ tablets she has to drink daily as part of her cancer treatment.
Faseegah is still in High Care since her surgery and will have to remain in hospital for another month or more. She is in constant pain as she has gained a lot of weight due to steroid treatments, but is constantly hungry as she cannot eat anything at the moment due to the hole in her stomach. She is being fed intravenously but is really having a hard time of it.
While our supporters have been great and have helped with transport for her family to visit with her in hospital on Eid ~ Heartfelt thanks to Zeriena Jacobs from Voice of the Cape Radio for organising that ~ we urgently need help to make Faseegah’s home safe for her return.
It is winter in Cape Town, and it is cold and wet, and the last thing a Little Fighter needs is to return to a home where her mother has to sweep the rainwater out of the house and all the furniture and bedding and virtually everything else is damp. The roof is leaking and rainwater is coming into their home and flooding it, seeping into the furniture and other items and creating a very cold,damp and unhealthy home – one to which a Little Fighter CANNOT return for fear of infection.
What We Need
- We need gutters to be put up around their accommodation
