Matthew is in need of your urgent help in order to receive the correct medication for his common variable immunodeficiency. Without your help, he will not be receiving the correct amount of medication. Please help us to raise enough funds for him.

Matthew and his sister Tiffani were born with what is called CVID, common variable immunodeficiency.  Both were being treated under a Professor,with the medication called Octagam once a month through an IV drip.Matthew had an unfortunate experience in the last month, where he had a reaction to the Octagam and caused him to end up in hospital having lumbar punctures, MRI scans and sonars.  Unfortunately he is now unable to receive the Octagam as its a gamble as to whether or not he would have the same issues happen again. The option now is to move to the subcutaneous medication which is extremely costly. The medical aid will cover a portion of this every month, but I am short R5000 per month on a 4 week month and R10000 on a 5 week month.  There is also the cost of a pump to purchase of over R8000 which medical aid does not cover. If I cannot raise enough money, Matthew will not receive the correct amount of medication each month, which could lead to more infections.  Matthew and I are requesting any form of support no matter how big or small that you can give us to help him lead a normal healthy life. Thanks to all the local and international kind hearted people matt could start his therapy on his correct level for this month. It’s been a very trying time for the past two days but my little boy has managed to be so brave. I can only thank the support we have received, please don’t stop with the support
