We are VERY DESPERATELY trying to raise money, AS FAST AS POSSIBLE, for Ashleigh to return to U.S.A. for major surgery to bypass diseased arteries. ASHLEIGH BOTHA from SOUTH AFRICA, has INTIMAL FIBROMUSCULAR DYSPLASIA which is a very RARE DISEASE of the arteries. Intimal FMD is a very aggressive and progressive form of FMD which causes her arteries to grow closed on the inside with a long smooth narrowing, and if not treated, close. This limits blood flow to her major organs, causing loss of function and other complications. Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, USA has a specialised FMD unit, where Ashleigh went in 2009 for an aorta/renal artery bypass. She was referred to as a most unusual and unique case, where they see patients from around the world. She needs to return urgently to have an aorta/mesenteric artery bypass to restore blood flow to her digestive organs. She also needs her renal/aorta bypass redone, as her vein used ihas dilated to 4 times it's size. Doctors in SA are unable to help much due to the rarity of Intimal FMD. Our medical Aid can only assist us with less than 1/4 of the cost of her treatment, but we have to pay this full amount and claim it back when Ashleigh returns to S.A.
