Judith Kgoale started this petition to Ms. Gladys bogoshi (Charlotte Maxeke CEO) and

Thank you for coming through to help us raise our voice. My son is 5 years old and has Sleep apnea. He has been going for treating at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital for the past 3 and. Half years. We were told we needed to wait for him to be at least 5 years old to be able to undergo a tonsillectomy surgery. We got booked 3 times for surgery and none of them went through... Because he stops breathing for a long period of time at night.. They will need to put him in Icu right away after surgery. The issue is that the hospital has been booking him to go for surgery.. But everytime we go there.. We get told 6-10 hours later that unfortunately they will have to cancel because they do not have icu beds. 

This has put so much strain on him.. That we both only sleep for 2-3 hours every night... Because I have to interrupt he's sleep as he will stop breathing and gagging.  It pains me every night and day to see what he is going though.. And knowing I can't help woth anything. 

 

I am a single mother.. Work in retail and can't afford medical insurance. This has also put so much strain to me emotionally and physically. I can't even remember a day I had a proper sleep.. Because I can't afford to eep and not care whether my son is breathing or not. 

 

I humbly ask that you sign up to help raise my issue with the hospital with the hopes of being heard and my son's case prioritized. 

 

Thank you. 

GOD BLESS YOU
