Hello All! My Name is Leah and I Write this From the heart and From The Words of my Husband - Adam

There are so many ways to help your fellow friends and family and acquaintances, And I have stumbled up on this site and hope and pray that this site and all participants can help make a difference.

Back in early 2005 I had to take nearly 3 years off working as an administration clerk and website administrator due to a condition commonly know as Recurrent Spontaneous Pneumothorax (Commonly known as Bleb Disease or recurring Collapse of the Lungs) This event was reoccurring over a period of 18mths from the initial attack and diagnosis of the medical condition. In the early part of 2007 a procedure called Pleurodysis was formally requested by our states most Distinguished and experienced Respiratory Surgeon Dr Matar on my first Visit with him at the request of a specialist appointment with him and no later than 3 months after the initial consult the procedure took place. An operation for this condition required reforming; repair and placement in to the initial place of where the lung was meant to be,Meanwhile only 5 of the 7 initial blebs were removed. In saying this now in to my 4th year after the Procedure these two remaining blebs have caused somewhat quite a few issues for myself, with two occurrences of Pneumonia, 1st stage lung cancer development on the left lung and showing weakening signs in the opposing lung to the damaged left lung and have in the previous 14mths have suffered unexplainable signs of motor sensory and fine motor movement neurological symptoms coming to play in my everyday life also with the post op condition of emphysema which can be common in some patients with the severe case of this medical condition. In most instances patients will generally have only 1 maybe 2 attacks of Phnuemothorax, in this instance the total has amounted to 11 in total. A long waiting list is apparent in the public health system for consultation and due to the longevity of this condition in my case the public health system seems to only want to shrug it off, Hence my call from the heart for help with the medical expenses to be able to fund the Private Sector health for further treatment and a beyond Satisfactory Rehabilitation. I have a wife and 3 children who I love and care for Dearly, and I am only 30 years of age with a future of uncertainty that lies ahead unless treatment can be stabilised on an ongoing basis. It hurts to awake everyday with every breath I take seems only to be half hearted and quite painful, The need for an at home Oxygen unit will be required sometime in the coming months and with our ever increasing medical and medication bills on the rise the cost of one of these to hire on top of our everyday family living expenses have become out of control with the request of financial assistance from the Government this still does not sufficiently cover these costs as a position in any job description is impossible with Health and Safety concerns of My condition/s and with my Dear wife staying at Home to care for the children and myself Full Time.

I have great faith that God will take care of me. I continue to work hard and ask Him to bless the work of my hands. I also know He uses His people to bless one another. There is no room for pride when you are in need of help. And that I am.

If you feel led to help in any small way...even by donating a dollar...your efforts to help would be greatly appreciated & never forgotten. If you are unable to donate anything, but would still like to help, please consider praying for us. Prayer is a most powerful tool! Don't underestimate the power you have to make a difference.

All Donations will help with the Financial Burden of Costly medical Expense for Private medical care, The purchase of Medical devices for Recovery and Rehabilitation and Ongoing Medications Required.

I am blessed to have friends to reach out to.
