We all want our children to be happy and healthy, and we would do whatever we can to make that happen. This is true for Marius and Janine Jerling who have 4 children, including 10 year old Janika.
However, this has become especially difficult for the Jerlings because a year ago Janika was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes. Her body does not produce insulin, which means that she needs to prick her finger 8 - 10 times a day to ensure that her blood sugar levels are correct.
If those finger pricks don't happen, she might fall into a coma or even die.
She also needs regular blood tests, daily insulin shots and has to be on a special diet - all of which is a massive financial burden on her family.
Because of her sensitive condition, Janika needs to be constantly monitored by her parents - they even
have to check her sugar levels when she sleeps, which means this bubbly, smart and inquisitive young girl cannot live the life of a normal child.
Her parents have tried to raise funds for a Continuous Glucose Monitor, which is a device with an
alarm which would alert her parents as soon as Janika’s glucose level move to dangerous levels.
This means she would not have to prick her finger anymore, and might bring some level of normality to her young life.
However, the monitor is expensive and is beyond what her family can afford.
Luckily, our friends at Ethitech would like to offer Janika HERVERY OWN Dexcom G4 Continuous Glucose Monitor with all the accessories!
And to make sure that you have enough sensors to last a year, Kawari Wholesalers would like to sponsor the remaining 5 sensors!
All of this to the value of R82 000!
