The Claassen-family of four were on their way home after visiting in-laws in Makopane when they had a terrible car accident on Sunday, 3 March 2019. They were rushed to the Trauma unit Med24 at Montana Hospital closest to the accident scene, where all were attended to. Janco and his mother, Carla, were both admitted to ICU that same evening.
Janco Claassen, who was only 5 weeks old at the time, was fighting for his life with a severe head injury. He stayed under sedation in ICU to help his brain to heal, while Carla was discharged on 09/03/2019 to recover at home.
The Medical insurance fund ran out with 10 days in ICU, and doctors were unsure how long Janco had to get treatment in hospital, and rehabilitation afterwards. The Claassen`s needed urgent financial assistance as the bills were getting higher by day, and that is why we initially started making bracelets for Janco – to help with his medical expenses.
Update 28 August 2020: Janco (turned 1 yr. old in January) went for tests this week which showed that his brain was very badly hurt. His whole brain is full of water, and it is only the stem of the brain that is healthy. The next step is to get him to a baby Therapy Center, and an Orthopedist, who will do all his surgeries if necessary. Sadly, the case with the Medical insurance fund has not changed and urgent funds are still needed to help pay the bills.
Please open your heart and help give Janco a fighting chance by supporting our fundraising initiative. Together we can change his world, one bracelet at a time!
