Halala: Peeps pull through by helping raise funds for woman's medical care
Earlier, Briefly News reported that in the true spirit of Ubuntu Mzansi peeps banded together for the greater good to help a fellow sister in need. Through sharing her story online, liver transplant survivor Mimo Mokgosi was able to raise the funds needed for a Lymphadema drainage machine.
She shared the good news on her Twitter account:
“In less than 2 hours Twitter helped me raise the funds for the Lymphadema drainage machine. I am forever grateful. Modimo o moholo.”
Lymphedema is a condition caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system, part of the immune and circulatory systems. According to the Mayo Clinic, Lymphoedema is most commonly caused by lymph node removal or damage due to cancer treatment. The main symptom is swelling in an arm or leg that may be accompanied by pain or discomfort.
