Politely Pleads: Please
Make Me Mobile!
David Dempsey Dunn was given ten days to live.
His family had asked Blessed Gérard's Care Centre and Hospice to admit him, to spend his last days of life in the best possible care and enable him to have a dignified death.
But God had other plans for him
His state of health improved day by day when he was in our care, so that after three weeks he was strong enough do undergo a life saving operation (amputation of both legs) in hospital and after some further days of recovery and rehabilitation in our centre he has gone home.
The medical staff at the hospital called him their miracle baby". Call it what you like, it is indeed amazing, to see Mr. Dunn looking so well.
The family have requested that we, the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard, help them to raise the funds needed to make Mr. Dunn not only well, but mobile again.
The funds will go towards buying Mr. Dunn a wheelchair. Should there be any balance, it will be used to reimburse Blessed Gérards Care Centre and Hospice for the cost of three weeks of full-time intensive hospice care and various ambulance transports to and from Empangeni and Eshowe hospital.
If you like to help, please send your donation directly to:
