‘n Pragtige kwilt is deur Anita Huysamen gemaak wat deur haar geskenk is om ten bate van Yolande Rodgers se Trustfonds uitgeloot te word. Die gelukkige wenner daarvan, Irene van Blerk van Danger Point, het dit in Vee’s Video in Hoofstraat in ontvangs geneem. Yolanda Rodgers het ‘n jaar gelede ‘n dubbele heupvervanging ondergaan nadat sy met rumatologiese artritis gediagnoseer is. “Al die kraakbene is daardeur vernietig en sy moes met ‘n rolstoel en krukke oor die weg kom,” vertel haar ma, Sonia Rodgers. “Die operasie was ‘n 100% sukses en sy kon ses weke na die operasie reeds sonder enige hulp loop en ‘n motor bestuur.”

Yolanda is tans redelik pynvry, maar bly onder behandeling deur Tygerberg Hospitaal.
Sonja sê sy is ook in ‘n internasionale navorsingsprogram vir artritis, onder leiding van prof Rheuter van Stellenbosch, opgeneem. “Yolanda en ons as familie sê baie dankie vir al die ondersteuning, fondsinsamelingsprojekte en gebede deur almal. Baie dankie ook aan die anonieme donateur wat, toe die krisis op sy hoogste was, binne ‘n oogwink R35,000 in haar Trustrekening inbetaal het. Vir ons was dit ‘n ware wonderwerk. Baie dankie aan die hele gemeenskap - sonder julle ondersteuning sou dit alles nooit moontlik kon wees nie.”
