We have been inspired by an East London teenage boy; Ntando Nokama, who underwent a double below the knee amputation at the age of eight after suffering from an illness.
Ntando is a committed Grade 10 student at Vukuhambe School for the Disabled in Mdantsane. He is an avid wheelchair basketball player, but his dream is to run and bounce the ball on the court like his hero Michael Jordan.
Ntando currently has limitations to movement with his prosthetic legs with static feet which do not give any spring or ankle movement to allow him to run and move freely around the basketball court.
Marissa Nel & Associates is passionate about improving the quality of our patients lives, so we have launched a fundraising campaign for Ntando which will see him get Bilateral Blades.
We have a large amount of Compression Stockings available which we have committed to donating to anyone who needs, and in return will be asking for a donation towards the Rocking the Stocking fundraising campaign set up to exclusively raise funds towards the Bilateral Flex – Run with Nike sole blades which will allow Ntando’s dream of running on the court come true.
We encourage anyone who needs Compression Stockings to pop into our offices to receive a free pair and help us make Ntando’s dream come true by donating towards the Rocking the Stocking initiative.
