26-year-old Nompilo from Swaziland has been living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a genetic disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system, and other organs in the body.

Nompilo is at the end stage of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and is said to be shutting down. She lived without medication that would treat CF for most of her life and because of that, her lungs are “exhibiting traits of the prolonged and painful decline, as represented by a recent lung function test which showed her lungs can intake only 9% of oxygen”.

Nompilo sought help from South Africa (the nearest country to Swaziland) but the doctors informed her that they will not be able to perform the surgery since she is not a citizen of the country.

A lung transplant in India is now her only hope at a better life.

A GoFundMe campaign was started to raise the funds for the lung transplant which costs almost 2 million rands but only $4,824 (R68230.17) has been raised of the $100,000 (R1414390.00) goal.

The funds raised through the campaign will help Nompilo travel to India and get transplant surgery.

Nompilo had lost all hope when Cassper came around and offered to be of assistance.

She said on Twitter: “Tomorrow my psychologist is preparing me for my next life since I’m at the end stage, so now I have to live my life knowing I might die soon, since lung transplant us far-fetched for now, Doctors are just going to try all they can to keep me in less pain and help me transition well”

In another tweet, she said “Basically I’m being told I’m about to die. I’m being told I need to prepare myself, yaze yabamnandzi imphilo yami yuuuuuuu but I don’t wish it for anyone else, imane igcine ngami nje please”

“Please do keep me in prayers as I pray for myself too, I’m struggling to fight the urge of taking all my pills and just ending it, yesterday was my first attempt and nothing happened, I’ve been fighting it since morning, I’m trying my best and I don’t want to disappoint myself”

Cassper said, “Hi Nkhosi. Your strength is encouraging. I am trying to get more info about how we can help with your current condition. I see there is a GoFundMe to raise 2M rand. Is that a medical bill or a guarantee of a new set of lungs? We wanna help raise awareness and the funds as well. How can we help exactly”

This has touched Nompilo and she seems to be very appreciative of the act of kindness that Mufasa is offering her.

Nompilo has been a ray of sunlight to everyone on her social media and has kept the positive energy. As she topped the trends list in Swaziland under hashtag #SaveNompilo, people have shown her nothing but love and are pleading for assistance for anyone who may be able to.

This is what they had to say:

Cassper was not without praise as well:

We hope Nompilo will get the help she needs and that the funds will get to the mount needed for the transplant.
