Grab your tissues... Christmas Wish with Keenan Naidoo and Greg & Lucky
182 days ago
947 Xmas Wish is back, and for 6 incredible days Greg & Lucky will touch the lives of people across Joburg by giving them a boost, a break, and a big reason to smile. After all, one big break is all it takes to make life worth loving.
Keenan Moodley is 6 years old, and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He has had to endure several operations since he was just 2 years old. Just last year, he had a major operation to help him walk using a walker.
The operation had to be done by specialists in Cape Town so he and his mother, Samone Moodley, had to stay in the Mother City for a month. Unfortunately, Samone had to resign from her Joburg-based job in order to be in Cape Town with her son.
It took months before Samone found could find a new job. In the midst of all of this, Keenan’s father lost his job, making life incredibly difficult for Keenan, his 13-year-old sister, and his 9-year-old brother.
Just a few days ago, on 11 December, Keenan had an appointment with one of his specialists who recommended that he get a set of splints to help him walk even better.
The splints cost R25,000, and he would need to attend physiotherapy for a year – which would cost an additional R12,000.
Samone has tried to raise funds for Keenan’s needs, but her efforts have been unsuccessful.
When we heard about Keenan Naidoo's story, we knew that we had to assist in some way.
Greg & Lucky chatted to our friends over at Monte Casino and asked them if they would be willing to help Keenan #LevelUp.
This was one of the most touching moments we've had on the #947ChristmasWish with Greg & Lucky...
