The University of Pretoria student hit by a car in Hatfield on 16 July remains critical.

Adel Cato (20) suffered head injuries and slipped into a coma from the accident.

According to her father Frank Cato, the 20-year old was starting to regain consciousness last month when she had to be transferred from “a rehabilitation centre to intensive care after a pipe used to feed her malfunctioned.

“She was kept there for about a week,” he said

“Fortunately her condition has not worsened.”

He said doctors didn’t know if she had suffered any brain damage because they were waiting for her to completely regain consciousness before they could assess her.

Frank said his family remained hopeful Adel would recover but was concerned about the mounting medical bills.

Adel's Road to Recovery

"Adel was in the prime of her life as a 2nd year varsity student when,on the 16th of July 2018, all of that changed in an instant. Adel was hit by a car which left her in a coma with brain damage. We are now desperate to raise funds firstly, to meet the escalating,ongoing hospital cost as well as making provision for her rehabilitation and treatment thereafter." – A message from Adel Cato's dad.Support Adel by donating here:https://www.backabuddy.co.za/adels-road-to-recovery

He said his medical aid scheme was only willing to pay for part of Adel’s lengthy hospital stay hence the family had established a trust to raise funds to cover the remainder.

“Any form of donation or help is welcome.”
