7 short years a go my step dad, Dave, was watching my little brother's rugby game when he started to feel ill and walked over to the on field ambulance. This is what saved his life. Dave was having a brain aneurysm causing a bleed inside his brain. With fast thinking he was rushed right in and then this is when our families lives changed forever. After surgery, life support, ICU stay, Rehabilitation treatment, learning all the basics all over again Dave came home just before Christmas 2011. He used to be such an athletic, Hard working father, supporting his family and is now permanently disabled. It has been a long road with heavy finances and now my mother after 7 years is finally asking for help! After multiple car repairs, and only having the invalids benefit she has no way to purchase a reliable replacement vehicle. Let alone be accepted by any finance company due to her not being able to work as now she is his full time carer. That is what this Give A Little Page is being created for. They need a vehicle as they live over 40 kms to the hospital, 32km to their GP doctor where there is regular appointments. So they REALLY need your help! Any little bit you can give to help support my mother and step dad through this time would be extremely appreciated.

Use of Funds:

The money will go towards purchasing a reliable vehicle. The value of the vehicle will depend on funds raised. If there is not enough donated to help purchase a vehicle then it will go on the old car repair bills shes having to find a way to pay.
