Family Support Cancer

Until recently, Jody was an active busy mother of two young girls enjoying life with a loving husband, caring extended family and a wide circle of friends in their close knit community of Warkworth. But as most of us were celebrating Christmas, Jody and Aaron received some devastating news.

A diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma later upgraded to stage 4b means they are now facing challenges they could never have imagined.

While family and friends were quick to offer practical support it soon became apparent that assistance is needed from further afield. A single income family paying market rates for rent, without health or life insurance and faced with daily expenses including added costs associated with her illness, means the financial burden is overwhelming. In addition to this, one of Jody’s single most concerns is that of the girls. She and Aaron are very anxious that their lives run as close to normal as possible. Therefore in order for Aaron to care for Jody and take over the daily routine associated with a pre-schooler and five year old, he has no option other than to take increasing periods of leave.

It is with this in mind that we have set up this fund to kindly ask if in any way you could help, no matter how small, to alleviate some of the pressure enabling Jody to focus her attention on getting well.

Any donations received will be directly used to offset the family’s living costs.
