After being cancer free for nearly 2 years, Jo has had a relapse. We don’t want them to worry about money while she goes through treatment

It’s been a big year for Jo and Tim. A beautiful wedding. A crazy honeymoon adventure. New jobs for Tim. Big projects for Jo. They moved house. And, most excitingly they became parents, welcoming their beautiful baby Quinn into the world on the 8th of June.

But now, in the midst of midnight feeds and nappy changes, this little family has been hit with an even bigger challenge.

After being cancer free for nearly two years, Jo has had a relapse. Treatment starts right away and it’s going to last a while.

If you’re lucky enough to have met Jo and Tim, you’ll know that they are the most fun, generous, kind and all-round awesome humans. They’ve been through a world of pain already, and come out the other side with so much love for each other and for life. There’s just something magical about both of them.

Right now they’re mustering all of their courage, and all of their strength to tackle it all again.

Tim bravely said ‘we’ve faced it once before, we can face it again’.

And we all want to do everything we can to help them.

To give them time together. To relieve a little of the stress. To make things easier where we can.

Most importantly we don’t want them to worry about money or work for the next few months.

If you can donate, it’s hugely appreciated. Every little bit helps.

Sending love and thanks to everyone. We know you’ll all be feeling your own hurt and sadness for this beautiful family, so please know that we’re all here for each other xxx

Ps. We’ll also be coordinating meals and anything else they need. So, if you’d like to help in other ways please send an email to and we’ll find ways to put your energy to good use, without overwhelming the little family!

Use of Funds:

All of the money raised will help to cover living expenses for Jo & Tim so that they don't have to worry about work or money, but can focus on treatment and their beautiful baby Quinn.
