Spread a little love, helping a young family navigate through life at this challenging time.
Loretta is a young mum, who alongside her husband Mark, is raising two adorable pre-schoolers, Charlie and Annabelle.
In April 2018, Loretta was diagnosed with a severe brain tumour, and the rest of the year has been filled with extensive surgeries, medical treatments and continuous hospital and specialist visits. The next medical option available for Loretta is extremely expensive, and requires them to privately fund the treatment themselves. (Added 18.12.18, Despite the Doctors initial comments that this treatment was unlikely to be covered (which is when this page was set up), their insurance company did in fact grant approval just a few days ago. Loretta is currently looking at options around treatments only available offshore but we are all hoping and praying that this treatment is effective.)
As their friends and extended family we want to gather around this beautiful family, and shoulder some of the financial costs for them. It goes without saying that in these situations, pressure arrives on every front and in working to aleviate some of their additional costs, it is incredibly helpful and appreciated. Every financial gift counts no matter how big or small.
Mark and Loretta will be using funds raised for any area of financial need and it will also allow them to make decisions and pursue options regarding relocation, loss of income and other major aspects of life that are impacted during this upheaval.
Mark and Loretta wish to express their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed. The generosity is truely overwhelming at times and reading through the messages of support gives them immense encouragment.
