Support a Mother's final wish to have one final holiday with her children and grandchildren
Jo is a fighter
In 2012 she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, which spread to her arm. We counted our blessings and she beat that cancer and as a family we were so grateful. We celebrated Jo's desire to live life to the fullest was fanned in to flame.
Come Feb 2017 Jo had to hear for the 2nd time in her life, that she was diagnosed with cancer, but this time in her abdomen and unfortunately it was the news we didn't want to hear, that it was terminal.
Just over a year now and her cancer has spread, grown and multiplied to the point where it is causing a bowel obstruction and causing disfunction in her digestive track. She had life threating surgery and we are just thankful she made it out alive. 2 weeks later after surgery the family have now been advised that she only has weeks to live. This is heartbreaking for the family and at this point of time we are trying to be strong, support her and her 2 kids and grandkids.
Jo's desire to live life to the fullest is still burning bright and has wished to have one final holiday with her children and grandchildren. We want to make this happen.
The funds will be used for Jo, her 2 kids and their partners and her 3 grandkids to go on a little holiday to Auckland. It will pay for flights, accommodation, rental car and attractions e.g. Rainbows end, Kelly Tarlton.
