Allow Stace the dream of taking her family on holiday, and to take care of the most important people in her life.

Main image

Stacey is 39 years young, fit, happily married and mother to five gorgeous children.

Out of the blue on Friday 23rd November the Duckmanton's were hit with very heartbreaking news- Stace was diagnosed with bowel cancer which has spread to her liver and spine. There is no cure -there is only treatment to help buy time and keep Stace around a bit longer to make precious memories with her family and friends.

Stace and Ducky (Jeremy) have 5 beautiful children who are understandably broken by this news, Jack - 15 , Isla - 13, Allie - 12, Gabbie - nearly 5, and Walter - 2.

Aside from being super busy with the children, they run two busy dairy farms and are also actively involved in many community and farming groups.

Stace is a much loved wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandaughter, aunty, and friend to many - she lights up any room she walks in to, she is just an all round beautiful person who deserves to live the life she has left to its full potential.

I have set up this page as i know one of Stace's wishes is to take her family on a holiday, where they can make precious memories that will live on forever. If we can give to them this one opportunity it would be amazing and so well deserved.

Having 5 children at the best of times is very busy and im sure so much fun, but Stace's number one worry, is her children so if we can help towards an au pair/nanny to help keep the childrens' lives as normal as possible i know this would mean the world to Stace this will also allow Ducky to spend as much time as possible caring for Stace.

Anyone who knows Ducky and Stace know just how much family means to them, they are the ones who are always giving to others, and now its our turn to take care and give to them during this horrible time.

Use of Funds:

Go towards a family holiday for the Duckmantons, and also towards a nanny for the care of the children.

I want to do all i can to help Stace and her beautiful family enjoy all the time they have left together
