Do you have a favourite Aunt? Or just an amazing relative who is inspiring, gifted, thoughtful, interesting and generous? The world is simply a better place because they are in it. Well that is my Aunt.
She was a teacher, she is a gifted artist (right now I can only find the cover of an old children's book she illustrated) and a very giving member of the community having been involved with the church for many years.
Unfortunately my wonderful Aunt was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer. The doctors somehow had missed it in the check ups and it spread to 20 lymph nodes. She has just come out hospital but they have told her they could not get it all. There are six they could not get and now she has to have chemo.
Whilst my family is trying to do all we can, she lives 30hours away in a country area. She is not well set up financially - on the pension, no private healthcare and nothing to sell. We need to raise some fund to go towards her treaments and a cleaner to come into her little apartment once a week as she is too ill to clean. She also has to travel to the nearest hospital for chemo and cannot afford to stay at Ronald McDonald House or Rotary whilst she gets her treament.
So, if you want to give to a lady who has done nothing but make the world a better place with her art, her thoughtfulness and all the community projects she has done....now is your opportunity to be an angel.
Thank you so much x
