A close friend of ours is a single mum with a young daughter and is having brain surgery in January. She just found out before Christmas and has been trying to arrange childcare, as well as her own care, for after hospital. Her recovery will take a few months and she will need 24-hour care for the first few weeks, then some level of ongoing support until she is back on her feet. She may need further treatment depending on biopsy results but hopefully it won't come to that.

Her family and friends will mind her little girl, but they can't cover the full 24-hour care or long term regular support hours that she herself will need. Private home care costs €25 per hour, so she is going to have a lot of unexpected expense. A few of us would  like to try to raise funds to help with her costs. It’s a way to offer some practical help and make her recovery easier.

Thanks so much for all the support so far,
Mandy xx

Thank you all again for your most generous donations. Just to update you - the surgery has been rescheduled for clinical reasons, and will now take place towards the end of the month (provisionally). We will update again closer to the time.
