Help Danika's Family

Danika was a beautiful mother to three gorgeous boys.

Tragically, Danika passed away suddenly after a short illness on 29 November, 2017, just weeks after the premature birth of baby Coen.

She'd been sick with pnumonia, and doctors diagnosed an aggressive stage 4 cancer, just before she passed away.

She leaves behind her heartbroken family, Scott, Leon (5), Xavier (2) and Coen (1 month)
Scotty brought baby Coen home from hospital two days after Danika died.

Scott and the boys now face life without her.

Danika was the most beautiful soul. Caring and empathic to the end. Always concerned about everyone else's wellbeing.

She touched everyone she met, as a compassionate aged care worker, loving mum, brilliant ceramic artist, fiercely loyal friend and loved partner, daughter, sister.

Scott and the boys need to leave their rental property in early January and finding a new home in the local area where there's the support of family and friends is hard because of the shortage of housing.

They have funeral expenses to cover, as well as Christmas and moving and rent costs.

It'd be great to support Scotty and the boys and maybe put a little aside for the boys' future.

Please help if you can.
