Amy's Got This!

Please help Amy and her beautiful family!

On Thursday the 18th of June 2020, my best mate Amy had a migraine.  She was home with her husband Jesse and two young children, taking some much deserved annual leave from her job as a community welfare worker. 

Amy spent most of the day in bed, trying to get over her illness, however what we didn't realize at the time was that Amy was in the early stages of having a massive stroke.  Jesse soon realized that Amy's condition was worsening and called an ambulance to come and help, they still didn't quite know what was happening, but by the end of that night, Amy was in the Monash Hospital in Melbourne fighting for her life.  


Amy is my colleague, my best friend and seriously the best person that I know.  She is also a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin.  She is a helper, a hard worker and a compassionate soul.  Just 6 months ago, Amy raised over $10,000 and shaved off all of her hair for the Lung Foundation which is a charity close to her heart.  She worked hard and dedicated her time to the cause for months before the night she ceremoniously shaved her head.  She totally rocked it too!


Now we need to pay it back to Amy and her family.  It's time to help the helper and ensure that her family are well supported and taken care of while she continues to recover.  Amy, like most young parents has not had the time to accumulate masses of annual and sick leave, she currently on has a few weeks available and once this is used up, things are going to get very tight.  We need to raise the funds to cover petrol costs to and from Melbourne, mortgage repayments, childcare bills, utility bills and all of the other things that are going to pop up in the coming weeks and months.  

So I ask that you dig deep and donate what you can.  Amy is the girl who would give all that she has to support someone in need, she will go above and beyond to make someone else's day better if she can.  She is one in a million and she needs us now!!!
