Benji's Big Battle

52082046_1603430765376225_r.jpegThis is Beautiful little Benji he is 2 in November, the youngest of the Kentwell's.
Benjamin lives on Christmas Island with his Mum Sarah, Dad Stephen and two older sisters Eliza and Lara. They went on a short work trip to Perth and that's when their lives turned upside down. After a quick trip to the GP they received a call back to go to hospital immediately, little bubbly Ben was diagnosed with Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia (AMKL) which is a rare life-threatening leukemia. 

Benji is receiving amazing care at Perth Children's Hospital. 

“This is every parent’s worst nightmare! We wanted to rally our community to show Benji and his family they are not fighting alone.  With the pandemic and WA border closure it has made it  very difficult for family to get into Perth to help support Stephen and Sarah.  Thankfully they have some amazing friends who have shown wonderful support whilst family try to get into WA. 
What makes this all a little bit harder is that they can not even go back to their Island Home, where their life is , where their work is , where all their belongings are we pray and hope that one day they can return to the little slice of paradise they call home.

Benji has shown such strength so far, he is only at the start of this battle but he is a tough little boy who CAN fight this!!!

Any donations we receive will help cover medical bills and expenses that they will incur through this process.
