For all those that may have known the gregarious, funny, LOVING "Curly" Prendergast, you will know that his GREATEST achievement, aside from being an awesome fisherman, was meeting his beautiful wife Jodie, and having their 5 GORGEOUS babies, Jordy, Jacinta, Lexi, Lily and beautiful little Seth. Together Jodes and Curly were creating their perfect lives together, taking their beautiful babies on never ending adventures, and buying their first house. But god had other plans. When little Seth, the youngest of the Prendergast babies, was just 9 MONTHS OLD, Curly was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. He didn't have Months left, he had just a matter of WEEKS. So with a new born baby and 4 beautiful girls to take care of, Jodie and Curly had to face the ULTIMATE fear of any person imaginable. They had to start planning her husbands, the children's fathers funeral. Curly died just 8 WEEKS after his diagnosis. He was JUST 35 years old.
Jodie has faught SO SO HARD, these past 5and 1/2 years to keep the kids together, following Curlys death. Let alone still trying to pay for the mortgage, paying for schools, sports, school excursions and EVERYTHING in between. With NO other financial assistance, she has worked up to 3 jobs at a time just to keep the food on the table for her 5 beautiful, but growing babies. And while Jodie has done an EXCEPTIONALLY FANTASTIC job, ALL by herself, last week this AMAZING family was struck ANOTHER serious blow. Jodie's 7 seater Hyundai IMAX, car engine BLEW UP. She has been advised that this will cost IN EXCESS Of $12000 to fix. But Jodie is a single mum with 5 children to look after. She doesn't have this kind of money. So SHE NEEDS OUR HELP!!!!!! She NEEDS a Car to get around in, to get to work, to get her babies to school, to work, to sport, and every where else in between.
And for those of you that don't know this AMAZING and INSPIRING family, Jodie and the kids live in a regional area, meaning there are NO busses, on a regular route to get them anywhere. So I ask that you PLEASE HELP ME, HELP THIS AMAZING FAMILY, and GET THEM A CAR!!!!!!! We are looking at raising AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE to get Jodes just a good little run about, until we can work out how the Hyundai will be afforded to get fixed. But we also NEED to ensure that she is not stuck with a bomb, as she just doesn't have the spare funds to keep fixing it. EVERY LITTLE BIT WILL HELP!!!! This beautiful family have been through enough, so let's ALL band together and take the stress of Jodes so she can keep doing what she has always done best. Looking after those gorgeous kids. and working to provide them with the BEST possible future, all by herself. I LOVE YOU JODES ❤️❤️
