Dans fight against Leukemia

We are fundraising on behalf of our brother in law Dan and sister Kristy & their beautiful family (Haley 5, Imogen 3 & Eddie 1).
Their world has just been rocked with some terrible news as Dan has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.

He was admitted to the RBWH on Monday 23rd April & doctors have advised he will not be coming home for at least a few months.  Dan had his first round of chemotherapy on Thursday 26th and this will continue daily for the time being. Doctors are very positive that he will respond to treatment and they have a 60-70% success rate - which is fantastic news!

He went to the GP after a few unusual bruises and a sore jaw. He had a full blood test done only 5 months ago and was a picture of health. Today he is neutropenic and was given platelets within 6 hours of admission.

This news comes just 12 months after Kristy was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer & underwent intensive chemo & radiation at the RBWH. She has thankfully made a recovery but has been sent into early menopause due to treatment. The family moved from Mackay to Brisbane for her treatment & they have only just managed to get back on their feet, settling in Beachmere.  

Kristy is a full time mum to these beautiful kids and as Dan will be unable to work for the unforeseeable future - times are set to get very tough for them. We are hoping to raise some money to help keep them afloat during this time. The mortgage and bills will still need to be paid as well as the cost of travel to and from the hospital & parking.

Thank you for taking the time to read this family’s story and please know that we would be forever grateful for any donation that you could offer... No matter how small! 

We will all be hoping and praying for a speedy recovery for Dan - so they can get back to enjoying time as a family at home. ❤️
