Fundraising - Erin Barrett

Over a year ago, Erin and her family were hit hard when her husband was diagnosed for the second time with a very serious form of cancer. The resulting surgeries, intensive treatments and the nature of his condition have rendered him unable to work. His battle with cancer is ongoing.  He will continue to require regular treatments and care in the medium term.

During his treatment, Erin has been caring for her husband, raising their daughter, travelling with her husband for treatments and working hard to maintain her job with the federal government. It has been a very hard road that has exhausted the family's financial resources.

A few days ago, things went from bad to worse when Erin was in a serious car accident resulting in a critical back injury. After successfully having surgery this week to have a metal rod placed in her back, she is stable and starting what her friends and colleagues hope will be a full recovery.

Erin and her family URGENTLY require financial assistance to assist with:
• Medical expenses
• Medical travel expenses
• Childcare assistance
• Home care assistance
• Food and meal preparation
• Living Expenses

If this story has touched you at all it is our hope that you will contribute even a little bit to help Erin and her family get through this very difficult time. Our goal is to alleviate as much financial stress on the family as possible so they can focus on healing.
