Give "Carol" a Christmas!

Carol, my mum (grandma) who raised me from 8months old isn't your regular grandma She's a survivor! She fought aggressive breast cancer 15 years ago which resulted in a double mastectomy. October 2016 she was diagnosed her second aggressive cancer lymphoma and underwent 7 months of intensive chemotherapy. She entered remission and was so happy to be alive and have her life back after being unwell for so long. Unfortunately just 7 weeks later she had a fall which injured her back but just to turn her world upside down yet again the scans & tests done for her back injury became worse when they discovered her cancer had come back again aswell. YES! THATS RIGHT HER 3RD diagnosed stage 4 cancer. Unfortunately being so unresponsive to intensive chemotherapy she wasn't left with to many options for treatment. By miracle chance she qualified for a worldwide cancer drug trial and began experimental treatment in august. She has a lot of bad days being unwell physically beyond belief and emotionally as well but hangs on to hope of a better day in the not so distant future.


This may very well be her last Christmas with her family and we were all determined to make the most of it. Although Christmas isn't about presents, She had been saving for quite a while so she was able to buy everyone a meaningful gift. However yesterday all her hopes of that were squashed when some disgusting excuse for a human STOLE HER HANDBAG as she loaded her few shopping bags into the boot of the car... in a moment everything GONE! Handbag, wallet, ID, Medicare cards, mobile phone, LIFE SAVING MEDICATIONS, $ cash, small coin collection, prescription glasses, perfume etc.

The real tragedy in all this is not the money lost so to speak, it's the accumulation of cost to replace it all, the loss of hope in humanity that someone would do that to her, but also the sadness at going to the shop was the only sense of independence and normal life she had part from hospital appointments now she doesn't even feel safe enough to do that. Please help me try to restore her faith in humanity again. X
