Last May Nelly, myself and everyone around her received the worst news of our lives..... The horrible C word - Cancer.
She was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that appeared out of nowhere after her furbaby Scrunchy jumped on her boob and discovered "the lump".
It is now September and so far she has been through a fertility cycle and 11 chemo sessions with more to come. Her first 10 chemo sessions she tried wearing the cold cap to save her beautiful long thick hair that she is known for but unfortunately there was too much hair loss and the process became too long and painful. She was doing this in an effort to save her precious hair for her wedding in October which was fully planned over the last 12 months.
In an effort for Nelly and Kevin's (fiance) dream wedding to still go ahead they cancelled their honeymoon to cover some of the wedding costs due to not being able to work as much during her treatments, and at this stage the treatment will be ongoing until the end of the year.
As you could imagine, there's many trips to Adelaide and Kevin is taking off a lot of work time to support her.
Anyway bad news aside..... I would love to help Nelly and Kevin towards the cost of purchasing a real human hair wig. Nelly was quoted $2,680 last week for the wig and an extra $1,000 for the wig to have extensions so the length is somewhat the same as her own hair was.
Nelly has always been a giver, so please anyone who can help my daughter feel and look as beautiful as the person she is on her wedding day, please help. No amount is too small.
