Nathans whole life is footy. This young athlete with a bright future, now has a sickening disease that doesn’t discrimenate. Nathan and his loving family were told weeks before Christmas that he had developed Leukemia. As you can imagine this is an extremely hard time for all the family especially Nathan and his parents.
If you know Michael and Lisa you would know them as kind, generous, loving and wise. Over the last 6 years I have seen numerous people cared for under their roof. I have witnessed many people influenced by their wisdom and I have seen lives changed by the pure love expressed by this family to others. They are a family that is always giving and willing to help others never asking anything in return. I would love to help this family now when they need it most and ask you to help also.
Michael is self employed, The bread winner for his family now that Lisa has become Nathans full time career. For Michael to take a few days off each week would financially strain this beautiful family. As we understand the family doesn’t fit the criteria set by government for financial assistance. The help received from charities is a blessing but doesn’t cover the business costs. Having a salary or wage position enables people to access sick leave/ compassionate leave/ personal leave, unfortunately being self employed has no cover. Nathan needs to stay within 15 mins from the treating hospital. Michael has spent many nights on a couch next to Nathans bed to get some sleep before he needs to get up at 5 am to get to his first job for the day. Michael and Lisa would like to see a charity started to assist families who are self employed and in similar situations.
I think it would be absolutely fantastic to show nathan the same spirit he gave in that footy game. No one should be left alone to endure hard trials by themselves. If you are able to help with a gift even if its small please donate to this great cause. The family has asked if you could please keep phone calls to a minimum but feel free to write some words of inspiration. Bless you and thanks.
