Help Rachelle’s family make memories

By now most of you reading this are aware of Rachelle and Keir's story.  For those that don't know, Rachelle was diagnosed with cervical cancer and in a whirlwind few months has undergone extensive treatment and it was cured. This was unexpected and unfortunately done too late. Unfortunately they recently had the devastating news that the cancer had spread to her lungs and other places and is now terminal.  

A lot of you had already donated and the kindness shown was overwhelming. For reasons right to herself Rachelle cancelled the go fund me that was set up for treatment. We can only imagine how overwhelming it must have been and this has been set up again simply because what has become apparent is people still want to donate to help the children navigate this difficult and confusing time. 

Rachelle is only 33 and has two daughters aged 5 and 9 and they are aware of the situation. Whilst we can't do anything about the cancer, anything we can do to help make this time easier is important. I know the last fundraiser which Rachelle and Keir refunded was overwhelming to them but they have given their blessing as at the heart of this is the girls. They are keen to keep as much normality as possible for Willow and Everly but if they could use this time to make special memories, then it would be lovely if they did not need to think about money. 

Rachelle also feels it is important that those of us who can donate blood, do so. Cancer patients often need blood transfusions and so you can help others in this way.
