Help Tamsin battle her chemo

Tamsin is a good friend as well as a freelance 'colleague'. We (I write this on behalf of other friends) work together as admins of a facebook group, and are in daily contact. She's funny, and she has amazing peacock-coloured hair! 
But Tamsin's got a huge battle ahead of her. She is facing a year of chemotherapy and has just had an operation to remove cancer from her lymph nodes. As a self employed freelance writer and journalist, Tamsin doesn't have the luxury of sick leave. She is also having to pay for surgery in her native South Africa.
So we are raising money to help cushion the blow of lost earnings that's likely to be ahead of her as she fights this. She can't just give up work, but it's not going to be business as usual. We hope to help her stay afloat, to keep her family supported and, by raising money, help her emotional and mental health as we'll take away that awful worry about where the next paycheque is coming from.
