Helping Hand for Sarah‘s Recovery

The Shepparton Tait Family's life changed on Monday evening the 2nd of November 2020. Family pool fun turned into tragedy when 34 year old Sarah fractured her neck in two places after diving into their pool. 

Nine year old Jesse realized mum was in trouble and sprung into action to rescue his lifeless mum from the bottom of the pool. As a result of watching many episodes of Bondi Rescue, luckily Jesse knew what to do and managed to bring his mum to the surface. Sarah was airlifted to The Alfred for emergency surgery .She is currently rehabilitating at The Royal Talbot in Kew Melbourne where she will most likely spend the next six to eight months undergoing extensive rehab.

A local family with young children Sarah has been a valued long serving employee of Mercy Health in Shepparton  for many years. As her friends and colleagues we want to ease the financial burden for this wonderful young family who have many many challenges ahead. 

Sarah and husband Warren have two children Jesse aged 9 and Hailey aged 6 who attend Shepparton East Primary School.

All proceeds will go directly to the Tait family. Please help if you can and any donation is greatly appreciated.  Please share this link within your networks.
