Helping Karen

In my 15 years of friendship with Karen I can only describe her as one of the most loving and caring people I have ever known, to which everyone who knows her would also agree.  A devoted wife, and mother to four beautiful daughters, it was a great surprise to learn 3 years ago she had contracted a rare form of cancer called synovial sarcoma.  This woman who had given so much of her time and effort to help so many others was now in great need herself.  

Now, at only 42 years of age and after trying many different forms of treatment her condition has rapidly deteriorated and the cancer has moved into her lungs. However there is hope in a treatment sourced from NZ that has proved to successfuly cure similar cancers in other patients.  The treatment is her last hope, to help her recover and spend many more years as a mother and wife to her family, however the treatment does come at a considerable cost.
 
The donations being requested are to help cover the costs of the treatment but you will also help provide some financial relief to the family and allow her husband to stop having to work himself to the bone everyday in his trade so he can spend some quality time with his wife and care for her.

Karen is a person who has so given so much of herself unselfishingly to helping and aiding others that it seems so little to give back to her.  If you can give then please do and thank you greatly.  If not then that's fine, thank you for taking the time to read this and I only ask if you might be able to please share this with others you know.

Thank you
