Let's beat breast cancer for Jolanda

Just before last Christmas our dear Jolanda, receptionist extraordinaire/admin assistant went for a routine breast screen on her lunch break in centre in the city. 

A lump was found in her breast.

After a lumpectomy and removal of ten lymph nodes it was discovered four contained cancer.  It wasn't the best Christmas present one would ask for. 

However, Jolanda was a trooper and remained positive.

She is a bubbly, helpful and kind person who will do anything for anyone.  She is humble, funny, God-loving and witty and we at the Anglican Church and Anglicare love her dearly.

Jolanda is special because of her heart which is bursting with love for all people.  She is married to Jacques (who works in PNG - FIFO) and loving mother of three boys.

Today, 24 January 2020 Jolanda begins chemo (treatment is for 12 months) and she will later need radiation treatment too.

In the last few years Jolanda lost her dear dad and her younger sister (South Africa) and made the trip home to attend both funerals – which was a huge financial burden.  She is the carer of her two granddaughters who are under two years of age and the light of her life.

Jolanda has opened her home to friends and family and is prominent volunteer with her local church.  She has incredible and deep Christian faith, has a beautiful disposition and intends to fight and face this new obstacle in her life head on.

With additional costs including specialist appointments, medication, purchase of wigs/scarves, car parking fees, time off work etc it would be amazing if we could bless Jolanda and her family for the weeks and months ahead.

Please help by donating a little something to make an incredible difference.

Any assistance will be deeply appreciated.
