Jamie has all his life been a fit athletic man that loves his sports, a few weeks ago he was playing football where a simple accident happened and he broke his leg in 3 places. The hospitial told us it was like he had been in a car or motorbike accident it was that damaged, this meant no work, no walking, no weight barring on it for several months, with 12 months of rest and recovery. Including regular Physio appointments.
His beautiful wife Nicole become the sole primary carer of him and their 2 kids. However the unexpected happened and Nicole was diagnosied with Uterus cancer 2 weeks later.
She had been unwell and tired for a number of days but just put it down to caring for Jamie and the kids. When she finally got the time to go to the doctors the news was given, something that none of us expected.
Nicole has already started chemothraphy with every 2nd day she needs to visit the Royal Women's to get her treatment. They have now informed Nicole she needs to have a hysterectomy which means she will be house bound for 6 weeks, no driving, no walking and complete rest.
Now neither of them have a primary carer to help them. I have watched my dearest friends both suffer physical and mentally over the last few weeks. I wanted to give something back to them both as neither of them would ask for anything.
They have a young beautiful family but since this has happened neither of them have been able to work and the growing cost of meds, homecare, and day to day running of a household have increased.
I would like to help raise some money for there beautiful family to take care of some of the stress.

These amazing people need all the support and love in the world.
