Supporting Lucy McAleer

It is with heaviest of hearts, that we share this story on behalf of our beautiful Lucy McAleer.
Lucy turned 8 years on July 13th and on July 16th, she was diagnosed with DIPG. DIPG is a rare and terminal brain cancer, that is diagnosed in just 2 Victorian children per year, and up to 20 Australian wide each year.

Whilst we are hopeful that her upcoming radiotherapy provides her with the gift of time, there is no cure at this time.

Lucy is the beautiful daughter or Nicole and Brian McAleer.
She is the caring and amazing big sister to Olivia (6) and Amelia (2).
She is the loving great granddaughter of Vern.
She is the celebrated granddaughter of Danny, Kathleen, Joyce and Brian.
She is the fabulous niece of to her many uncles and aunts.
She is very much loved by her 15 awesome cousins.
She is a loyal friend.
She is in grade two at Mount Evelyn Primary School.
She loves green sea turtles.
She loves Harry Potter and is old enough to watch the third movie now.
This sweet girls leaves beautiful notes all over the house for her family to find. A note on the front door reminds people not to ring the bell, as the baby is sleeping.

Most of all she is so loved, and she loves her family, friends and life with all her heart.

At this time, it is our absolute priority to help provide Lucy and her family with as many beautiful moments and memories as possible.
We can do this by providing financial support, that allows Lucy, Brian, Nicole, Olivia and Amelia to spend their precious time together,
doing what they love without the worry of financial hardship.

We understand times are tough, but if you could take a moment to help Lucy, we assure you it will be a gift of love and you will be a part of
her story. On behalf of Lucy’s loving family, we thank you for your support and love. We encourage you to learn about DIPG, hug your children, keep Lucy in your prayers and share this post.

Thank you for your wonderful support.

Lucy's proud and loving family.
