The Wilson's

Hi everyone!

My name is Silka and I am from Perth, Western Australia and I am a family friend of the Wilsons, as some of you are aware by now, the Wilson’s have recently been informed of some absolutely devastating news. Brendan was ticking along just like usual being the awesome husband and father that he is working hard and looking after the family on a FIFO schedule. He had been struggling with minor back pains for a while but the day he picked Raven up (40kg German Shepherd) Brendan felt severe sharp lower back pain. Brendan booked an appointment at his GP with what he thought was possibly a slipped disk or another lipoma pinching his nerve, but the Dr wanted to investigate further not believing that could be the cause for so much pain. After doing an x-ray & CT scan Brendan was given the news that he had a couple of tumours on his spine & was to head straight to the hospital. After further blood tests, CT scan, MRI scans, biopsies, PET scan & being bed ridden for a bit it’s been confirmed he has three fractures down his spine due to having stage 4 Follicular Lymphoma Cancer (which is treatable but not curable) that has weakened his back in these three areas & his pelvic area. Within 2 weeks the Wilsons lives have been turned upside down and Brendan has currently received his first round of R-CHOP chemotherapy. As many people are not too familiar of the ins and outs of chemotherapy and the 21-day cycle, the next five months are going to be very hard for the Wilsons household as Brendan will becoming home and he will not have an immune system as a result of chemotherapy and cannot afford to get sick which will be very hard with two young children in the house. I have started this go fund me page to help with the financial pressure as they are a beautiful young family with a mortgage and bills.The funds will be transferred to the Wilsons 7 days after the donation is made via a stripe account. I encourage every one to donate to this young family to provide some assistance in this very difficult time.
