United for Ange - for a Mum in Need

Our gorgeous friend Angela has been going through a hell of a time for a long time now, however of late it has been become even more challenging for her.

The last three years has seen this amazing woman go through challenges that most of us won’t in a lifetime. It all started with the breakdown of Ange’s marriage where she was put through a very messy divorce. This fight pushed Ange to the wall emotionally and financially, however her unconditional love for her gorgeous young twin girls and her determination of being a role model to them, saw her rise above all that she was put through.  

Then just when Ange thought everything was slowly settling down she received the devastating news in August 2017 that she had breast cancer. Ange then went through six grueling months of chemotherapy. Since her diagnosis, every single day has been a struggle for Ange. She has and is going through this as a single mother, with little help and no financial support for either her or the girls. Ange has depleted all of her annual, sick and long service leave from having to take time off to deal with the cancer as well as recover after each treatment. Things have been so dire for Ange there have been times when she has had her cancer treatment and then had no other option than to go straight back to work.

 Tomorrow Ange starts her next stage of trying to become cancer free and beat this insidious disease once and for all, when she has her first of two mastectomy operations. This surgery is again putting Ange under enormous financial pressure due to her having to take time off to have the surgery and to recover, time for which she will not be able to work.

Our goal is to raise enough funds to help Ange support herself and her young children and to allow her to have some time off to recover from both this surgery and her next surgery in four months’ time.

For transparency, I am a personal friend of Angela's having become friends through work at Collection House in Brisbane. We have been friends for 11 years.  We both live in Brisbane, Australia. All funds raised will help Angela with her day to day domestic and family expenses for her, as a single mum, along with the unavoidable medical expenses resulting from her cancer treatment.
