Thank you for stopping by to Support Sam, Rachel and Frankie!

Recently we found out that Sam, has developed Stage IV Colorectal Cancer with a number of secondary metastasis.

At 33 years old, this has come as a major shock to our family, especially to Samuel and Rachel as they begin growing a future and a family with little daughter Frankie.

As we navigate through this time as a family, we would really appriciate your help to ensure that Sam has access to not only the greatest care possible, but also to ensure that the impact on their lives is kept to a minimum and is as manageable as possible.

So far, Sam has already undergone surgery to ensure that he is in the best place possible to commence the long and arduous journey of extensive chemotherapy.

Once the chemotherapy has run its cycle there is then the prospect of him needing a number of major invasive surgical procedures to give him the greatest opportunities to overcome this disease.
 
Ultimately we need access to these funds as soon as possible.

Sam is self employed and over recent years has built a successful and growing business while Rachel has also been attending University studying in areas of Social Work. Together they have been working toward a successful future for their family.

There is no doubt that this time will have an impact on their immediate plans for the future.

Since his diagnosis and initial surgery, Sams ability to continue working efficiently has understandably suffered and the emotional and financial stress that will inevitably result will add further complications to an already difficult and confronting situation. Rachel has already had to defer her studies to be available for Sam and Frankie.

At this time, we are looking to get the best possible care for Sam and we've all been chipping in as much as we can. But with the merry-go-round of medical expenses related to his diagnosis, we are only at the beginning of a long process and this is where we need your help!

Your generosity will help them with;
- Specialist Bills
- Medical Procedures
- Medications
- Ongoing Hospital Care
- Referrals for Second Opinions
- Ongoing Nutritional Supplements and Care

We all thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for any support that you can provide to Sam, Rachel and Frankie.

They have a big journey ahead and if we can assist with lightening the load for our beautiful Sam and his amazing girls you will have earned our eternal thanks. 

Please Share our Story to ensure that Sam's Care is Guaranteed. It is our pledge to “donate” any unused funds to another worthy cause or someone in similar circumstances.

Our minimum amount is $20,000 but estimate that over the next year their family will require much more than this.

With Love and Many Thanks.
