My name is Renae Hunter and this isn't easy for me to write or do but I'm in desperate need of your help. I'm 32 years old and 6 weeks ago I became a widow with 6 children and one on the way.
My husband passed away while I layed next to him holding his hand, he passed away from cancer. He had Metastatic Melanoma stage 5. His dying wish was to make me his wife and 3 days before he passed that's what he did. We had a lovely ceremony in front of close family and friends outside the hospice where he was staying. I was so happy to be finally marrying the love of my life but so sad and broken at the same time knowing we will never get to grow old together. And he will not see our children grow up.
We were not expecting to have a 7th child we had said no more so after our son was born 11 months ago I had a tubal ligation (tubes cut and tied) but 5 months after the procedure I found out that we were expecting another baby. Saying we were shocked is an understatement. My husband faught with everything he had to fight this horrible disease but it wasn't meant to be.
We were married on the Saturday and He passed away on the Tuesday morning. From that day on my life has been a mess. I'm so lost, lonely and heart broken, the children are miserable, our family has been broken into a million pieces, our lives will never be the same again. I'm left to raise our children alone and give birth to our son alone. I honestly don't know how I'm going to get through this...
Since his passing and paying for his cremation and all the other expenses that have come up I'm finding it very difficult to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. Living in Darwin is very expensive and paying for rent for a house to fit us all in is a challenge in itself. Not to mention power bills, food, fixing my old busted up car, birthdays, christmas and the normal things you need for a new baby. It's all getting out of control.
Im making this campaign to ask for help. Something I would never normally do. But this is for my children not just me and I feel I need to do this or I don't know where we would end up in a couple of months time.If you could possibly help out with a small donation it would mean the world to me and my children. Please help me help my family
