Hi everyone, 

Me and my brother Sean are reaching out to the community to collect some funds for our mom Shelley who has recently become seriously ill.  

Three months ago Shelley was diagnosed with an inoperable cancer in her sinuses. It is progressing very fast. Shelley is hanging in there and choosing to ride out this unexpected body journey without going down the chemotherapy route. 

Shelley is a very private person, and it is taking a lot of courage for her to surrender  making  this situation public. We ask that you respect her privacy and not overwhelm her with attention.

She is unable to work or travel in her current condition.  This whole situation has come out of the blue and we really want her to be as comfortable as possible at this time. This is why we are asking for outside help.

Shelley has lived on the Sunshine Coast for several decades, you may know her as that hair-dresser with the healing touch, photographer of buddhas and water lilies, or just as that beautiful local woman riding her bike through Roberts Creek  with a wide open laughter.

Shelley dreams of living on the waterfront or lakeside again, so we are currently putting the call out to rent a place where we can stay and sit and stare out at the ocean or lake view with her.  

Do you know of a waterfront sanctuary on the Sunshine Coast that we can rent out asap for the upcoming fall/winter months? 


We love Shelley so very much and want to spend time with her in the comfort, ease and relaxation of the present moment.

Thanks for reading this and for all your love and support.

Sincerely, Jessica Gabriel & Sean Twohig
