Jake and Tania for Paige

$76,496 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 1,392 people in 13 months

Jake and Tania need our help.

Over the last 6 weeks Paige has gone from a normal 4 year old to having a tumor the size of a small lemon removed from her brain.

She is terminal and only has a short time left according to her doctors BUT Jake and Tania will not give up on this little fighter!

We originally started with surgery to remove the mass only to be told that it was rare and in operable.

Fast forward 6 weeks and we are here. Jacob and Tania are fighting the fight of their lives and the only way we can help them is financially.

This Gofund me page is helping them with all their expenses over this time as they no longer have an income as holidays ran out weeks ago and government assistance hasn't started.

Anything will help make it easier on them financially xx

Original post:

Since this is being shared i thought id go into a little detail, Paige has had surgery on her brain to remove a tumor the size of a small lemon this week.

It was found on Tuesday and removed on Friday. She has just been taken out of ICU today and she isn't responding very well on her right side,  this isnt to say its permanent but she will be in for alot of rehabilitation.

Paige will need extensive rehab and hospital visits which means that either Jake or Tania are not going to be able to go back to work straight away.This will cause them a little financial hardship.

So whilst we are all relieved that the surgery has gone well so far the hard part now is having time off unpaid in the coming weeks/months.

I'm hoping to raise enough money to take that pressure off them so they can focus on Paige's recovery.

I know they are the type of people to do it on their own, but I want them to know that everyone genuinely means it when they have said they will help in anyway they can.

Scott and I are going to start with $200 to get it going and hopefully even if you can only donate $10 it will all add up.

As the money comes in will go straight to their account, for those of you that don't know me, I'm Jakes eldest sister Innez. X

The team @SeaFM are going to be sore on Friday!!!

The donations are coming in fast and they are pulling for Paige Tomorrow!For every dollar raised, they will pull a sled 1 metre down the beach.

What a massive effort from the Gold Coast community!

We have all been super busy, but every message on the Gofund me page has been read, and we are only a 1/4 of the way through with replies!

On Wednesday I'm going to get Jake or Tania help me get through the next 850 donations and messages to say thankyou!

Please don't be disappointed if we haven't personally said thankyou yet, your thoughts are constantly with Jake and Tania and we will get there!!

Thanks again everyone xx

This is incredible! With the massive support of the Gold Coast Bulletin, SeaFM and EVERYONE who has donated, we might reach our goal!

Yes the goal does sound like a lot. BUT, we are talking about a 2x fulltime income family, who still has the same expenses as they did 4 months ago, when they had a regular income.

Jake and Tania are now relying on the funds from Gofund me to be able to be at home with Paige and give her 24/7 care and build beautiful memories!!

All money raised is making this possible and I'm sure in the coming weeks it will be the start of lots of fun weekends away and a few little holidays!

Rest assure that your donations are going to genuine people who are just trying to buy some time with their little girl and aren't out there living it up buying non essential items!

Thankyou all again!! We couldn't of done this without you all! xx

You helped us reach this amazing amount for Jake and Tania!

It may not have been a dollar value it may have been a share you made and someone else was able to help, but we could not have done this without all your support!!

We have also had many other donations that aren't listed on the Gofund me page and we are forever thankful xx
