Michelle's Family Fund
We received a lot of phone calls asking how to donate so we thought we would set up this page for those kind people who wish to help.
Michele has been through what no parent should have to. On the 1st December last year, her world was turned upside down when she learned that her beautiful 19yr old son Blaine was involved in a freak accident while at work. He worked for a turf company and while on a tractor he has somehow come off the back and had little room to move. He didn't survive.
Blaine was a handsome and kind natured man with the world at his feet. He was a passionate Rugby league player and last year made it onto the under 20’s Dragons team. A proud moment for Michee and a testament to the amazing mother she is.
He was a family man, and was not afraid of showing his affection. He adored his girlfriend Victoria. He appreciated everything he got in life, he had a big heart and a smile that would light up a dark room.
He loved his mum Michele very much even doing the housework like folding clothes and helping with some renovations to the front yard – things that we all know not every 19yr old would do. This is what made him so special.
She has been going through a lot of emotional pain right now. Grief is one of those things that takes time.
Her gorgeous daughter Crystal, along with her siblings Jessica and Tom, got in contact with us and told us how she is still struggling with what has happened, and is due to go back to work soon as the bills keep coming in.
With big thanks to CLARENDON HOMES, Kyle and Jackie O have arranged for Michele's mortgage to be paid for for the next 6 months so she can have some more time off work and focus on her and her family for a little bit longer. In addition to this, a further $5000 to finish the renovations that Blaine started before he passed away.
Es tan triste saber que es lo que ocurrió en este accidente, ver lo doloroso que es para la mamá pero lo mejor es saber que ella esta intentado sacar a sus hijos he hijas adelante aún con el peso que lleva encima, la vida a pesar de los desafíos que llevamos cada día son hermosos, lo que vivimos es explorar el alma de la vida. Ver como la gente se ayuda da esperanza y inspira.
I accidentally donated twice but having been in your shoes please keep all the money. Healing time is so important.
Wow so many amazing people! I'm sorry I couldn't donate much more then $10 I'm on a very low budget! But I will donate more soon!
Yes it was a great thing to do. Make the most of it or you will end up like me and a lot of other parents. My daughter was murdered 4 years ago and I still struggle soo much. I had to go back to work as I could not afford to do anything else and in doing that I have not been able to grieve properly. My husband and myself exist but do not live. I wish I could of had at least a couple of months off work just to get my head around what happened and why it happened, something I will never understand. Take this rare opportunity that has been given to you or in years to come it will be like it has just happened and that feeling will never go away. To cope now I work two jobs as it is now the only way to distract my brain as it is too painful to relax even for a few minutes
