Hi Everyone. My name is Melanie Hennessy and I am trying to help raise money for Phil Cox and his family who are going through the most horrendous, heartbreaking time right now.
They have been left with no other option than to sell their home after the father of 2 was told he is now living with an incurable condition of cancer which spreads to the brain and spine - LIMITING HIS LIFE TO JUST MONTHS, OR EVEN WEEKS.

Phil runs his own plumbing and heating business but is unable to continue working and his wife Kerri works full time but they are struggling to continue with their mortgage payments as Kerri now spends all her time caring for her husband and what precious t ime they might have left together.
They have always worked hard to provide for their children and now they face not only loosing their father but their home as well.

Sadly the family don’t have life insurance - meaning Kerri, the childrens mother, could not afford the mortgage payments on her own.
They made the GENUINE  mistake of not getting life insurance as they thought it was part of their home insurance which they had in place.
 
If we could at least keep them their home where they have built so many special, magical moments and memories together then that is something that I know would mean so much to them. 

It will be one less problem to  think about and they can spend what precious time they all have left together not having to worry about loosing their home too.

I really hope that we can all just spare a few pennies to help this gorgeous family.
Life is not to be taken for granted, at times like this we all need to pull together to help each other.

ENJOY LIFE TODAY, YESTERDAY IS GONE AND TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME....XXX

Phil is now in a hospice where his family are spending every single, precious moment with him. Due to the amount of pain he is in the doctors are keeping him sedated most of the time to give him some relief.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated up to now. Hopefully we will raise enough to help his family keep their home so they can spend time remembering all their magical moments and memories they had together xxx

JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW.
Today Phil has been transferred from hospital into a hospice. Every moment and second his family are close by his side and will hold on to every precious moment they have left with him.
Right now losing their home is probably something they don't even care about and I know they would rather lose that than him.
But sadly they will lose both and then what?

His wife will have to try and carry on living life and doing her best for their children whilst probably wanting to give up completely on everything, wondering why they deserved to be dealt such a raw deal.
She will have to sit down and try and help their Son and Daughter understand that Daddy won't ever be coming back again.
How do you do that without crying ?
But not only that they will lose the home where all their treasured moments and memories are too.
They've worked so hard and lived life the right way, for what. To have it all taken away so cruelly.

So pleeeeeease, pleeeeeeease, pleeeeeease can everyone dig deep and help them at least keep their home. If everyone donated £1 then asked everyone they know to do the same then maybe we could at least give them what they deserve.
If ONLY WE COULD BUY A LIFE. xxxxx

Kerri has just updated me with Phils progress this morning. She said "Phil is mainly sleepy his pain is managed and he needs some medication to help relax him regularly due to his legs and chest feeling heavy and to help with Anxiety. His speech is becoming weaker."
Heartbreaking to say the least. ❤

I really love this site, so many gullible people willing to part with their cash, not minding paying the site owners a percentage in the process. The site owners must have raked in millions for themselves on the human suffering section alone. I've definitely got to build a competing website, a lot easier than buying, selling and dealing with being ripped off by customers.

Melanie, I have spoken to an ex services worker who said it would be worth contacting the British legion and SSAFA for help. Do you know if they have done so.
