Where do i begin.... My life changed almost two years ago when i moved to a new neighborhood with my partner Emma, to give my kids a better life, little did i know i was giving them the best life possible.  Warren and Rebecca Bennison were my new next door neighbors. We had an immediate bond with both of them and their two daughters Emily and Grace.  Over the next couple of months our friendship grew stronger and stronger... one of those friendships you only get once in a lifetime. Our kids shared sleepovers and birthdays, we shared nights out partying and carrying on like idiots (That's me creeping in the background), they became our best friends.  Warren is your typical hard working dad. He works 5 days a week in sales and kicks arse in everything he puts his mind too. Rebecca is a hard working mum with a "go get em" attitude. She was working  really hard to make business partner for her own store whilst raising two angels at the same time. All that changed last year, just before Xmas,  when Rebecca was diagnosed with cancer. Not just one tumor.... seven. In her skull, in her back and  near her spine. The Bennision's life was turned upside down.... and so was everybody who loves them. Now the Bennison's have faced their fair share of hurdles since the diagnoses. Financial the family has been strained because Rebecca was finally able to buy into her partnership (One week before the diagnoses)  but because the role was so new, paid leave was never really an option. With Emily starting high school the next year, that meant all new school supplies and uniforms were required. And of course running a household isn't cheap, especially on one income. Rebecca is a fighter. She was seeing doctors regularly and constantly having scans or blood tests. She spent most of her days traveling to medical center or hospitals. Warren and Rebecca have tackled this head on by checking out the latest cutting edge medical researches through to the ancient medicines and remedies. Changing diets and lifestyle choices, all in aid to fighting this disease.  She's been on so many medications such as Immuno, Chemo and Steroids (just to name a few). We had a few wins along the way, with shrinkages of  tumors and some disappearing all together, and also some hurdles but we always kept hope. Unfortunately Rebecca had to go to hospital on Monday 26th March 2018 when a headache she was having wasn't feeling right. She been there ever since. We've visited her in the hospital and all we kept seeing was the fighter in her, not giving up. She even managed to get a day pass so our families could spend Easter Sunday together. Our next goal is to get her home before her birthday on Friday 6th April. We all just want Rebecca to healthy and to come home and be with all of us. Now it was at the hospital, talking to Warren that I realised financial they are in desperate times. Credit card companies are harassing them to pay overdue cards and as you are probably aware, quiet relentless. As I gave Warren a comforting hug he told me he doesn't even have enough money for a funeral, if needed. Finacially they are at apoint of no return. We'd do anything for the Bennison Family including watching their kids, mowing their lawns, vacuuming their house, washing the dishes and doing the laundry.  He is the best example of a human being i know and he is struggling to just deal with day to day, but he needs to be strong for his wife and his two girls and i will always stand by him. Apart from doing physical task for them, i asked myself what i can do financially? Now if i could give him the money i would in a heartbeat..  but I'm not in a position to do that, So this is the next best thing i can do for them. In this moment of time, The Bennison's need all the love and all the support they can get, please... Every donation is appreciated.  I'm not a religious man, but even I am praying for a miracle. - Colin Tache -

Sorry for the lack of updates... So shes home...YAY. Rebecca is comfortable, surround by those who love her. She is a billion times better/happier than when she was stuck in hospital, but the fights not done yet. Her legs arent what they used to be but she has a wheelchair for mobility,. Her spirits are high with the love her friends and family have surrounded her with. Than you everyone.
