Unable to work for the past year and a half due to illness.
Husband Andrew is full time carer.

As it took a lot of courage for Rachel and Andrew to ask for help, we decided that a go fund me would help Rachel and her family through this difficult time.
This will help fund Rachel through treatment and out of pocket expenses for medication not covered by medicare .
As her friends we are please asking for your help.
Anything helps even the smallest amount all add up.
Even if you are unable to donate could you please take a second and share this on your facebook page/ email.

The past four years have been intense and hard on the whole family, back and forth to doctors appointments trying to get answers and a diagnosis.
The treatment is ongoing and will keep you all updated on rachels progress.

On the behalf of Rachel and her family, we would like to thank you in advance for making a difference to their lives.

Update 7

So here's the update on our Wa medical system, as Rachel braces to try the system one more time, even though she's been going through it for several years!
As you know, since local MP Tony Buti had stepped in and got the Heath Minister involved it all started looking promising!
Rachel recieved an appointment overnight after waiting a year for the refferal appointment to refer her back to a neurologist after being rudely diagnosed by Dr. Christopher Lind as inoperable.
Rachel was now feeling optimistic with the pressure of the Mp's on the local nueroligist Dr. Carolyn Orr, but as mentioned before in the last post.
She sat rachel down with the refferal in hand saying,
"lets start from the beginning"
So after a lengthy meet and greet, Dr. Carolyn Orr recommended that she admit Rachel to Perth Royal Hospital on the 22nd July 2018 for further Mri scans mainly on the spine and brain areas and would be in hospital for at least 3 days to a week, which was going to be confirmed via a phone call prior to this date, as Rachel had to arrange for someone to mind the kids over this period as she wanted her husband whom is her carer to be by her side.
Rachel didn't recieve any calls leading upto to 22nd July and was feeling very disappointed within the system again! Rachel finally recieved a call on the 24th saying that they have reserved a bed and to head in, this was giving Rachel and her family no time at all to get prepared and to replan, since not being given any notice and already having someone organised for the 22nd, which fell through.
Rachel said she could come in within the next couple of days and the receptionist at Royal Perth Hospital said she'll have to confirm this with Dr. Carolyn Orr and check on availability, but never got back to Rachel.
The following day Dr. Carolyn Orr called Rachel to book in another appointment this coming Friday to dicuss where and which way to go from here! There was even speculation about being admitted sometime in September as Dr. Carolyn Orr works one month on and one off at Perth Royal Hospital.
So Rachel is feeling pretty let down from the system once again, but is finding the strength to head in on Friday to see what the Wa medical system has planned for her next!
Is it just all a waste of time and money?
Heres the post from the 6th July:
