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.

Please share... The kids will appreciate it, Rachel's kids have been so strong through this battle of trying to get the help required for their loving mum But the kids aren't able to enjoy life with mum, as Rachel has been suffering from chronic symptoms caused by her pineal cystic tumor, as well as suffering from chronic cellulitise and also recently being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The kids constantly ask the question of when will mum be better, why can't mum have the surgery tomorrow, why won't the government help, why is it that much, why did mum have to get sick, etc, etc.... Even though there is a chance of being able to be that energetic mum again for the kids after surgery with Dr Charlie Teo, once Rachel has been able to fundraise the $100k to get the surgery! This wont fix Rachel fully, because of her other diagnosis like fibromyalgia, etc, but it will give her some quality of life back again to enjoy life with her children! Rachel's husband tries to keep the kids active and as fun as possible, but you can see the hurt in the kids as their Mum desperately lays in bed, enduring symptoms like: - memory loss - blurred vision - slurred speach - chronic migraines - light sensitivity - noise sensitivity - chronic cellulite - black outs - siezures - chronic pain - and the list goes on.... Rachel has even forgot who her daughter was after her eldest walked into her bedroom, telling her to get out of the house! Luckily the kids know this was only her illness and can laugh it out! But these are some of the reasons, Rachel's children would love you to help donate towards their mothers surgery! PLEASE HELP... Donate Please!

Thankyou to all the beautiful people who have donated even a $1 to help Rachel, its really appreciated

Rachel's battle to fundraise $100k has been very hard, but with help from local businesses and friends, we are slowly getting there!

Rachel along with her family and some friends are holding a bbq fundraiser at the COLES BYFORD store on the 23rd of March and invite you all along, there will be a few things for the kids to do on the day aswell!

In regards to Rachel's health, Dr Charlie Teo is about her only hope in some sort of quality of life, as the local specialist that are attending to Rachel are only managing her pain management plans while she awaits the day to go to Sydney!

Thankyou to everyone who is helping us and to all who are going to be helping! We appreciate everything everyone is doing for Rachel and her family
