The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello & Thank You for Visiting our page. Please find below our story and why we need your help.
We would like to further thank Everyone who was helped us get closer to our dream.!!
We have also had over £1000 in private donations which has allowed us to lower the total target online here.!!!
We are so close now, so please help all you can for the final push!!
Family is the most important thing. Family 1st and Family forever.
This is our family reaching out to everyone who can help us to make our biggest wish and dream come true.
Family for us at the moment is, Dana 37- Da Mother, James 40- Da Father & Sienna 8- Da Daughter. Together we are Da Familia.
Until 1 year ago we also had Aston 5 (in the picture above) – Da Son in our Familia too.
As most of you will know we lost Aston in October 2017 after a 7 month fight against brain cancer. Aston was an absolute HERO and the most inspirational BIG Person ever seen by the people that knew or met him.
BIG HIGH 5 BUDDY BOY!!!
We did everything we could together and more, always with Love, Care and Support as Da Familia!!
Together we put up a big brave optimistic fight against brain cancer for 7 months, undergoing brain surgery and 5 rounds of hard chemotherapy. We all stood strong together for the whole time. We were going to beat this evil monster!
Then out of the blue...
Devastatingly the cancer was to strong and it came back after 7 months with a vengeance. We were able to be together for 2 more weeks. We stayed with loved ones in the Hospital that had cared for all of us so lovingly during the whole battle.
Everybody did everything they could for Aston. He was such a chap until the very end.
X X X BIG LOVE TO ASTON – FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS & SOULS X X X
So to move on a year from then... With lots and lots of time spent coming to terms and healing, we are now stronger than ever and a super positive Family.
We are so very very much ready and wanting to make Da Familia larger! Sienna would absolutely love a few younger brothers / sisters so she can be again Da Big Sister.
Now for the part where we explain why we need your help, a lot of your help.
So it was about 6 years ago that we undertook the very serious decision for James to have a Vasectomy.
We did not take this decision lightly but it seemed like the right thing at the time. We decided that the 4 of us were a dream team, Aston, Sienna, Dana and James, we thought the right option then was to focus on building a bright future for us all.
It goes without saying that we had no idea what was to happen to Aston.
After putting everything we had into being with and supporting Aston, we have been left with no funds and no way of being able to pay for the Vasectomy Reversal Procedure.
We have applied and appealed several times for Exceptional Circumstances Funding from the NHS during the last year with lots of rejections and no joy!!
This is our last hope!
We need your help as we have tried everything we can.
The chance for us to have more children is our wish and our dream.
Thank You so very very very much from Sienna, Dana and James
