    Story

    We'd like to help change the life of Dawn, a 44 year old woman from Milton Keynes.

    Dawn and her partner Tony both work as carers, looking after elderly people who have dementia. They also have 4 lovely boys aged 7, 8, 24 and 25.

    In January 2015, Dawn was diagnosed with stage three Inflammatory breast cancer. She underwent six months of chemotherapy, including a double mastectomy with radiotherapy. Sadly, a couple of months ago a biopsy confirmed her cancer was back. She is now awaiting a scan to check for stage 4 cancer.

    The impact this has had on Dawn and her family’s life has been enormous. It’s obviously been devastating for them emotionally, but it has also made things tough on a practical level. Dawn hasn't been able to work, so they have been living on one wage. At a time when they have so much else to worry about, we want to help make their home life a little bit easier.

    Dawn and Tony recently had to have their roof repaired as it was leaking. As well as causing damage, the leak was making one of her son’s unwell as it was worsening his asthma. Colleagues and friends helped them out financially to enable them to pay for the repairs. But they have still been left with water damage to all of the bedrooms.

    This family are going through so much and we want to do something kind for them.

    What We Need
    A painter/decorator or donations towards one - We are looking for a kind company to donate their services to redecorate the water damage in Dawn’s home. If we can’t find a company to help, we would like to help raise funds for Dawn to pay for one.
    Gifts for her and 4 boys - We want to help Dawn, Ton and the boys redecorate their bedrooms and also treat themselves a bit. We have set up an Amazon wishlist and asked them to choose some things they would like.

    Thank you. 😃
