IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR.....LET'S COME TOGETHER AGAIN & HELP BRING A SMILE TO OUR PATIENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN, WHO ARE AFFECTED BY MND.
Motor Neurone Disease is a cruel, devastating illness with average survival of 2-3 years after symptoms first develop.
The St Joseph’s Hospital MND Service (part of the St Vincent's Family) provides care and support for people living with MND and their families, in the Western Sydney region.
Six (6) of our current patients have preschool or school-aged children, aged between 2yo-15yo, so they could really do with a kind gesture to help cheer them up.
Last year we raised $2730.00 in just 1 week!
Seven (7) of our patients/ families benefited from this money:
For example, the 15yo son of one patient bought himself an ipad.
One patient & his wife bought themselves some new clothes & shoes ("...finally, we have no more holes in our shoes").
Another 12yo girl who lost her dad to MND during 2016, wrote to us after & said "....I will start year 7 in 2017, so the gift card will be very handy. It has been a tough year, but I know Dad would have a smile on his face about this".
So let's see if we can dig even deeper this year & again bring some super big smiles to our patients and their families.
YOU CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE.
The money you donate will be used to purchase "Coles Group & Myer" gift cards, that will be personally delivered to the patient's door, in time for Christmas.
Donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.
Thanks in advance for your support.
