30K in 30 Days – Anything is Possible


Today we need your help to create hope.

You see, I have two daughters and I can’t imagine what Beaconsfield’s Colleen Nelson is going through as a mother after her daughter Ciara was diagnosed with a rare Brain Cancer at just 16 years old.

The tumour is in a really difficult location on her brain, and the diagnosis is grim. Do nothing and she will die, or give this young girl a shot at life, give her hope.

The only option remaining is surgery with world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo, a professor and surgeon in Sydney.  Dr Charlie Teo is a leading surgeon who takes on high-risk cases and has met with the Nelson family, reviewed Ciara’s tumour and is willing to operate.  Ciara knows the risks – however she knows the risks of no operation as well.

As a parent myself, I would move the earth to assist my children, and today I am asking you join me to help Colleen spend more time with her daughter and help us raise $30k in 30 days.

It is urgent, Ciara’s tumour has grown from 5mm to 6mm and there is a short timeframe of only a few weeks in which it can be operated on.

I ask you today to make a tax deductible donation and as we start your 2018 with your personal wishes, challenges and opportunities I ask you assist in giving Ciara Nelson the one thing she needs – Hope.


Yours Sincerely
