A magic switch isn’t going to suddenly reset this chaotic world tonight at 12pm.
So no New Years Resolutions from me, just a fond farewell to a painful 2020 – the saddest year ever for myself and so many, BUT with a sign of silver lining appearing lately.
So instead of wishing you all the best for 2021.
All I do is pray for your health. That you are loved completely. That you appreciate all you have and give where you can. That you get to spend more time with loved ones. That this crazy pandemic ends and we return to some kind of normality. That you learn to be gentle and patient and slow to anger. I pray that you will be able to hug and kiss those you treasure before the end of 2021.
Hunter Emms is a precious 5 year old with an Optical Nerve Glioma. It is inoperable and will need chemo and/or radiation treatment to counter it’s growth his whole life. It already affects his eyesight, balance and co ordination and despite being benign is life threatening if not treated. He was originally diagnosed at 18 months and undergone chemo for a season.
Most recently Hunter’s tumor has grown significantly despite the MEK inhibitors and he is facing another year of chemo and then radiation.
We are wanting to raise support for his family (Barry, Shirley and Finn) to cover the medical costs that their medical aid oncology benefit doesn’t cover as well as the specialists needed for his care (Physios, ophthalmologists, Chiropractors, a pediatric neurosurgeon, pain and nausea meds, therapists and dietary requirements.)
