Nicky's life long dream was always to take her children to Disney World.
This dream became a mission when 4 months ago she was told she had cancer, her mission was a simple one:
"Beat the cancer, take the children to Disney"
If only it was so simple, as last week Nicky was told by her consultant that she had 18 - 24 months left to live and so ending her dream of taking the children away.
This is why I am writing to you today regarding my close friend Nicky Lewis who, 4 months ago at the age of 36, was told she had cancer. She had a large section of bowel removed and started chemotherapy in the hope of curing the disease.
For someone so young to get cancer seemed at the time unfair, unfair to her, her husband and her two children Cody who is 11 and Fai who is 5. The plan was simple, get well, beat the cancer, then Nicky wanted to do what she always said she would and take her children to Disney Land. This plan and the lives of the family and her friends was smashed to pieces when we were told just over a week ago that Nicky's cancer was incurable and that she has a maximum of 18 - 24 months to live.
As her friends, we feel powerless. I guess because we are. Desperate to try to help, we thought we would try to make Nicky's last wish come true: to raise the funds to send her and her family to Disney Land Paris.
If you able to give any amount big or small it would really help towards reaching the target of £5000, the amount needed to send Nicky's Family on her last wish.
As a father of 3 myself I feel and am powerless to help Nicky and her family with the cancer. Why, well simply because there is nothing that can be done. That said what I can and will do, is to do anything within my power to raise the funds to send them to Disney Land.
I along with other friends are organising fundraisers to try and make Nicky's last wish happen, to give Nicky, Jon and their two girls Fai and Cody a last memory.
If you can help then thank you, if you are unable then I still thank you for taking the time to read this and for taking the time to visit GoGetFunding.
Father of 3 beautiful children and close friend of Nicky & Jon.
