Lets give Ed, Meg and their two children the chance to create memories together! Help us raise money to send them on a family holiday to Disneyland Paris.
After giving birth to their second child Arabella, Meg noticed things weren't quite right. Her body didnt feel normal but it was suspected this was just an unfortunate side-effect of the medication given during the c-section.
The side-effects didn't stop so further tests were carried out, with the conclusion that there was a very small piece of tissue in her brain. Surgery was booked and although nervous and worried, life on the whole didn't change.
A few weeks passed and surgery was fast approaching. Further tests were carried out for the surgeons to finalise the plans for surgery. This is when the situation drastically changed.
What was originally thought to be tissue had grown, meaning it was a tumour could likely be some form of cancer. Urgency for surgery became apparent and within days, Meg was under the knife.
The surgery was fairly successful, with the surgeons removing as much of the tumour as they possibly could. The removed tumour was sent off for testing to understand what it was, and to provide a diagnosis for future treatment.
Unfortunately, this is when the worst news was received.
Doctors had found that the tumour was in-fact a Stage 4 tumour. As it stands, Meg is healthy but it is likely that further treatment will be needed over the coming months/years.
Why are we fundraising?
As friends and family of Meg and Ed, we would like to give them the opportunity to create memories as a young family. The dream is for them to travel to Disneyland Paris and enjoy everything Disney as a family.
As a young family and with Ed being the only "breadwinner", it is almost impossible for them to save money for this memorable experience. We've already clubbed together to provide money for bills and groceries, and now we want to go one further.
How are we raising money?
As friends and family, we will be carrying out a number of activities to help raise money. A few early examples are:
- Sponsored Mankini Walk (Group)
- Liam O Connor will be jumping into the boxing ring for the first time, taking part in a white-collar boxing match.
- Josh Tobin and his partner Steph will be running 5km per day for a month (running isn't his thing)
It is still early days and we have plans for a comedy night, more physical activities/challenges and possibly another charity sporting event.
If you would like to organise an event/activity and have it added to the page, please text Lawrence on 07375 372334.
