My Travel Story

by: Laura Roffe Start Date: Jan 23, 2018 - End Date: Jan 22, 2019
When my husband and I had children my Auntie Matilda, in Australia, was diagnosed with breast cancer. I really wanted to go and visit her but with little children and child care fees etc we just couldn't afford it. I always told the children we would visit her one day. 
Recently my Auntie has been diagnosed with breast cancer again.
I am desperate to take the children to meet her. 
My Auntie Matilda went to Australia in the 60's as a £10 pom. Sadly her husband, My Uncle Walter, passed away 10 years ago from the dreaded Cancer. My Auntie is now almost 80.
We are trying to save oursleves but it is so slow. I'm worried time is passing too quickly.
I would be enormously grateful for any help you can give to get us there before time moves on any further. Thanks so much.

  • My Aunt Has Had Her Operation.

    My Auntie is doing well after her op. Soon they will let her know if they managed to get all the cancer out
  • I Have Now Set Up The Donation Page Correctly! Sorry Guys!!

    I'm sorry to those who have tried to donate to help us get across to Oz to see my wonderful Auntie. I hadn't set the donation page up correctly. I have worked it out now. Thanks so much.
