Evie and fam­ily keep spir­its up

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

Dear Sir,

I just wanted to send you a per­sonal ’thank you’ to the com­mu­nity and give you all the lat­est Evie update from Bris­bane where I have spent the last four days with the Shaw fam­ily, and I am pleased to ad­vise that the unit we se­cured is lovely.

It is across the road from the royal chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal and has 3 bed­rooms a gym and lovely lap pool that my daugh­ter (Nicky) & Evie have been swim­ming in all week­end.

Evie has just started Ra­dio­ther­apy and we are up to day 4 of this treat­ment, it is not painful to her but the on­go­ing regime of Mon­day to Fri­day ap­point­ments can be daunt­ing and tir­ing along with side ef­fects such as nau­sea makes food in­take a real chal­lenge for the once un­fil­l­able Mal­ley Bull!

In gen­eral the doc­tors are happy with Evie’s progress and all other test re­sults have been favourable to date.

I have de­liv­ered the new lap­top to the Shaws (which they love) how­ever at this stage they don’t have email and in­ter­net ac­cess we are just us­ing mine.

Can I also just say that the mes­sages, gifts, let­ter and cards, acts of kind­ness that are com­ing through to the Shaws has lifted their spir­its and saved their san­ity day af­ter day. Your are a fan­tas­tic bunch who in­spire ev­ery­one.

A spe­cial thank you also to Ann Dol­lard, Corrine Durie and all other or­gan­is­ers of the boys BBQ & Girls night in, I am please ev­ery­one en­joyed a great evening for a won­der­ful cause.
