Our 16 year old daughter, Jade, has cystic fibrosis. Her health has declined sharply in the last few years and she has endured numerous hospital stays.  We would love to be able to give Jade a holiday while she is still well enough to travel.

Two years ago we booked a family holiday at a Ronald McDonald House Family Retreat in Cairns for July this year.  But we are struggling to raise the funds needed for flights and expenses.  I have been too embarrassed to do this until now, but a number of friends and family have convinced me to publicly ask for help to get there.

We need about $2,500 for flights, and enough to be able to enjoy some decent family activities and cover holiday expenses.  We so desperately want to give Jade a decent holiday after all she has been through.  Not to mention her younger brothers Harry and Isaac, who, even with our best intentions, often miss out on attention that they need from us and others. The boys are so loving and supportive of their sister, and Harry is especially protective of her and never complains. Jade has such a determined attitude towards life and fighting her illness.  She is back in hospital again and I would love to see her truly excited and happy!

If you would prefer to donate directly to our "Holiday Fund" without using a credit card, the details are:

R Kollmorgen, Westpac A/C No: 733341, BSB: 642368

If a miracle happens and we exceed our goal, anything over $7,000 up to a total of $10,000 will be used towards our current unpaid bills and medical expenses.  Anything over $10,000 (we can dream!) will be donated directly to Cystic Fibrosis Victoria to assist in research to find a cure and to help other families living with CF.

Please help us to be able to afford to get to Cairns and spend some quality family time together on this holiday!
