Thank you for keeping Jamie safe

It has been a tough year for three-year-old Jamie and his family, but the caring support of donors through the Leukaemia Foundation’s Emergency Tax Appeal has made all the difference.

Jamie was only two when he was diagnosed with blood cancer, forcing his family to relocate from their hometown for life-saving treatment in the city.

His family have been overwhelmed by the heartfelt care of Leukaemia Foundation supporters. This generosity has given Jamie’s family a safe and clean place to call home at Leukaemia Foundation accommodation during such an uncertain time.

Nearly one year on, Jamie and his family are still living at their home-away-from-home, a welcoming place near hospital that mum Nicky is so very grateful to supporters for.

COVID-19 has added even more stress to our lives. Having this safe place to stay has been a Godsend – your help has meant the world.”

As Jamie enters his maintenance treatment phase, Nicky looks forward to the day she can finally bring her little boy back home. The day Jamie will be reunited with his beloved pet lamb Coco on the farm. Ordinary life back on the farm with a busy three-year-old begins again soon, all thanks to the incredible support of donors and fundraisers.
