Bringing back Isabel's smile!

Bringing back Isabel's smile!

Personal message

When someone tells you, you have a terminal illness that's progressing rapidly and you’ll likely only live another 10 years, what do you do? Do you give up or give everything you’ve got to fight, see your kids grow up or see your grandchildren start arriving? 

The first option was never an option for my mom so fight she did - & still does more than 34 years after her Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis.

It hasn’t been an easy road & the disease has robbed her of many things: her ability to drive, walk & care for herself. What it hasn’t taken away is her stubbornness (good & bad) & determination to not be defined by MS. She is feisty, passionate & cares deeply about her family.

Through the many years, she has been supported by my incredible dad as well as siblings:Ralph, Sean, John & myself & those closest.

With further progression of her MS & the multitude of complications that go with it, her medical expenses are rising. 

Most recently, deterioation of her teeth due to years of constant cortisone treatment resulting in many issues which have caused her teeth to start crumbling at a rapid rate. It has become very difficult for her to even eat or simply smile. 

I'm reaching out to friends & family to ask for help so we can get the care she deserves.

Any donations (no matter how small) will go towards the medical care needed for this incredible woman I call Mom.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant medical practioner and medical aid for ongoing medical care*
