Life # 9 - The Christensen family from the Sunshine Coast
This month, Cricks 12 Lives wants to help a Sunny Coast family - Lisa and Bob Christensen and their four children, Jess, Conrad, Dana and Jordan.
16 year old Jess was born with severe cerebral palsy, and Lisa cares for her full-time. Last December, both Jess and her dad, Bob, were diagnosed with cancer within days of each other - Bob with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Jess with Leukemia.
Bob has undergone multiple rounds of chemo and radiation and was admitted to Royal Brisbane hospital last month for stem cell transplant and was discharged last week.
Jess's condition is stable at the moment, but she also requires regular chemotherapy.
Lisa manages all of this alone.
Bob has been unable to work for over a year and will most likely be unable to do so for quite some time. So they have to rely on Centrelink support.
What would really help this family is for their teenage daughter, Dana, to be able to get her driving license. It would help her mum, and also significantly improve her own employment prospects. But she doesn’t have anyone to teach her and can't afford private lessons. Their car is also not in great shape.
With everything this family is dealing with at the moment, we think the least we could do is help get Dana on the road.
So, with the help of the Cricks team, this is what we would like to do:
1. Driving Lessons: If you would like to make a donation towards driving lessons for Dana or if you would be willing to volunteer to take her out to help her get her hours up, please let your department head know or email us by clicking the link below.
2 . A Car Service: The team at Maroochydoore will be servicing the family's car for them, and seeing what they can do to get it in better shape.
