The Under Our Roof family homes are helping country cancer patients through the toughest times of their lives.
People like Felicity Plew and her family.
The Darwin mother of five started experiencing abnormal headaches and problems with talking.
“I was finding it really hard to talk normally and I never have a problem with talking. I was also having headaches,” Felicity says.
“I was pregnant at the time with my fifth child and everyone thought I just had baby brain.”
Soon after, she was sadly diagnosed with a brain tumour.
After the birth of her son Jessie, the 32-year-old travelled to Adelaide for surgery to remove her tumour.
Doctors then found Felicity had stage for glioblastoma – an aggressive form of cancer.
To avoid costs of accommodation being away from her Northern Territory home, the family moved into THRF’s Under Our Roof home in Woodville West.
“The homes have taken away a lot of stress from such a difficult time. The kids have been able to have their own space, somewhere to run around and be normal kids,” Felicity says.
You can help more families like Felicity’s that need comfort at a time where they need it the most.
