IT doesn’t seem like a day goes past without us all hearing or reading about another person who is undergoing some hardship, or enduring unnecessary suffering through no fault of their own.
One such case is Kathryn Osmond who has spent most of her working life helping others, and indeed frequently saving lives working as a paramedic for the NHS in the UK.
Now, aged just 40 years old, and with three young children to think about, she has been diagnosed with advanced malignant melanoma with a prognosis that is not very good; a few months at the most. All normal treatments have failed but there is one option left, Tumour Invading Lymphocytes, but there is only one problem.
It is not available for free, and will cost in the region of £70,000 (€91,000). Fundraising has already begun with a page on the JustGiving website: Help Fund Kaths Magic Bullet, so if you can, please go to this site and donate direct, but the good people of Centro Commercial Rioja in Orihuela Costa are going a stage further, and will host their own charity fundraiser on Sunday, May 29.
There will be entertainment from a host of singers as well as comedy and other acts (the full line up has yet to be announced), there will be arts, crafts and charity stalls, the usual raffle and tombola with numerous prizes, plus a lot more besides.
If you want to do your little bit to help this wonderful lady recover from her illness, please come along and support her.
EWN will publish full information on the fund raiser as soon as it becomes available.
