Brutus & Rocky - One of the Family

Story

Hi everyone and welcome to my fundraising page

 

Let me start by saying that cancer to me is a dirty word that fills me with fear. It has affected myself and my family greatly - it has 'stolen' my Mum from me, my Dad and my Sister are in remission from it, my good friend passed away from it, my other friend is in remission from it and I have two friends fighting the disease right now.  So as you can imagine it is a subject very close and personal to my heart.

 

Sadly like many other people, I have never thought of supporting any cancer charity prior to losing my Mum let alone even saying the word 'Cancer' in the same sentence as any of my loved ones.  When my Mum was diagnosed my whole world fell apart and if I am honest there is still a huge 'Mum sized gap' in my life which simply cannot be filled.

 

There are many cancer charities/groups that I could support; but I have decided to support Cancer Support WA and take part in the Pet Project Fundraising Photographinc Exhibition called 'One of the family' to raise much needed funds for Cancer Support WA. 

 

Cancer Support WA helps people and their families that are dealing with cancer and provides support services not to mention the only 24 hour Cancer Support phone line in Australia - I guess you could literally call this a 'life-line' to anyone that not only has cancer, but their loved ones as well. 

 

Through this page you can support my efforts by sponsoring my "One of the family" portrait of my boys Rocky and Brutus who tried so hard to pose nicely in the photograph and be good boys and didn't do too badly at all considering it was their first photo shoot. 

 

You can make a secure donation online and no matter how much it is, it will be more than welcomed by Cancer Support WA because at the end of the day it doesn't have to be a big donation to make a difference, it just has to be a donation.  Cancer is a cruel disease - don't wait until it affects you before you support a cancer charity.

 

If you could share my page with as many people as possible or comment below so more people know about it that would be great. 

 

Click 'Donate Now' to make a secure online donation. 

 

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a DGR receipt via email as soon as you make a donation, which can be used at Tax time.

 

We are hoping to raise $120,000.00 to support the work of this incredible local charity – Cancer Support WA. Your donation will help us reach this goal and the portraits will be displayed in a public exhibition in 2015. Details of the exhibition will be emailed to you closer to the date.

 

Please find below the story behind my “One of the Family’ portrait.

 

Thanks so much for your support!

Lure coursing (West Coast Dog Sports)

 

Brutus first came to us as a foster dog aged 12 weeks old.  He was not the kind of dog we were looking for; we wanted a small female dog as a friend for our kelpie, not a ridgeback/kelpie male. 

 

However as it was meant to be a temporary measure it wasn’t a problem. (thank you Cath and Justin from CJ Animal Rescue!) After just 3 days we decided that he belonged with us and we adopted him thus making him a ‘foster fail’. 

 

In that first week we nearly lost Brutus from a serious case of gastro and he spent the first part of his new life in hospital on fluids.  This took him months to fully recover and that was when we realized just how much we loved him. Now we cannot imagine our life and home without our clumsy, kind and gentle ‘Scooby Doo’ lookalike.

Favourite past time

Swimming and going out in the car

 

Rocky came to us aged 5 months old as a rescue dog from S.A.F.E.  At around a year old he was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia so he cannot play ball games or go off the leash unless it is for swimming.

 

He is an easy dog to have around and loves going in the car and going on holidays.  Rocky is a very sensitive little guy and even knows when there is going to be a thunderstorm about 30 minutes before it happens.  He is also able to predict if my asthma is getting bad and will sit outside the bedroom door crying to wake me up when I need my inhaler and he is always right about it.

 

Rocky is my best friend, he just knows me probably better than I do myself.  He is a significant part of our lives and I love this little kelpie dog.
