I would like to nominate my nephew Alex and his family for a garden makeover. Seven years ago Alex was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Several operations later he is now about to start radiotherapy for five days a week for six weeks, followed by a year of chemotherapy. He is married to Kerry and they have three children. They both work full time as well as caring for their family and have experienced many stressful times over the years. Alex recently spent a month in hospital recovering from another operation. Kerry continued to work, care for the children as well as travel an hour each way to visit him in hospital. This involved not least heavy financial burdens but also time and energy. They did receive help from friends and family with childcare which helped to ease the burden somewhat.
Alex is now off work and will continue to be whilst he has his treatment. This again causes stress on an already stressed couple who are concerned about not only his job but his well being during these not so pleasant treatments.
At present the company are being very supportive but there is the constant anxiety hanging over them that this will continue to be the case in the future. Alex has been unable to drive for some time now and this has had an effect on an already stressed family. They are a strong couple who are still striving to provide for their family and support each other during Alex treatments.
They have tried to improve their garden but time, energy and finances have not allowed. Winning this makeover would be a big boost to their moral and give this young family something to look forward to in the coming year. I hope you will read their story and vote for them.
