My partner and I with our 6 year old son live together with our big gentle and friendly great dane puppy dog. We have a lovely home for where i have a home office and work running a property investment group and my partner is a police officer. My little boy goes to primary school at a nearby school in the next town around 7 minute drive away. We love our holidays locally and overseas and helping others dream big. In April of this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer which has turned our world upside down. This makes it very challenging for me to give the little boy the time he needs, have some help around the house with meals and some housework, helping with the little boy with baths and bedtime story's and companionship during the day for mum and going for shorts walks together and helping to keep my spirits up through the 'hard yards' of chemotherapy which is due to finish around mid Nov. To have someone come and help would be a god-send for us but also someone who is kind, compassionate and caring as it's stressful on us all. This will take alot of pressure of my partner and give lots of attention to the little boy who is probably feeling the disconnection from mummy at this moment. My drive at the moment is to get through the chemo, radiation and get back to normal with doing very limited work with my business and having some support for our family to live in with us!
