It’s all in a name . . .

Sometimes you look at a name of a company and you know exactly what they are all about.  Like ‘Jim’s Mowing’ or ‘Michelle’s Patisserie’.

On a sunny afternoon as I walked through the local Kiama Farmers Market, I was brainstorming while looking at the beautiful local produce, trying to come up with a name for my fundraising campaign.

I was coming up with words that meant something . . .

Hope – I have hope that the journey that I am embarking upon gives our family ‘hope’ of a better future.

Love – I know it will be hard, but I have the love of my family, my friends and a love for life that will give me strength as I undertake this lifesaving treatment.

Live – Bottom line – I want to live!

We worked on branding Hope. Love. Live. with a logo and coming up with a blog and website page to help share my experiences.

In ways Hope. Love. Live. has taken on a life of its own. But it is not a business or a well-oiled machine. It is a mother who is doing her very best to get the treatment she needs to be there for my girls (and hubbie) J

The benefit night on 14 May 2016 is our last big fundraising event to help us with the costs for receiving this HSCT treatment. So now I am reaching out for people to book ASAP at as I need your help to fill the seats to help me make this night a success.

We have some fantastic auction items we will be sharing on my FacebookPage in the coming days, so keep your eyes open and maybe get your passports ready! We also have an online donation campaign to help us get to our goal of $80K. To donate please visit

I fly out to Russia on 26 June 2016 and I am pleased to say with the help of many, we have raised $39,887K and I am humbled by the generosity of so many people.

What would your name be to sum up your goal for the year? Next year I am planning on mine being ‘Happily ever after’ J

Hope. Love. Live.
