Giarni's Shave-OFF

By Tina Thompson-Dockery

I'm fundraising for Ronald McDonald House!

Its been a little over 3 weeks now and our whanau along with our beautiful baby girl are ready to share our unfortunate news. 

On the 2nd of December 2020 our whanau was rocked with the devastating news that no one wants to hear, our girl Giarni age 11 years, has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer Rhabdomyosarcoma. Its a muscle type of cancer, that started from her foot and unfortunately it has spread throughout her body to her lungs and her bones, she has started chemo treatment. We are so proud of her and how far she has come it such a short time, she's such a trooper!

We as a whanau are going to start a fundraiser campaign called "Giarni's Shave-OFF" as we all know with Giarni under going quite intense chemo, she will suffer hair loss, which is happening now as we speak. She is stronger then I thought she'd ever be. She has shown me what true courage and resilience really is!❤

Her older brothers Storm-Lee 23, Greegan 21 and Sirr 17, also her sister inlaw Mariah, as well as myself and Dad will be supporting our girl and we will be taking part in the Shave- OFF as well.

"What she goes through on this Journey we will go through as Whānau with her" #Wegotyoumygirl 

 

Everyone keeps asking if they can help in anyway and this is the only way we know how, is by giving back.

To date we have received so much love and preys from all walks of life. And we will forever be greatful to you all.❤


So we've created this page because we want to give back to a charity that is doing so much for us at a crucial time in our lives. We're inspired by the work of Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand and wanted to support them by raising money any way we can.


Every year, thousands of families from around New Zealand will turn to a Ronald McDonald House for free accommodation and support during their child’s medical treatment. 

We want to make a difference for these families by raising much-needed funds.

Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. 


The more people that know about RMHC® New Zealand, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

What we also ask is....when you do "Give Now" in the comments can you please, VOTE for the person you would put your money on, we won't benefit from it obviously but the person with the most votes will win bragging rights. Just how we like it in the Thompson-Dockery household!


Giarni's Shave-OFF...........

When - 16th January 2021

Where - Hawera Primary School

Time - 11am 

Please come along as there will be other raffles running on the day.

Neighborhood support 🤝 from all of us at #41. I vote muma bear Tina, Bohen votes Tina, Tony votes Greegan, Ashlyn votes Greegan, and 3 votes to Giarni from the others. And as I know family competition involves making rules up as you go I move that all comments with no votes default a vote to Giarni. Thinking of you all.
