Heidi Hawkins is the 2 year old daughter of Walgett couple Scott Hawkins & Karyn Barrrett. Unfortunately, Heidi has just been diagnosed with Bilateral Wilms Tumours. As you can imagine this terrible news has rocked the Hawkins, Jennings & Barrett Families. The next few weeks will be made even more difficult as chemotherapy treatment for Heidi will coincide with the birth of Scott & Karyns 2nd child together. If you wish to send them messages of support a Facebook page called “Helping Heidi Hawkins” has been created, please use this page to contact them instead of clogging up their phones/emails. Updates on Heidi’s progress will be posted on this page. Feel free to share this page or to invite as many people as possible.
A “Helping Heidi Hawkins Benefit Night” is being organised for Saturday the 11th of April 2015. A registered charity will be created in Heidi’s name and once that is completed monetary donations & auction items will be accepted. Funds raised will assist with medical and other expenses incurred while Heidi is receiving treatment. A donation will also be made to the Ronald McDonald House in Westmead.
A meeting for the “Helping Heidi Hawkins Benefit Night” will be held this Friday the 20th of February at the Walgett RSL starting at 5.30pm. Organisor Peta Schiller has been inundated with numerous offers of help and invites anyone who can assist with the running of what she is suggesting will be a huge event in Walgett. On behalf of Scott, Karyn, Alex & Zac thankyou so much to everyone for their kind words, offers & prayers.
