Gold Coast CEO Mike Dowling has donated $10k to a child in need – Gold Coast Bulletin

Gold Coast CEO Mike Dowling has donated $10k to a child in need - Gold Coast Bulletin Press Release

There are four words that no parent ever wants to hear – ‘your child has cancer’.

Sadly, parents Justin and Kathy Obst were on the receiving end of this news in April when told their three-year-old son Eamon has been diagnosed with Wilms Tumour – a cancer of the kidney that commonly occurs in children.

Not long after, the couple were met by a kind gesture made by close friend Michael Arnold, who reached out to fellow Australians asking them to help the family through a crowdfunding page on gofundme.com.

The page received a massive response after family members, friends and friends of friends started spreading the word about little Eamon’s fight – $23,000 was raised in just one week.

Helensvale couple Lisa and Nathan Raets were among the friends who heard the news. Lisa and Nathan own the Helensvale North James’ Home Services Interior House Care franchise and asked Mike Dowling, CEO of James’ Home Services, if he would be willing to help the family.

Read the full story written by Emily Selleck and released in the Gold Coast Bulletin digital publication on May 8 2017 here.

“I would encourage others to donate – there is nothing like knowing you have helped another person in a very special way.” Said Mike after contributing a $10,000 donation to the cause.

To donate to Justin and Kathy Obst and support Eamon and his battle against cancer go to www.gofundme.com/3p7gl60 today.
