Helensvale James' franchisees Lisa and Nathan Raets were among the friends who heard the news...
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.
“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.
Congratulations to Mike for your nomination for the Queensland Community Foundation’s Small to Medium Business Philanthropist of the Year! For more information about James’ Home Services and Mike Dowling, click here.
