It is one of the most frightening experiences, learning that you or someone you care about has breast cancer. There are times when you just wish the world would stop spinning, but then it doesn’t. It is a frustrating feeling, but it also forces you to think of what you can do to help. That is why when we learned that a mother of five and a good friend from Melbourne had breast cancer we immediately knew we had to do whatever we could to help. She expressed her wish to have a backyard where her children could play in without her having to supervise their every move. So, we decided to fulfil that wish so she could better focus on fighting her battle.
Thanks to the generosity of our directors Fraser Gehrig and Tanya Hall; Residential Sales Manager Luke Manning; and Commercial Operations Manager Travis Knight; we were able to pull this project together. Almost everyone on the team pitched in and gave their evenings after work to help build a new yard for the family, and we could not be prouder of every one of them. We wish to thank everyone who gave their own time for this project, from Emily Kolacz and Caitlin Longworth who provided the remarkable design, to Garth Andrews, Ryan Wilson, John Raymond and Daniel Johnstone who worked tirelessly to complete it.
This breast cancer warrior still has a long battle ahead, but we hope that in our little way, we were able to help make that fight just a little bit easier. We dearly hope she overcomes her battle and that she knows everyone in Tuff Group is rooting for her and cheering her on.
