In early December 2018, at the age of 40, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
Some seriously aggressive chemotherapy treatment began 10 days later and immediately had me in need of help.
Having two little boys to care for, the only way to lower my load of stress was to Gather My Crew of support around me pronto. Having heard about your website, my best friend swung into action, setting up some tasks and rallying the troops to join my Crew.
She built a 65 strong Crew who have lifted me up and given me the additional support I needed to get through this overwhelmingly difficult time I find myself in.
They complete tasks such as shopping, cooking, child minding and cleaning. They turn up at my place for walks without me having to lift a finger. The website takes the job of organising these things (through a million text messages) out of the equation.
Seriously – it is a godsend and it has also made me feel exceptionally loved and supported.
Thank you so much for creating it. It is literally saving my life.
