Collecting for Suzie Kanturek

Flowers are lovely, but not particularly helpful. Helpful Love provides a community of caring local businesses who provide useful practical services. Here’s a list of our lovely Port Macquarie vendors. We can also source more vendors as requested.

Suzie’s sister, Linda Martin contacted Helpful Love on 31 May 2018 following the fantastic news that Suzie will be moving from ICU in the coming days and commencing her rehabilitation with the goal of returning home. Rather than inundate Suzie and Petr with flowers, Linda requested to set up a Collection Page to raise some Helpful Love funds for Suzie and Pete to ease the burdens of day to day life and enable them to focus on Suzie’s recovery, rather than domestic duties.

Message from Linda: “Just on 6 weeks ago we were confronted with a totally unexpected event. My younger sister, Suzie Kanturek became ill and in an emergency response was admitted to Intensive Care at PMBH. She spent 4 weeks on life support with the pendulum swinging precariously.  The tide thankfully turned 🙏.  As she has been improving over the last 10 days, I have been thinking of how we can continue to support her when she does eventually get to return home again. She will require ongoing treatment and intervention for a long time and I can’t think of a better way to give her some reassurance than to turn to Helpful Love. This page has been created in her honour and so I invite those of her friends who would like to, to contribute to the purchase of vouchers for things like home cooked meals, domestic assistance, garden maintenance, pet care for her beloved pooches, counselling support, personal care services and more…”

Thanks to the generous contributions of family and friends Helpful Love vouchers totaling $930.00 were delivered which they can use to seek domestic assistance through the Helpful Love community over the coming weeks, months and years. The vouchers never expire.

A full list of names of all contributors was provided to Suzie and Petr, together with all messages of love and support from their loving community.

Thank you to everyone who thought practically during this difficult time.

Sending all our love from the Helpful Love community xx
