Friends of Ellyse

Ellyse Coleman is a young woman with a heart of gold, someone who is kind, caring, loyal and a true friend. A friend who would do absolutely anything for anyone in need, yet never asks for help herself. We are starting this Go Fund Me page to support Ellyse and her young family knowing that it is exactly what she would do for someone else in her situation.

In recent weeks Ellyse’s world has been devastated with her diagnosis of Meningioma, a rapidly growing brain tumour. Thankfully the tumour is benign, however due to it’s size, location and it’s fast growing pace her neurosurgeon has advised it needs to be removed urgently. This means Ellyse will need to stop working to have the surgery and the recovery process, which will take months, will start. Her loving and supportive fiancé Marcus will also need to stop work to care for her and run their household.

Ellyse and Marcus are both Central Coast locals who are embedded in the community. They are amazing teachers who teach at local schools, keen soccer players with the Berkeley Vale Soccer Club however, most importantly, they are adoring parents to their gorgeous 2 year old twin daughters. Not only is their young family feeling emotionally devastated by this diagnosis, they now have the financial stress of what this journey will mean for them.

Any funds raised will go directly towards Ellyse’s ongoing recovery to help her and Marcus provide for their family and assist in relieving the stresses of their everyday lives. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking the time to donate to this beautiful young family in need.
