Our sincere thanks and gratitude to Jason and Rebecca Buckley from Kids Decor Co who auctioned a range of their products on Trademe and raised an incredible $4,500 for Ava. Their kindness and generosity to Ava whom they have never met is a remarkable act of support and encouragement for our family. We hope that they in turn receive the support for their business that they so justly deserve.
