Hi All

Hi all – we have a special edition of the Napier Natter this week to ask for your support.

 

I’m sure all of us have walked into the Napier butchery at some time or another, perhaps totally unaware of the deep sadness that permeates the lives of the owners, Anton and Adele. They have twins who are eleven years old.

One of them, Anél, has Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening genetic disease.

 

Everyday of this child’s life begins with a nebulizer as well as a physiotherapy session. Pancreatic enzymes, pills for the liver, pills to prevent infection and ulcers are part of her normal breakfast routine and then another 15 tablets during the day. To date, Anel has suffered liver enlargement, serious lung infections, and bleeding in the lungs. Despite all this, she remains a positive and happy child.

 

The cost of the ongoing treatment is astronomical and impacts hugely on the family.

 

Just imagine this was someone close to you…

 

This is an appeal for your support and an opportunity to show that Napier cares.
