In last year’s AusMumpreneur Awards we met Sasha Maujean, who had created her own skincare range ‘My Gypsy Child’ and we were inspired by her story of formulating her own range of organic products and building a successful business from home. Sadly her business has had to take a backseat over the last 6 months as she is facing her biggest challenge as a mother yet, her beautiful baby girl, Rumer has been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, here’s her story:
My name is Sacha Maujean and I am a sole parent to my 2 beautiful daughters Romany Maujean aged 10 and Rumer Maujean aged 2. Unfortunately just before Christmas at 2am one morning I rushed little Rumer to the Cairns Base Hospital where they did extensive tests and then told me the devastating news that my gorgeous little baby girl has a large cancerous growth measuring 11cm long. They flew us down to the Lady Cilento Childrens Hospital immediately.
More and more awful testing and on Christmas eve they told me Rumer had a large neuroblastoma and stage 3 cancer. She has a 50% chance of recovery.
Luckily Queensland Health supplied us with our flights down to the Hospital but we are looking at around an 8 month stay down here, away from our home, family and friends.
If anyone would like to help Rumer and I out by donating we would be VERY grateful, as this is a difficult time for us.
Love Sacha and Rumer 🙂
