The ageing vehicle that the Ponting Family relied upon was no longer suitable for the numerous medical and therapy appointments required by the youngest daughter who is diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome (catastrophic epilepsy). Mum, Rebecca is constantly on call to ensure her daughter receives the medical attention when required.
WA Charity Direct assisted by providing the funds to purchase a reliable second hand vehicle.
The Ponting family are grateful for the help with this message:
“Thank you to everyone involved for providing us with a reliable secondhand vehicle, it will change our lives! It will be such a relief knowing I can take my daughter to hospital and appointments without my car breaking down or finding another to borrow. Please pass on my sincere appreciation to everyone involved who took the time to review my application and provide the financial assistance, I am forever grateful”. Ponting Family, 2016.
