Tweed rallies to help sick Caitlin

THE Tweed community is rallying behind 21-year-old Caitlin Ambrose as she battles with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Caitlin is heading to America as soon as she can to participate in a $130,000 potential life-saving drug trial that targets Ewing's Sarcoma specifically.

To make sure she gets the care she needs, Caitlin's friends, with the help of Apex Murwillumbah, are hosting hosting a car wash each Saturday in April to help raise money for her treatment.

"We have now raised over $50,000 plus over in $15,000 in additional fundraising activities so far,” family friend Meredith Meeves said.
