Family calls for accommodation help while in Brisbane

COMMUNITY support for Jamie Manuele has been overwhelming, with more than $1000 raised for the family.

Jamie's grandmother set up an account for the family, which is struggling to pay for accommodation in Brisbane while staying at Jamie's side as he battles a brain tumour.

Jamie's mother Daphnejean, partner Cara and his siblings are staying in Cancer Council-arranged accommodation at $280 a night. Daphnejean said the house they had been renting was pre-booked from next week, and the family was struggling to find even a caravan to rent. Any help is appreciated.

The family is grateful for money raised so far and has thanked the community.

"Every cent is a blessing," Daphnejean said.

Donations can be made to NAB's Manuele trust account at BSB 084-905, a/c 948843635.
