Supporting our wonderful colleague Leanne MacKenzie
Many of you will know our wonderful Recruitment Manager – Leanne MacKenzie. Leanne has worked on and off with Working Parents Connect (and our previous company JustMums Recruitment) over the past 5 years in many different roles including Resume Writer and Career Coach – and she now manages recruitment campaigns (for mainly Administration roles).
During her time with us, Leanne has worked closely with our amazing clients and helped many of our wonderful candidates with their resumes, interview coaching and then securing employment. She is an incredibly kind and generous soul and a much loved member of the WPC team….. and it pains us that Leanne and her family – husband Tyler, daughter Maddy (10) and son Lincoln (9) – are going through such a hard time at the moment.
Sadly, Linc has been battling Ewing’s Sarcoma (a rare bone cancer) since May 2019. After countless invasive and gruelling chemotherapy sessions, radiation and extensive lifesaving surgery, in late November Leanne and Tyler received news that no parent should ever receive…. ‘the treatment is not working’. After 2.5 long years of fighting hard, Linc’s body has said enough, and his incredible team at the Royal Children’s Hospital agree. It is now time to be together and enjoy what time there is to be had, smiling, laughing and loving. You can read more about Leanne’s wonderful family (and her incredibly brave and handsome son) in the link below.
We would love to make life a little easier on Leanne and her family at the moment (especially with Christmas around the corner) so if you are in a position to make a donation (big or small – every dollar counts!!) then please do so via this link https://www.gofundme.com/f/missing-linc
Leanne doesn’t ever ask for help and had to be convinced by me to post this…. so we appreciate any support you can give. In Leanne’s words “Look after yourselves, hug your loved ones extra big today. With love from our family to yours”.
Thanks in advance,
Erin & WPC team
