Aido McManis, a 35-year-old father of two who first joined the printing industry on the finishing tables at Lindsay Yates in Sydney at the tender age of 14, is now locked in the battle of his life and he and his family need your help.
After finishing high school Aido joined Lindsay Yates full time as a junior customer service representative and steadily rose up through the ranks to become a Senior Account Manager. It was during this time he met Jaimi, with the pair going on to get married and have two beautiful boys, Toby aged 3 and Oscar, 1.
Last year in the midst of COVID, Aido was diagnosed with cancer and the treatment and surgeries he underwent have not been as successful as hoped with the cancer now in an advanced stage in the liver which means he requires new radical treatments and more chemotherapy.
Now this family needs help to get Aido through this next challenge and a Go Fund Me page has been set up to assist. Organiser Linda D’Arcy hopes to raise $10,000 to help the family with the tally now at $5,350.
“Anyone who has ever met Aido, knows that being around him brings a positive and joyful aspect to life. We ask ourselves, why can life be so cruel to those that bring nothing but love and care into the world, – especially to a beautiful soul with a wife and two young children,” Go Fund Me organiser Linda D’Arcy says.
We are praying to anyone that knows him, anyone that he kindly lent a helping hand to, or anyone that understands the battles that he is going through, to help support our GoFundMe page to aid the costs of treatments, travel and child care so that Jaimi and Aido can spend their time fighting this together rather than worrying about the costs.
