Long shot but, I'm hoping to win for my parents. My mum is the hardest worker, she's a nurse in oncology; works day and night with cancer patients, caring for them and with only 4 hours sleep a night she still has energy to be the most beautiful and kind soul you'll ever meet. Even despite the racial slurs patients throw at her. My dad has just been diagnosed with cancer, so mum, after long hours looking after cancer patients in hospital, now comes home to look after my dad too. Just as we were about to leave for a cruise that we all saved up super super hard for (technically we couldn't afford it, but my parents haven't been on holidays for many years), the doctor called the night before departure and told us my dad can't go; he needs chemo ASAP. Ontop of this, the cruise refused to give us a refund and the insurance won't give us anything either, thousands lost. So, being in the financial situation, my dad, with his cancer, is back to work fuelling aircraft. He is too weak to continue projects at home, and I am working everyday to try and help give them a hand but as a 21 y/o casual worker, working two jobs with a $60,000 student debt, it's difficult. And mum, having to deal with all just wants to come home to a nice home; before cancer my dad sparked up many ideas, that now he won't be able to finish. They even hired trades to come help, and we have continually been ripped off for thousands of dollars; they can see how kind and vulnerable my parents are. One tradie dug up half our yard and then left without finishing the levelling.
I'm a bit desperate to give them something back. They've worked so ridiculously hard, especially with caring for me, having had depression and anorexia too. They just... Deserve everything and I know this would mean the best.

Our new garden plans are now on hold for a year, due to a spinal accident. I would love to put a smile on my husbands face and renovate our dusty sandpit of a garden. Any help would be a godsend. Xx

I've never ever won anything in my life and definitely can't imagine you'd be remotely interested in my garden but my hubby and 3 boys and I have just moved into the Dunes at Medowie, NSW, gorgeous part of the world. Our garden is useless space, boring as and depressing really. HELP PLEASE!!! Would love some inspiration, go with it as you please, would LOVE you to come and do something with it. Jackie Hays xxx

My daughter has 5 children, a loving husband who is best kept out of diy shops, and has had Crohn's disease for the last 15 years. She works at the local church part-time, is an avid home maker and bakes for her family and others, and has helped out church members on many occasions. She has two beautiful daughters and three very handsome sons, one of whom has lactose intolerance and the other two are on the autism scale. She has set up and run for some years, a playgroup and support group for families dealing with autism, and has since handed over its running to others to continue. She also has had problems with epilepsy during her pregnancies.
Their current house has four bedrooms, and is fine in that regard, but only has one bathroom and toilet. They enquired about extending at one time, but were unable to afford the work to be done. A person with Crohn's and a child easily getting upset tummy from accidental ingestion of lactose really need more than one toilet at least. Is there any chance that your team would be able to help them to achieve this? Please?

Dear Backyard Blitz, I work at Nathalia Community Early Learning Centre. We are a new childcare centre in a small rural community with a strong Indigenous and farming heritage. Our centre prides itself with its wonderful dedicated staff and beautiful children. Our building is new but our yard area is becoming such a problem. Large amounts of rain, drainage issues and lack of resources has turned our yard into a mud pit and it has become an eye sore. The children are trudging through mud, the chicken coop is smelly and even the puddles are beginning to smell. We only dream of a yard that is beautiful and inviting for the children. I have photos I could send you just so you can see how much of a problem it has become. Please help us Back Yard Blitz, you may be the angels we have been waiting for!!!

Hi Backyard Blitz crew,

After 3 long hard stressful years I have finally built & moved into our dream home in a gorgeous coastal town in northern nsw. I have faced much adversity along the way but as a single working mum i'm always driven to provide my kids with the home they deserve to have. What is missing though are gorgeous gardens to match our dream home. We have a blank sandy canvas that we would love if you could help fast track our dream (by about 10 years) to completion! Thanks guys.
