Community rallies behind family after heartbreaking news
A YAMBA couple have been overwhelmed by community support after being dealt a devastating blow.
Last month, Bowen's Delicatessen and Fine Foods owners Adam and Bec Bowen shared the heartbreaking news on social media.
"As most of you are aware Adam has experienced a number of medical episodes which has resulted in the closure of our delicatessen. He recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumour that is sadly terminal," the post said.
"We have made the decision as a family to spend what time we have left together. As a result the Delicatessen will be up for sale."
Since learning of the news, residents and customers across the Clarence Valley have come to their aid.
A GoFundMe page has been created with all proceeds going directly to the family so they "can focus on making cherished memories … and Adam's beautiful wife can concentrate on her family's well being at this heartbreaking moment in their lives."
Over $5,000 has already been raised since launching over the October Long Weekend.
