  • Holiday update info     28 February 2018

    Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Jarrod. The holiday hasn't happened yet as Jarrod is liaising with his doctors on the best time to travel as he has frequent courses of chemo to undergo. At this stage the doctors think May 2018 may be the best time as this will be between courses of chemo. All going well Jarrod and his children will be flying to sunny Brisbane very soon!

    Jarrod and his family again want to extend their gratitude to everyone for your generosity. He's blown away that so many people want to help him.

    Jarrod wanted me to make a special mention of a recent gift of V8 Hot Laps from Mike Pero. This was a long-held dream of Jarrod's. He's long been a speedway fan. I bet he's still grinning from ear to ear.

  • Stuff article about Jarrod's story     24 January 2018

    A big thank you to Joel Ineson from Stuff.co.nz. Your article released on 15/01/18 was so appreciated.

    You didn't gloss over the facts about his past and we didn't want you too. Jarrod is human and has made errors, just as we all have. Jarrod is now looking ahead and wanting to make the most of what time he has left, and to be the best dad he can.

    The outpouring of support and kindness has been tremendous. And the support has come from all around the world. Absolutely amazing. Please know folks that because of your generosity, Jarrod and his children will get to have that holiday together.

    He is in awe and humbled that so many people have shown him kindness.

    Some folk who can't give have messaged him privately with words of support and encouragement.

    One lovely man generously contributed his photography skills and time and did some beautiful photographs of Jarrod and the children. See the black and white photograph shown in this update.

    Thank you so much to everyone. Whether it's a kind word, gift of your skills or money. It all means so much to Jarrod and his loving family and friends.
