Please support Andrea Canning (nee Jones) cancer fight

Wellington

Andrea Canning , ‘Andy’ or ‘Nandy’ (to the Grandkids), is a mother/stepmother of 4 and a grandmother of 4. Andrea has spent her life putting everyone else first and is a wonderfully loyal and selfless person. She is family orientated and a best friend to many; fun and full of energy. Throughout her life she has tirelessly supported everyone around her, always happy to invite others into her home and to lend a hand. Her door is always open, her kitchen always ready and she has fought many battles for those who have needed her.

This time Andrea needs to get a little support.

Andrea is currently going through chemotherapy for a grade 3 invasive triple negative breast cancer tumour that has spread from her breast to her lymph nodes. A successful treatment outcome is not guaranteed. Andrea has shown inspirational courage to date and is fighting to beat this.

An immunotherapy medication, Pembrolizumab has been recommended by Andrea’s Oncologist to take in combination with her chemo.

This treatment option was only approved in December 2021 for breast cancer treatment in New Zealand and is not publicly funded. Andrea will have to self-fund at a cost of $116k.

We don’t understand why this treatment is not subsidised given it increases survival rates to >90%

Andrea’s family have created this Givealittle page to raise part of the overall costs for her treatment.

If you are reading this and wish to support Andrea’s fight then we would be deeply appreciative of any pledge no matter how small.
