Our beloved mate has a fight on his hands!

As you may know, he was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Bowel Cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy to fight it.

While we have an amazing public health system here in NZ, there is another challenge.

A drug called Avastin has been recommended as his medical team believe it will give him the best shot at things... and it is not funded infact it will cost about $40,000.

So this is one way we can all support him and his amazing whanau as he puts his best Chewbacca impersonation into action and fights this with all the humour grace, and guitar solos we know and love.



janine carr's involvement (page creator)

Andy is a dear friend and a bloody good person. He has been stuck with me in his life since intermediate school.

Use of funds

Primarily, the medication he needs. Anything extra will just help him and his whanau with any support they might need during this time.
