New drugs Cetuximab and Encorafenib are pricey! So I need your help! Thank you all.
My name is Andrew and I am fighting Stage Four Bowel Cancer... which sucks.
SO ... due to the success of my last Givealittle page started up last year by my dear friend Janine, I thought I would start another one to help fund my next round of Avastin. Thankfully I no longer have to pay for the drug itself but unfortunately due to the lack of funding for PHARMAC in New Zealand, I still have to pay for a private hospital to administer the drug.
I have no doubt that Avastin, working alongside my chemotherapy has been successful in keeping my cancer at bay, so much so that I have recently had a 2nd surgery to re-attatch my bowels and remove my stoma. (I am very happy to be using my butt again). These successes in my battle would not have been possible without the generous donations received last year.
My family and I are eternally grateful for your help. All funds received from this page go directly towards my treatment and nowhere else.
Thank you all so very much.
Lots of Love

All funds will be used to pay for my treatment and nothing else.

Unfortunately Avastin has run its course for me and I have been moved on to Cetuximab and Encorafenib which are considerably more expensive. The cetuximab is on the pharmac list so fingers crossed it will get funded soon!
Thank you all for your continued support.
