Our beloved ‘Barb’ has terminal cancer. However, with additional finacial assistance, her life could be extended out possibly by 12 months.

Please see the update on the 30/10/18 for Barb's treatment!

Due to huge expenses of medication and treatment (approximately $100,000) to prolong Barb Finlayson’s life expectancy we need your help in order to raise funds to contribute towards this. Her cancer is terminal, and unfortunately there is no cure. However, with additional financial assistance her life expectancy could be extended out possibly by 12 months. This would give her more time with her family and friends, many of which have traveled or even moved here from the UK to be with her during her journey.

Any donations welcome, no matter how small! Please contribute in any way you can to help make a difference to the time we have left with her.

Nancy Cox on Behalf of NZDF's involvement (page creator)

I am a work colleague and want to help out in a small way due to the huge expense of the medical treatments. Not to mention the difficulties and logistics of care required with family and friends for treatment in order to prolong Barb’s life expectancy for this terrible disease.

Use of funds

The funds raised will contribute towards the medication and treatment to prolong Barb’s life expectancy. There are also the logistical costs of care and accomodation involved during this time.
