Dad (Glenn) was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (rare and incurable blood cancer that affects the bone marrow) on the 26th December 2019 . He Started Chemotherapy on the 31st Dec and is awaiting radiation for a tumor at the base of his spine. Majority of his treatments will be in Auckland (a 2 hour drive) and is unable to work due to a broken disk bulging into his spinal cord that can potentially put him in a wheel chair, severe back pain and the side effects that come with cancer treatments. Any donations big or small would be very much appreciated to help with loss of income and travel expenses.

I (Glenn's daughter) will be doing the sky tower firefighter stair challenge with my full BA set on up over 1000 stairs to raise funds and awareness for the leukemia and blood cancer foundation. This is now a very personal goal and achievement and would love to help Dad out directly aswel .

Thank you to all that have supported him already, its means more to our family than you'll know ❤

Dad is doing really well and has responded to the chemo treatment really well and his cancer markers are at 0 which is awesome news. The tumor at the base of his spine has shrunk quite a lot but it is still causing him a significant amount of pain so he will be receiving radiation treatment in the coming weeks we hope. He has started his bone strengthening treatment now but a little too late unfortunately as the lastest MRI scan showed that he has broken 4 more vertabrae in his spine which is less than ideal but apart from this everything is going good and results are as good as they can be. He is still unable to work due to the pain he is in and how careful he has to be to not cause any further damage.

Your support and generosity has not gone unnoticed, thank you !
