Carole has advanced metastisised cancer. Please support her to continue natural therapies as medical cannot provide a cure.

Our beautiful sister, Carole, has been diagnosed with advanced (stage 4) cancer in her liver bile ducts, that has metastisised to her liver, external bile ducts and lymph nodes. Last year, Carole suffered the tragic loss of her daughter, her only child, and the death of both parents. Since then, Carole has been the backbone for her 3 grieving grandchildren, caring for their every need.

Carole has now completed several rounds of chemotherapy, however, this did not have any success in shrinking her cancer. She is no longer working and is focusing on being as well as possible, through utilising natural therapies.

Carole has been undertaking several treatments since her diagnosis; ozone therapy ($65 a session) and intravenous Vitamin C (approximately $229 per infusion). Even with family assistance, the cost is prohibitive as these therapies are not currently funded in New Zealand. Carole has also started Reiki and recently started Rife therapy. She has adopted an alkaline diet and is taking several supplements recommended for cancer. Your kind donation would go towards funding these treatments that give Carole the one thing that she's fighting for - to create beautiful memories and spend as much time as possible with her grandchildren, family and friends.

Carole is truly one of the beautiful people. Always thinking of others, never complains and is still more concerned about how her cancer is affecting the emotional well being of everyone else, but herself. Her life has not been an easy one, but her entire focus has been, and still is, on being there for others.

Tania Hubber's involvement (page creator)

As a family, we have gone through a lot of tragedy, Carole especially. Carole was diagnosed in August 2018 with advanced metastisised bile duct cancer which has spread to her liver and lymph nodes. Carole is unable to continue working due to her health.

Use of funds

Any funds raised for Carole will go towards:

- financial support to stop work and focus on treatment

- treatment costs (Vitamin C infusions, $229 each, Ozone therapy, $65 each)

- dental costs $1900


Latest update

We're extending Carole's page  9 September 2019

Hi to all of Carole's supporters

It's been a year since Carole was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and that year has zoomed by in a haze of treatments, appointments, scans, tears and laughter.

The kindness you have shown has quite literally kept Carole alive and... well, how do you thank someone for the gift of life? I'm not sure, but I want you to know how grateful we for that gift.

I originally opened this page for a year, given Carole's diagnosis, and now I'm extending the date because Carole continues to need our support to carry on with the treatments that are keeping her well.

Thank you, again, for your kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.
