To support Korey and Joanne to be by their son Christian's side as he fights for his life!


Christian Pese, is only 18 years old, and suffered a massive stroke on Sunday afternoon (14th March 2021).

Christian has his whole life ahead of him, he has been representing 3 sports at top levels and has just started his degree at Otago University doing law.

Christian comes from a strong, loving and supportive family but he is fighting for his life right now down in Christchurch. His family is based in Auckland but have all travelled or are traveling to be by his side. Christian had only just set himself up down in Otago when this happened.

His family is devastated, their eldest son Caleb is desperate to get home from Sydney and they all need to be able to be together again. It is now time to hope and pray for a miracle!

Please help us lessen at least one burden for this family over this time. Christian we love you and you are a fighter! Arohanui to Korey, Joanne and all of your beautiful whānau.
