My awesome brother in law Damon Jacobs who has two amazing young children and has recently celebrated his second wedding Anniversay has just had some devastating and life changing news.

After a bad run of poor health he has been diagnosed with Metastatic Her2 positive Adenocarcinoma ( a very aggressive form of cancer ) and its moving fast so it needs immediate medication.

The public health system has confirmed they will fund basic chemotherapy BUT they will not fund the drug Herceptin which has been recommended for this form of cancer and is the key to helping him stick around for as long as possible.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to raise money to pay for this treatment which will give this much loved family man, brother, son, friend some quality time to spend with us all

The funds will be used to pay for the drug Herceptin. Any excess funds will be used to help with daily living expenses due to Damon not being able to work and WINZ not helping.

I am Damon's sister in law Diana. When we found out that Damon was so sick and would benefit from Herceptin but it wasn't funded, I was blown away. How could there be a drug out there that could help someone get better, but you have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to get it. Damon is such an amazing guy and has so much to live for. We want to give him the best possible chance and getting Herceptin will do that. SO LETS DO THIS !

All funds raised benefit:

Damon Jacobs

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Damon Jacobs.
