Supporting Elton, Kirstie, Olivia, Charlie and Hannah
To help support Kirstie and the kids spend as much time with Elton at Burwood through his rehab journey.Manawatu / Whanganui
On the 2nd of March 2020 my amazing brother, and pillar of the Mayo family, Elton had a terrible accident resulting in a life changing spinal injury, turning his, Kirstie, Olivia, Charlie and Hannah's lives upside down.
Elton’s accident will leave him paralysed from the chest down. Elton is in the ICU at Christchurch hospital in an induced coma and currently unaware of his situation. After several weeks in the ICU and once stabilised, he will be transferred to Burwood in Christchurch where he will begin his long rehab journey. Elton's relationship with Burwood may be up to 2 years. As you can imagine, all Elton, Kirstie and the kids will want is to be together throughout this difficult time as they come to terms with what this means for them.
So many people are reaching out to help in some way. The purpose of this give a little page is to provide a means for those who have reached out to do so. Please leave a message for Elton that he will pick up in due course, so that he is aware of this amazing support around him. For anyone who wanted to contribute to this page, this will help fund Kirstie and the kids travel to and from Christchurch, enabling them to spend as much time as they can with Elton through this period away from home. This will also help in a small part ease the financial burden ahead for Elton and Kirstie as they adjust to their new lives.
Thank you so much for all of the support during this difficult time.

We are not looking for any further donations to this page, but we will keep this page open so that we can post progress updates on Elt for you all and so that people can continue to send messages of support.
There is no update to provide at this point. Elt remains in a coma and we know nothing new. This coma is an induced and controlled coma for his own comfort as a few internal complications are worked through. Until Elt is out of this induced coma the full extent of his injuries will not be clear. We will keep you updated on Elt's progress via this page as we get developments.
