Support Erik's treatment journey. Every donation counts. Let's fight this good fight together!

Howick, Auckland

Meet Erik, a man of unwavering courage and resilience. In 2008, a fainting spell revealed a tumor the size of a tennis ball in his brain, unnoticed for over a decade.

In 2011, just before moving to New Zealand to marry the love of his life (me), he faced another battle as scans revealed more growth. Yet, Erik, ever the fighter, underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, starting a new chapter in New Zealand as a Civil Engineer with a fulfilling life, family, and faith.

In 2022 (after having two daughters 1 year old & 4 years old), a seizure unveiled recurring tumour cells, leading to more treatments. With God's grace, remission came in November 2022, but complications from radiation treatment arose in May 2023, causing loss of functionality in his right arm and leg and an inability to work.

Most recently, Erik faces another daunting challenge as scans confirm the resurgence of cancerous cells. But Erik refuses to surrender. Fuelled by love for God, family, and an unwavering determination to overcome, he fights on.

We've exhausted our finances and insurances, to get Erik this far, and now we need your help. Your generosity, no matter how small, will provide the means to access the next round of treatments for Erik, offering him the chance to keep fighting.

With faith in God's power and the strength of our community, we believe we can overcome this challenge.

Thank you for your kindness and belief in Erik's strength.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Nasreen (his wife)

Use of funds

We are currently fundraising for Erik to start on a course of Ivosidenib via Canopy Care ($128,000 NZD (after insurance).

While Erik is starting on this treatment, we hope to also fundraise for him to go to Hope4Cancer for treatment ($95,000 NZD)

If we do not raise enough or the doctors recommend otherwise, then funds will go towards a treatment of immunotherapy (we will update users with the name if it comes to this)

Erik went to the Market!!!   11 May 2024

We had one of the best mornings as a family today. Erik felt confident on his feet and joined us for a morning at the Howick Saturday Market. He wanted to get me something for Mother’s Day ❤️ but also felt confident enough to go into a busy public space and walk around. We listened to some live music, had a coffee and watched our kids dance and make new friends. It was amazing….. THANK YOU for all your prayers and love. It’s been a week since Erik has started taking the new drug and he still has no side effects and he believes it’s helping him feel more stable on his feet.

We couldn’t have done this without each and everyone of you. 🤗❤️🤗
