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)

YAY!!! It’s working  24 June 2024

We've received incredible news from Erik's recent MRI scan – Ivosidenib is working wonders! In just six weeks, we've seen its effectiveness without any side effects, which is truly amazing. Erik feels stronger and has more energy each day.

We are profoundly thankful for God's continued presence in our journey toward healing. Your unwavering support, prayers, and resources have brought us this far. Whether longtime friends or newfound supporters, your love in action has made all the difference.

These past three years have taught us gratitude for each day. Regardless of each of our’s current situation, we have so much to give, so much of love and joy to experience, so much to grow and do. Despite challenges, we've learned to cherish the present and embrace each 24 hours with believing. Today, we celebrate this victory, Erik's resilience in facing every challenge head-on and the support and love of family, friends and strangers.

To ensure Erik continues to receive the care he needs, we've committed to significant costs for Ivosidenib and complementary therapies. Your generosity has been instrumental in making this possible. THANK YOU!!!

As our fundraising nears its end in five days, we want to express our deepest gratitude. Your contributions have been invaluable, bringing us closer to our goal. Together, we've made a profound impact on Erik's journey to health.

Thank you for standing this with us. Your support means everything. ❤️❤️❤️
