Raising funds for Fiona and Marius' medical needs and essentials while they are unable to work due to Fionas Brain injury. Arohanui.

Main image

On Sept 4th Fi was airlifted to Wellington hospital as the result of 2 sudden brain bleeds. She is currently in an induced coma after having neurosurgery. So many people have asked how they can help. This is the best way. In the coming days/weeks/months Marius and Fiona will need all the financial help we can offer. Fi and Marius have given so many people so much joy/hospitality/friendship/laughs/shoulders to lean on and love over thier lifetimes. To give back to them is an absolute privilege. There will be updates on Fiona emailed regularly to all donors.

Tracey Davis' involvement (page creator)

Fiona and Marius are my best friends.

Use of funds

As they are both self employed and can no longer work due to this event, the funds raised will go towards immediate needs for Marius, and associated costs for Fionas medical care/ rehabilitation and later essential costs.

Kia Ora everyone. Fiona has now been permanently transferred to Hutt Hospital in Wellington (Lower Hutt) She is now in a medical ward and will stay here until the rehabilitation process is finished and they are comfortable with her status. Its likely to be anything from 2 to 6 months but that could change. Its the question of how long is a peice of string. Everyone is different in the way they recover and Fionas brain injury was a big one. Visitors are welcome if anyone would like to see Fiona or Marius. Probably best to arrange timings etc in advance so as not to overwhelm. Fi does have some memory deficiet but she has recognized every visitor so far. There will be further updates next week or if there is any significant changes to advise you all. Thanks again for the support and for sharing the page.
