Dear friends and family of Jane Paape,

We're here to support a good friend, a good person, someone we've laughed with, probably got drunk with, definitely shared a good story with, someone who loves life and who we love too.

I'm very sorry to those who are hearing about Jane's situation for the first time, perhaps through this page, that Jane has advanced inoperable pancreatic cancer. There's no easy way to say those words, nor to write them, but here we are. Jane is remaining positive and has a pragmatic outlook to living with her diagnosis.

Through our donations we will be able to make Jane's life a little simpler and a little less stressful.

The funds donated will help Jane see her family, extra medical expenses, transport to chemo, some treats and just mean she doesn't have to struggle with the bills.

Any monies that Jane doesn't need, or use, will be donated to Cancer Research.

UPDATE 23 July 2020 - chemo begins  23 July 2020

Posted by: Josie Rainer

Dear friends and family,

Jane has now had her portacath insertion in her chest and starts hard core chemo this Friday 24 July. It’s all very scary and unknown but she’s being very strong and brave. She’s bought new sheets and a new duvet for the bed, as she’s spending lots of time there now, and a new device to use while in receiving the chemo.

She has changed her diet and is taking a number of natural products to assist her strength. She has also been having regular reiki and therapeutic massage therapies.

She’s looking to book a second opinion post the first round of chemotherapy treatment, which is 3 months total. They will then know how she responds and she will also have an update on her cancer.

Jane wants to thank you kindly you all for your messages, calls and support, it’s all so overwhelming, but knowing she has so many people with her on this journey means so much.

Right now she’s very happy to hear from you and needs all those messages more than ever to help her through. She can be contacted on, and Facebook. Mornings are best.

Lots of love, light and hugs everyone
