Please help Graces family to support her on the road to recovery

Main image

Our darling Grace is currently being treated in ICU Auckland Hospital.

She contracted listeria meningitis which has led to Encephalitis.

She is now in a coma and receiving IV antibiotics to treat the infection

She was medically evacuated from Rarotonga where she and her partner Theo were working as teachers.

We would like to raise money to support her ongoing recovery and rehabilitation. And also to support her immediate family as they in turn support her.

Most of her immediate family live and work distanced from Auckland.

Ultimately this is all about Grace. If we can support her family so that they in turn can support her.

You as donors can help to make that happen.

Any donation however small will help to make that happen.
