Cancer

Money is tight at the best of times, but when a family is battling cancer, funds can disappear so quickly! Daily life becomes a struggle, and forget saving up the 10+k for a flight to see family in America. Graydon's parents don't regret becoming Kiwi's, but they dearly miss their families, who cannot fly to us due to health issues.

Graydon is an amazing little boy who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on Feb 5th 2014, shortly after his 2nd birthday. The news devastated friends and family from around the world, especially his Grandparents, aunties and uncles, who live in his parents home country of America and have yet to meet their grandchildren, Graydon and his big sister Cecily (who is now 10). Our biggest wish is to save up enough money to finally visit our families in the States once Graydon's treatment is finished in 3 years, as well as give this sweet little boy and his sister all the support and happiness we can.

Update June 9th, 2014: Graydon is doing well, with a few semi-serious bumps along the way. There have been no delays in his treatment, and he will be starting maintenance phase in a week or two. Things have been really tough, but there is a silver lining! As of the end of the first phase, our boy is cancer free - we now have three years of maintenance to keep him that way. Things are getting tough financially, so we can still use all the support we can find.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Graydon Barstow.
