Grayson's treatment options are running out. Please help us ease some of the family's financial burden.

Main image

Grayson was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma when he was just 8 months old. Him, his mum Jody and dad Alex had to move from their home in Whangarei to Starship where he started chemo immediately.

After 6 months of chemo they realised his cancer had become resistant, he relapsed while on treatment. Grayson was started on a different drug. Unfortunately after a further 3 months of treatment this drug was also ineffective.

Graysons next step is a bone marrow transplant, which means several more months of hardcore chemo, then a transplant then recovery and hopefully remission. The family will be in hospital most of the time, confined to the transplant unit through Christmas into the new year.

This is an awful, emotional rollercoaster that Grayson and his parents have been on and they need your support. This is the second fundraiser for his family as he has needed treatment after treatment past what we all had hoped.

Grayson's treatment options are running out, if this doesn't work then his future is uncertain. His family remain positive but have no choice except to live with tunnel vision and concentrate on the now. Please help us ease some of the family's financial burden so they can focus all their efforts on helping Grayson get through this horrible disease.

Funds raised will be used to cover expenses from the unknown amount of time Jody, Alex and Grayson will have to stay in Auckland away from home.
