Family Support Cancer Sick Kids

Hazel and her family received the devasting news that Hazel has a tumour in her hip that needs immediate treatment. Hazel and her Mum are currently in Starship receiving the best possible care from the awesome medical team there. Now we can play our part and help support this amazingly giving family by giving back to them.

A beautiful family unit of 6 open up their home and foster children in need providing them with love, comfort and a safe haven in times of desperation. Dad Kelsey humbly receiving a Tairawhiti Men of the Year Award in 2015 for his services as a CYF Carer. Mum Alicia, a busy Mum of 4 also working as a home based childminder caring for an extra 4 preschoolers in her home while their parents work.

The family have a houseful with 16 year old German exchange student Caleb becoming 'part of the furniture'.

These funds will help relieve the financial burden that comes with being away from home and not being able to work. With both parents being self employed and having to travel from Gisborne to Auckland to be with Hazel costs soon mount up. The money will go towards helping with travel, mortgage, household bills and any other costs incurred. Lets band together and embrace this family as they do in our community.
