We are writing to update you all on Abbie’s health and what stage were at with her brain cancer treatment.

As you know, Abbie underwent brain surgery in November last year to remove a 5cm grade 4 glioblastoma tumour. This was followed with 30 rounds of radiation and daily chemo. She is currently on monthly chemo and scans have shown that this chemo isn’t working the way it should and tumours have been growing back.

Abbie will most likely need to do another brain surgery in the next two weeks, radiation on a higher dose, and her oncologist has said she needs to try two new types of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, one type (called Avastin) which is recommended by the oncologist isn’t funded in NZ and will cost over $30,000 NZD, but could make a huge difference in killing Abbie’s cancer.

With Abbie being unable to work since November, they have been relying solely on Karls income (what a hubby!). Every little thing helps, so if you are in a position to donate, Abbie and Karl would immensely appreciate your help in getting through this next stage of battling grade 4 brain cancer with Avastin chemotherapy.

None of us can believe we are facing this, especially after Karen Humphries, Abbie’s mum, lost her battle with breast cancer just last September. 

This is another huge battle for the Humphries and Sundgren’s but Abbie is being so strong as always, and is flighting with all she has!

Love you all lots. We appreciate all of your ongoing support!

We’re overwhelmed and extremely grateful for all of the love and support donating and sharing our page. Our hearts have melted into a puddle over and over with all of the lovely messages we have received.

Thank you so much to every single person. We have enough to cover Abbie’s treatment and for me (Karl) to be able to support Abbie in hospital. Or if we need to stay closer to the hospital while Abbie receives treatment, we will be able to. All thank you to you!

Our hearts are bursting with love 💕
