Renal Papillary Cancer - rare, aggressive, non funded. Allana, just turned 29, single mother of 3, Stage 4 diagnosis.

Allana is an amazing mum to three beautiful girls, Ava aged nine, Kora six, and little Ana who is four. As you can imagine, life as a solo mother keeps her on her toes coupled with working part time for the NZ Police Force.

In March 2019 Allana was diagnosed with Papillary Renal Cancer, Stage 2. Major surgery followed to remove her left kidney which a section of the growth had attached itself to.

Unfortunately, her most recent results came as a shock....the cancer has returned to the same area, however it is now at Stage 4! To make matters worse, due to the rarity of this cancer it attracts no funding....at all...even though it is an aggressive cancer! Chemotherapy is not effective for this type of cancer and surgery is not an option either.....there is only one avenue with no alternative, a daily tablet called “Sunitinib” at a cost of NZ$10,760.00 for 28 days. This is cycled at 28 days on, 14 days off. This treatment is purely about containment of the cancer...to prevent it spreading.....affording Allana quality time to spend on her girls.

So, this plea is two sided.....the practical need to cover her medical expenses is the biggest factor.... . the family's reserves will last another 12 weeks before being exhausted. Secondary to her medical costs, is the desire to send Allana and the girls on a holiday whilst she has the relative 'health' to do so. A trip to the Gold Coast is being considered.

This is not a request we make lightly, we do understand that everyone has their own personal

circumstances to tend to so we truly appreciate any amount you can spare.

Lisa Anderson's involvement (page creator)

I am Allana's Aunty and friend. As a fixer I certainly would fix this for Allana and her beautiful girls if I could, but sadly no one can. We are reaching out to help make dreams come true and give the 3 girls some security in their difficult future.

Use of funds

Funds are primarily being raised to cover medication costs, if there was enough to fund a trip for Allana and the girls to go on holiday and just spend time making memories together, that would be fantastic.
