Danielle has Stage 4 colorectal cancer. Please help us pay for unfunded Cetuximab to slow the growth of her cancer down.

Main image

A few weeks ago my beautiful sister Danielle received the devastating diagnosis of Colorectal cancer which has also spread to her liver. At 36 years old with a 12 year old daughter, this is the last thing that any Mother or young women wants to have to go through.

Danielle has started her chemo treatments during COVID-19 but due to the advanced nature of her cancer her oncologist has suggested a treatment plan which includes an unfunded drug called Cetuximab. At the cost of approximately $20K a year for the drug itself and then $2,000 just for the administration of the drug by a Nurse. Cetuximab gives Danielle the best shot at her cancer shrinking and staying under control. Unfortunately, Cetuximab isn’t funded in NZ and we are willing to do anything that buys her more time to spend with her daughter Luca and family and friends.

While I know it is a hard time for everyone during COVID-19 literally every dollar counts. If you would like to help and leave messages and a small donation for Danielle it would mean the world.

On behalf of our family, our heartfelt thanks for taking the time to read this page and for anybody able to contribute towards the cost of a drug that will prolong Danielle's life, enabling her to spend more time with her beautiful daughter Luca, family and friends.

Danielle is my sister all funds will go towards her cancer treatment and wellbeing.

Use of funds
