Help Danielle Fight Cancer
Danielle has Stage 4 colorectal cancer. Please help us pay for unfunded Cetuximab to slow the growth of her cancer down.Wellington
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
Any funds raised will go towards paying for Cetuximab. If any surplus funds they would be used to pay for any other treatments Danielle may need or investigating alternative treatments or making some memories with her beautiful daughter Luca and family.
Round six of chemo down and have MRI and CT booked for next week to see if tumours in my liver are responding. All fingers and toes crossed, prayers, positive thoughts appreciated. And once again thank you so so much for all the support and kind messages, the dinners dropped off. I couldn't do it without any of you xxx Danielle
