Help for Karl
Father of 6 diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and needs support from anyone that could help give hope to him and his childrenTaranaki
Not long before Christmas of 2018, Karl got diagnosed with stage 4 Lung cancer. One week later we were all told by the Doctors he only has a few months left, We are all so heartbroken with the time frame it's hard to get our heads around.
My siblings and myself came up with the idea to make this page to help Karl raise money to help with the expensive medical costs and take the financial stress off Karl, it's heartbreaking for us to hear and the last thing he should be worrying about is money as he has been through hell being a chronic pain sufferer for years struggling.
Time is precious for the 3 younger kids the rest of us are adults with family's with kids, we just want Karl to focus on spending his time with the younger kids with what time he has left.
Any help is much appreciated xxx

Groups representing cancer patients are worried that the Givealittle pages many rely on to pay for medicines not funded by Pharmac won't be supported in an economic downturn.
They also worry that if the health system becomes overloaded and ethical decisions have to be made about rationing ventilators then those with advanced cancer may not get access to them.
