For the purchase of Ibrutinib, life saving cancer medication.Nelson / Tasman
Hello my name is Craig.
Unfortunately I have Mantel cell lymphoma a blood cancer and was given to 2 weeks to live in April. My Hematologist put me on a drug which is not funded by Pharmac and my death is not a special circumstance to apply. I am unable to have anymore chemo or stem cell transplant as my body regected my last dose in November 2018 and almost killed me with a trip to ICU and infections and the threat of a breathing tube. So this is my last chance of more time.
So I but a generic form of the drug from another country. The cost of the drug is $300 a week and unfortunately i cannot afford to purchase anymore. I am unable to work and the help I get from the e government is minimal after living costs.
After not dying my GP called me a miracle and I would like to keep that going, as I will be my own statistic and write my own book.
I did want want to do this as being a proud Kiwi always meant we could do it ourselves, but I can't unfortunately.
I Thankful and Grateful for any help I receive.

I don't know where to start. I am overwhelmed by people's generosity and it has brought the odd tear to my eyes.
I would like to thank my Family, Friends and complete strangers. You have changed my life and unfortunately I can never repay you.
