Our Kylie helps our community all the time. Now she needs our help. Your support will help Kylie access life-saving cancer treatment.

Greymouth, West Coast

Kylie Bellis is a mother of three, a wife, a friend, and an outstanding and well-respected teacher in Māwhera. As well as looking after her own whānau, Kylie also looks after so many of the students she teaches - going above and beyond for everybody she encounters. Now it’s our turn to look after her.

Kylie has recently been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), the most aggressive form of breast cancer, which has spread to her lymph nodes. Not all treatment for TNBC is currently funded, unlike other forms of breast cancer. Kylie and her family are yet again facing another long fight ahead of them. Her son was almost killed two years ago when the car he was travelling in was struck by a drunk-driver, severely injuring him, his friend and sadly killing his friend’s grandmother who was driving. Kylie’s family have faced more hardship and trauma than any family should have to endure and it is unthinkable that they are now facing the loss of this incredible woman.

The treatment that will give Kylie the best chance of survival is not funded and will cost approximately $70,000. Additionally, Kylie has no sick leave available to her as she used it all caring for her son during his recovery. We are asking for any donations you can manage in order to support Kylie and her family to fight this battle.

Use of funds

Donations will be used for Keytruda which is an immuno therapy treatment program. Which currently funded for certain types of lung cancer, but not for the treatment of Kylie’s diagnosis of TNBC. Every dollar will go towards the treatment.

Funds to go to Kylie's husband John.
