We would love to be able to help relieve the financial burden for the family while their 4 year old boy receives treatment for Leukaemia

Lachie is a sweet little boy who found out just after his 4th birthday that he has Leukaemia. He will have long stays in the hospital needing chemotherapy in Christchurch.

We wish to be able to relieve some of the financial pressure the family will face while Lochy receives treatment. It would be amazing for his parents, Pat and Jeanna, to be able to fully focus on Lachie and their other two boys, Malachi and Silas.

The hospital is 3.5 hours from their hometown which will make travelling a huge part of this journey, and makes it difficult for the parents to work as well as look after their home and their three dogs. If possible we would like to help raise money for their extended family to go and visit and help them while they are in Christchurch. There will be many hospital visits and stays, many doctors appointments - this wonderful amazing family has a long road ahead of them.

If you could kindly make a donation, no matter how big or small, it would be gratefully appreciated
