Help me battle recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4
Help me access non funded Chemotherapy drugs to extend quality of life.Northland
Hi. My name is Brett Hunter. I'm 43 years old and the father of 4 beautiful daughters aged 19, 16, 5 & 3. I also have the most amazing wife Jo of nearly 9 years.
In November 2017 I went to the hospital with severe headache's. I was quickliy diagnosed with a GBM 4 brain tumor. Average survival rate of 12-18 months. I then went through urgent surgery to remove what they could and then start 6 weeks radiation and 6 months of chemo.
Unfortunately at the beginning of December 2018 a new tumour had grown in a spot deep down in my brain and has now started to limit my mobility on my right side. We are about to undergo more surgery and then radiation and chemo.
The reason for this page is to raise money to access Avastin which is not funded by Pharmac but has some strong evidence behind it in extending quality of life when dealing with recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4.
Use of funds
The funds raised will firstly go to covering the cost of Avastin. If there is any surplus this will then go to my wife to assist our children with day to day needs if I'm no longer around.
Hi all. Just a quick update to let you know that I got in for surgery last Thursday. It went as well as we could of hoped for. I have regained the use of my right leg again! We are now in the waiting process to firstly see what it was they removed and how much. From this they will formulate the treatment plan which will start after a 6 week wait period post surgery. Bring it on!
