Help Stacey Schultz beat Breast Cancer

$8,882 of $24,536 goal
Given by 131 generous donors in 10 weeks

Assist us in raising $24,536 for Stacey Schultz to cover her non-funded breast cancer treatment. Every donation will make a difference.

Whangarei, Northland

Stacey Schultz, 31, independently made the journey from South Africa to New Zealand eight months ago to immerse herself in the 'Kiwi life.' For the past six months, she has been employed as a High School Teacher in Whangārei. Unfortunately, in the last month, Stacey received a diagnosis of an exceptionally aggressive form of breast cancer that has already metastasized to her lymph nodes. Currently undergoing treatment, she has already completed one round of chemotherapy and is to start her second round this week.

We have set up this GiveaLittle page because Stacey requires additional non-funded treatment that the New Zealand Government does not cover. Stacey must bear the financial responsibility of $24,536 for the Pertuzumab/Perjeta Treatment. While Stacey typically refrains from seeking assistance, the urgency of this situation cannot be overstated, and this treatment may be the key to extending her life.

Stacey expresses gratitude to all those who find it within themselves to contribute, and once her journey concludes, she aspires to reciprocate the support she has received—perhaps even surpassing it. Stacey is a beautiful wahine toa who deserves all the help we can provide. Let's rally together, show her aroha, and make her journey as smooth as possible.

How You Can Help: 1) Donate: Every contribution, no matter the amount, will make a significant difference to Stacey’s treatment. 2) Share: Please share this campaign with your network, spreading the word far and wide.

Heartfelt Update on My Treatment Journey  28 December 2023

Posted by: Stacey Schultz

I am reaching out to convey my profound gratitude for the remarkable support you've provided throughout my ongoing treatment. I am genuinely moved by the kindness and generosity demonstrated by everyone. I am delighted to share that I have commenced this treatment, marking a milestone of two weeks today.

While this journey has presented its share of challenges—filled with moments of frustration, smiles, laughter, tears, and occasional feelings of hopelessness—I want to emphasize that the support I've received has played a pivotal role in navigating through these experiences. Despite some lingering unpleasant symptoms, the encouragement I've received has been crucial in sustaining hope and determination.

Your koha has not only lifted the financial burden, allowing me to concentrate entirely on my recovery, but it has also been a source of strength and motivation. Your generosity has left an enduring impact on my life, and I want you to understand how profoundly grateful I am.

Thank you from the depths of my heart for being a significant part of this journey. Your ongoing support continues to inspire and uplift me.

The desire to give back is a driving force that motivates me to work towards creating positive change and fostering a sense of community well-being.

Kia ora.
