Help support Jake's recovery
Jake Milbank's Recovery from injuries sustained from White Island EruptionBay of Plenty
Jake is a tour guide for White Island Tours. He was on the island when it erupted, and has sustained burns to 80% of his body.
This normally passionate energetic young man, who has a love for anything ocean, was in his element when this tragedy occurred.
However he now has a long journey to recovery, and anything raised on this page will be used to help the family financially to ensure they can be by his side all the way. And provide anything Jake will need during his recovery.
Jake is currently staying in ICU in Middlemore Hospital and he is surrounded by his family. The family would like to thank you all for the messages, support and good wishes for Jake that they have already recieved.

To everybody who has been supporting me I would like to say a big Thank You. We are grateful for the kind donations received through the Givealittle page and I am enjoying reading the awesome messages and comments that have come, they’ve really helped me.
A few days ago I moved out of ICU and into the National Burns Centre. This is a big step in my road to recovery. So far I have had 14 visits to theatre – sometimes the surgeons are grafting parts of my body and other times they are changing my dressings and checking out the progress of the work they have done.
Now that my fingers are no longer bandaged I have been able to use my iPad to catch up with my friends.
Thank you so much for your kindness – it means a lot to me.
