$84,770 of $100,000 goal
Given by 1072 generous donors in 11 weeks

Please donate to help Jo and her family during her fight against her aggressive form of Cancer.


Jo is a strong, inspirational, tough cookie, awesome single Mum to 2 beautiful children.

She had come out the other side of a few tough times to now be blown away with the shocking news that she has not only bowel cancer but also lesions that need aggressive, expensive treatment on her liver.

Jo is one of life’s good people, always willing to help others when they need, a wonderful friend, loves a party, but is also content to read a book , write or go for a bike ride with her kids or dog Jessie.

Jo works for Stuff as a reporter and recently became a celebrant. She often finds herself on the other side of these tragic stories and handles them with empathy and love.

It is now Jos turn to become a success story and we as her close Cromwell girlfriends want to do all that is possible to help get Jo and her family all the medical treatments available including the recommended non funded drugs.

Please donate anything you can, we all will be incredibly grateful.
