Raising funds to support Sam, Sophia and children during this heartbreaking time as they navigate funeral expenses and essential bills.

Dunedin, Otago

On Thursday the 2nd of May Sophia got the devastating news her body has been taken over by an aggressive terminal cancer.

Everyone that knows Sophia and her infectious laugh and love for her family knows she means so much to so many people, she is a Wife, Mother, Daughter Sister and the kind of friend that leaves an imprint on your heart.

We want to relieve the financial burden when the time comes for her beloved Husband and 3 Children that she will be leaving behind.

Sophia and Sam, the one who stole her heart, got married in March 2023, after being together for 8 years and welcoming Aengus in 2020 into their already blended family, Nushka (nearly 21) and Nieko (14).

On October the 9th Sophia went to ED with severe ongoing pain, they suspected appendicitis and she went in for surgery immediately, during the surgery they found a small tumour which turned out to be stage 3 bowel cancer, they thought they had removed it all and she was cancer free, she proceeded with chemotherapy to "clean up the dust" however as time went on pain continued and worsened and with further investigation it became apparent that the cancer had been spreading and it was aggressive and incurable.

Any funds received will be used for her funeral and any costs that may arise during this time. We want them to focus on supporting each other, and spending quality time together rather than stressing about finances.
