Help to give Jo more time with her two boys


Jo Simpson is a much-loved Mum of two boys, daughter, sister, cousin, niece, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and friend. Jo has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the breast cancer she beat 6 years ago has unfortunately metastasized and is now in Jo's liver, lungs and brain. The prognosis Jo has been given isn't great, however if anyone can show this shitty disease who is boss it's Jo! She's an amazing and strong wahine who remains positive and determined throughout this journey. For the past 5 months Jo has been trying every treatment her oncologists have recommended, but unfortunately these treatments haven't worked, and it's now recommended that she start an unfunded chemo treatment ASAP (nab-Paclitaxel/Abraxane), which she will remain on for as long as it's having results. This treatment isn't cheap ($10k per month) and Jo, who has given up her job for the time being, needs our help to cover the costs. Anything you can give (no matter how small) is hugely appreciated. Please help us to give Jo as much time as possible with her cherished boys, Luke (14) and Liam (9). Any excess funds raised will be used to pay for an awesome holiday somewhere in Aotearoa for Jo and her two boys.
