Please help Xavier smile again by supporting his Whanau to be by his side as much as possible.
On the 31st of July 2017 Xavier (8 years old) became ill and 1 week later was put in an induced coma and flown to Starship hospital in Auckland where he currently is and will be for awhile longer. Drs have advised that worst case scenario he will be in hospital and rehab for up to a year.
Upon arrival to Starship he was placed in the Paediatric Intensive Care unit where he was diagnosed with a rare illness called Guillain-Barré syndrome which affects the nervous system leaving Xavier now paralysed from the shoulders down.
Xaviers Mum (Martine Heeney) and Nan (Marj Heeney) have a week on week off roster travelling to Auckland from Taihape to keep vigil over him and support him where possible.
Xavier is a big brother to Brooklyn (3 years old) and Israel (1 year old) who are currently living with Whanau while their Mum and Nan tend to Xaviers every need.
Xavier is rugby mad and from a young age he has been throwing a rugby ball around, he is also a keen basket baller and loves shooting hoops with his cousins and friends who he is missing a lot and longing to be back at school by them.
All funds raised will go towards helping Xaviers Mum and Nan travel to be by his side each week, take the financial pressure away and provide necessities to his sister and brother.
