Special Travel Cancer

I have started this Give A Little page as so many lifelong friends of Mum have expressed their wish to donate to help Mum in her journey to beat cancer. The standard chemotherapy methods here in NZ have been unfruitful and Mum is now going to Japan to undergo treatment that have given patients with similar diagnosis positive results. Positive results however big or modest, as long as it's significant, is better than no result.

At the very last minute her insurance company advised that it does not cover this Japan treatment ($27,000) as it is not in line with traditional NZ treatments - which, as far as I've seen involves waiting weeks on end to get a consultation, a lack of medical resources and an attitude of indifference. We've nothing to lose in trying an out of the box method. Whatever it takes to give her a chance of beating this cancer and allow her to be here with us all until she's at least 90.

Thank you to all who walk this journey with her. She wouldn't be this strong without each of you holding her up with your love and support.

Funds will be used to pay for her Japan treatment and any other related expenses which may come her way so she can focus on getting better. Donations are open until 14th November.

Thank you again.
