Please help support Huntar Sammons (10yrs old) and his family while he fights late stage Burkitt Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma & spinal nerve damage.
On Friday 8th April 2016, Huntar Sammons was flown from Wellington to Christchurch Hospital after an MRI showed large masses on his brain.
After spinal fluid and bone marrow testing, it was found that Huntar was in the later stages of Burkitt Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. For the past 5 months, Huntar and his mother have been inpatient at Christchurch Hospital away from their home in Upper Hutt.
The treatment was aggressive and has ultimately caused damage to his spinal nerves. He is currently unable to walk and is now in Auckland in order to go through rehabilitation to see if the specialists can get him on his feet again.
His parents, Michelle and Rick are trying to remain at their sons side as much as they can, however, this battle is financially hard when one parent is unable to work and must stay with Huntar at all times. The cost of travelling between cities and the bills at home continue to mount. We need to help them through this nightmare. So whatever you can spare would be greatly appreciated until they can get their little boy home and healthy again.
