Family Support Sick Kids Employment Support

It is with heavy hearts that the workmates of Brendan and Raukawa Comerford announce that their family is in need of our assistance. Brendan and Raukawa are a hard working couple supporting their four children, including youngest, 3yo Jacob. Earlier this year Brendan was diagnosed with bowel cancer and is presently off work recovering from his operation. Chemotherapy is pending. As if the family did not have enough to cope with, baby Jacob in the last few days has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. This necessitated his urgent transfer from Wellington to Christchurch to receive critical treatment.

Consequently, the family has relocated to Christchurch at very short notice to support Jacob for the duration of his operation and recovery. Brendan has also commenced his further treatment in Christchurch too.

Ronald McDonald house will take care of the family's needs for the immediate future, but thereafter the family will need to independently see to themselves. Time spans and outcomes are uncertain with substantial costs a certainty.

Your generous donation will help pay for transportation costs for the family of 6 going between Wellington & Christchurch where both Brendan and Jacob are undergoing treatment. It will also help cover bills and home care support while both parents are unable to work so they can care for thier family while focusing on recovery and rehabilitation for Brendan and Jacob.

Please support the Comerford's in their time of need.
