Help Vikki fight Melanoma Cancer

Cancer Support Week Cancer Treatment In Need

This page was created to support my sister Vikki after it was discovered a previously removed melanoma had spread cancer to her liver. After being diagnosed in February this year Keytruda was the only viable treatment option for Vikki but it came at a hefty cost of $11,000 every 3 weeks.

I'd like to express my most sincere gratitude to all of you that donated we raised over $40,000 in just a few months. We are and will always be so incredibly grateful to you all.

A special thank you goes out to the wider melanoma community of New Zealand that worked so hard to see a treatment for melanoma publicly funded - now we have two.

Vikki's treatment has had to stop for the time being as her liver had become inflamed while on Keytruda.

After several emails from people still wanting to help Vikki out it was decided to keep this page open. Any additional funds raised will assist Vikki while she is unable to work.

Thank you to everyone for your love and support.
