In Memory of Viv Matheson

$3,562 donated
Given by 36 generous donors in around 3 months

Anyone who knew Viv would know she was always the first to help others and we hope that by donating we can follow in her footsteps.


"Sadly our darling Viv lost her battle with Neuroendocrine Cancer on the 29th of April 2021.

Those familiar with her journey may know that she was scheduled to receive treatment for this rare form of cancer in Melbourne which is known as PRRT, however COVID had other plans. The Unicorn Foundation of New Zealand were instrumental in the fight to bring this treatment to New Zealand so people like Viv would not miss out on this form of treatment and as such we would like to contribute to their cause so that others can benefit.

Anyone who knew Viv would know she was always the first to help others and we hope that by donating we can follow in her footsteps. "

Permission to create this donation page for Viv in lieu of flowers was granted by Viv's daughter, Alisa Matheson.
