Kia Ora friends of John & Karen,

We are raising money to help out with a tough situation. John has started his fight and treatment with a serious medical issue, grade 4 Glioblastoma. He has to focus on this 100% and is not able to work. Karen is being amazing in supporting John while working, keeping the house afloat, etc.

Money won't heal John's medical situation but it will help out greatly to take away a major source of stress. Please help out as best you can and show John & Karen some love during this very trying time.

You've likely had your fare share of "experiences" with John. We love this man even when that "experience" may not have been quite what you had hoped for e.g. <insert some nastiness!>. Even so, if there is one thing we ALL know it's that John has the biggest of hearts. If you were in need, he would be the first bloke on your doorstep to help you out (and put a large divot in your beer fridge - oh yeah, the nectar!).

Let's help our mates John & Karen get through this.

Kia ora, kia kaha me te aroha motuhake ki nga tangata katoa

(Thank you, stand strong and special love to all)

John, Al and Roddy
