Fundraising for Ka'iulani's cancer treatment in Spain starting August 2018.

Main image

Ka'iulani has shown some positive signs to reducing the spread of the neuroblastoma cancer disease that is throughout her body from treatment in NZ and Australia, since being diagnosed in December 2016.

She has now been approved by a New York hospital that is receiving good results on a new treatment, to join the stage 2 clinical trial through their sister hospital in Barcelona. The treatment is the best option worldwide, to reduce and eradicate Ka'iulani's cancer from her body, and takes 6 months to complete.

Starting August 2018, Ka'iulani will be heading to Barcelona with a rotating crew of family support for the 6 months. Coming home in September for 2 weeks to meet her sibling due for birth at that time.

The treatment costs $260k plus additional costs for flights and accommodation. Fortunately we have received so much loving support worldwide to already have raised the bulk of the costs with just $65k more required.

We are so happy with the strength and positivity of our little girl and are excited about the chance this treatment will give her to living a long healthy life!
