Please help us support our aunty Liga. A mother to 3 boys (7, 11 & 17yrs) and a much loved family woman.

2020 was a challenging and testing year for us all. For aunty Liga, it was also the year she was diagnosed with Sarcomatoid Renal Cell Carcinoma - a rare and aggressive kidney cancer.

Because it is a rare cancer, the few therapy options available for aunty Liga are not funded by the government. We have been quoted $94,425 for the recommended treatment. We would humbly appreciate any contributions to help her get the treatment she so desperately needs.

Despite enduring this pain for years with no diagnosis until November 2020, aunty Liga has been a pillar in our family. She gives willingly, loves fiercely and serves her family, church and elders, whole-heartedly.

We hope to reach anyone who is willing and able to contribute to her treatment, to help ease the financial stress on our uncle and little brothers. Please help us give our aunty a fighting chance to watch her boys grow up.

From the bottom of our hearts, faafetai tele lava.

Alofaaga, Taliau family.

Today, Thursday 14 Jan, aunty was discharged from the hospital after being in for 3 nights. After more testing, her doctors have let us know they no longer believe the therapy we are fundraising for will help. This page will remain open with no goal for donations, but will go towards general financial assistance for our uncle and little brothers. We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for sharing and donating, and especially for the well wishes, thoughts and prayers for our family, especially aunty Liga. We will also contact donors individually regarding their donations. For now we are keeping her steady and comfortable, hoping for the best and relying on God. Our aunty Liga is a fighter, with faith that can conquer anything, her strength encourages us all. We pray for God's love and blessings to be showered upon you all. Faafetai, faafetai, faafetai tele lava.
