My 8yr old moko Nehemiah Awatere has been diagnosed with Medduloblastoma a cancerous tumour on the brain. 😢 Our beautiful whanau live in Wainuiomata and have been calling Christchurch hospital home for the last 2 weeks. This family of 5 have been hit with some very sad news that no one ever deserves to go through.

Message From Karise (Nehemiah’s Mum)

-Thursday morning the doctors came to see us and said the biopsy results have come back and they finally have a answer for us . Nehemiah has been diagnosed medulloblastoma cancer . The neurosurgeon is pretty sure he has removed it all, but Nehemiah will have a lumbar puncture to see if he has any cancerous cells in his spinal fluid . He will be put to sleep for that . In 4-5 weeks Miah will start 7 weeks radiation treatment from Monday to Friday and have a brake over each weekend . He will eventually start 4 months of chemotherapy to make sure he has kicked cancers butt . We have a long road a head of us but I’m sure he’s got this, he’s super tough and super brave. With all the love and support we have I’m sure we got this too . Thank you for all the prayers and love and support we have received and continue to get . Your messages are uplifting during this speed bump in our lives.”

We would really appreciate any donation you are able to give to help with this fight to Kick Cancers Butt!
