Kooge's funeral fund

Kooge has inoperable and untreatable brain cancer and is raising funds for his funeral.

Dear family, friends, fans of our much loved Kooge. As you know he has been fighting glioblastoma (brain cancer) for 3 years now - which is amazing as the usual life expectancy for glioblastoma is 1.5 years.

Unfortunately, Kooge has just received the awful awful news that there is a new tumour which is inoperable and untreatable, and doctors have informed him that the only option left is to let the cancer run its course.

Kooge's main priority now is to make sure that his family is not left with the financial burden of his funeral. They need to be focused on quality time now, not worrying about things like this.

Please help our friend (and his family) one last time with any financial assistance you can give in order to ensure that his amazing mum and sisters can say goodbye without worrying about money.

Posted by: Rebecca Parkes

♥️ 26/01/1984 - 16/07/2020 ♥️

It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of our beloved Mike who passed away peacefully early hours this morning surrounded by love.

You fought a good fight, you ran a good race. Dad is waiting for you in heaven with open arms. May God Bless you our darling, we will always love you.

As Mike would say... “like a good movie you all played an important part, but now it’s come to an end. Thanks for the Oscar, roll the credits, over and out”.

We would like to acknowledge all Mike’s treasured family, friends and followers for the outpouring of love and support during his journey.
