Let's help Ness beat Cancer
Hastings, Hawke's Bay
Our amazing friend, sister, daughter, mother, Nan and beloved partner Vanessa, after a clear mammogram in May, was then only 6 weeks later diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of breast cancer.
Vanessa was widowed at the young age of 28 with 4 young children, she raised her children by herself whilst managing to obtain a degree which has led to her dream job in working with people with disabilities, so we know she has the strength to fight this.
Things have moved pretty quickly since diagnosis and Ness has just completed her third round of Chemo. After Christmas there will hopefully be surgery and then more rounds of chemo. The next round is sadly not funded but if she is able to do it, it will increase her chances dramatically.
The cost of this treatment is approx $25k.
For those that know Ness, you know she will fight this all the way, whether it be on the netball court or fighting for the rights of people with disabilities (or anyone for that matter) Ness will come out guns blazing and never give up.
So lets join forces and give this amazing, caring, strong and stubborn friend of ours the best support we can, you know she'd do it for you.
All funds are being paid directly to Ness, any funds not used directly on treatment Ness will be donating to Breast Cancer Research.
