Mother, wife, loyal friend & colleague is battling a neurodegenerative disorder Multiple System Atrophy which affects the nervous system.

Our dear friend and colleague. Levonne, has been diagnosed with a rare neurodegenerative disorder called Multiple System Atrophy or MSA, which affects the nervous system.

Mother to seven year-old Zane and wife of Andrew for nearly 15 years, Levonne is beginning to find the simplest tasks like school pick-ups and walking the dog are getting more and more difficult. She has begun experiencing problems with her balance, speech and coordination. Because of this, Levonne has made the tough decision to take extended sick leave from her employer HP, where she has worked for the last 18 years.

Whilst Levonne has a strong support system with her husband and son, as well as her two sisters and dad, the expense and effort of her rehabilitation care is a constant worry for her. In addition, the possibility of no longer working has her concerned over the family’s financial future.

That’s why we have developed this page to support Levonne and her family. We are hoping to raise enough money to pay off her mortgage so that she can concentrate on the therapies and treatments needed to get her better. This will also provide peace of mind for the family’s future and ensure that no matter what happens, Zane will be able to grow up in his family home.

Levonne has supported so many of us throughout our lives, which is why we want to offer her and her family our support. We hope you can help support Levonne as well.

Emma Payne's involvement (page creator)

A group of us at HP New Zealand got together to support Levonne who is not only a colleague, but a dear friend. We want to do something to help her and her family during this difficult time. We have her agreement/approval to set-up this page on her behalf.

Team Effort: ASB Auckland Marathon  1 November 2019

On 20 October, the team from HP organised to run the ASB Auckland Marathon to raise money for Levonne. We successfully increased our donations and are now nearly at $13k!

The incredible generosity of the community has had a huge impact on Levonne and her family. It's helped them to stay inspired and positive during these challenging times and has allowed Levonne to work with specialist practitioners to help her on her journey.

Because of the help of so many, Levonne has been able to work with a Naturopath/Nutritionist/Herbalist and attend physio sessions at the North Shore Hospital twice a week. She's also been able to work with a kinesiologist, chiropractor and functional neurologist.

We still have a ways to go before we meet our total goal, but it is inspiring to know that the outpouring of love and support has had a massive impact. We will continue to share how your donations are helping Levonne and her family.

Thank you!
