    Sorry for the delay in updates. Firstly thank you so much for your continuing donations ...heartfelt thanks to all of you.

    Jill hit a bit of a speed bump at the scheduled treatment last Friday. She has had some pretty gnarly side affects that have hit her hard. Unable to have treatment last week she has stayed in Auckland for an extra week. We travelled to Whangarei yesterday and thank goodness was able to have the IV chemo today. She is still pretty fragile but on the up with her determination and positivity. This is hard for both her and Reece and hopefully we are on the upward climb. I am going to post a graphic pic of Jill. It is shit but it is real. It is her journey and she really is so thankful for this opportunity to kick this cancer the best she can. This is a tough road but one she is willing to ride as long as it takes. Never ever give up hope...xx

  • Treatment 3     16 August 2019

    Well another treatment down and Jill is feeling really good. The week leading up to treatment wasnt so kind with Jill experiencing nausea and a mouthful of severe ulcers which caused a lot of pain and discomfort. However the week gone since treatment has been fabulous with another Vit C infusion. It's thanks to all you amazing people that's allowing Jill to keep living life and to enjoy and appreciate the small things in life that mean the most. One of those things so important to Jill is a daily walk with her girl Harper. Thank you all xx

    Hi everyone, Jill had to shelve out $5405.00 for two (yes only two) non funded prescription drugs for her Beacon CRC Triplet Therapy that will last her one month. Unbelievable, if she had being diagnosed with Melanoma these would be funded!! Next week Jill is travelling to Whangarei to have her treatment and a consultation with her Oncologist. Jill is such an inspiration, her fighting spirit never waivers. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your donations and kind words...

  • Still Smiling...     12 July 2019

    Hi everyone, yesterday after a four hour delay due to fog in Auckland, Jill finally arrived late for her first appointment. So this morning she has had her Portacath put in and is at this moment having her first lot of cocktails. (not Margueritas unfortunately) Jill is one of many with CRC lucky enough to get on the Beacon Triplet Phase 3 trial for colorectal cancer. Two of the three drugs are unfunded and your donations help immensely. She's feeling great, sitting like lady muck, chomping on the bit to get out of the chair and do something. Still smiling and so thankful to you all that have helped. Jill will be in Auckland and or Whangarei every two weeks until such time as needed. Thanks again we love you all xx

  • A little thank you personally from Jill to you all xx     1 July 2019

    The genorosity of people truly blows me away and Im so thankful to each and everyone of you 💕 thank you from the bottom of my heart. Im looking at privately funded treatment as the publicly funded options are not of any help to me now. I will also need to base myself elsewhere to access these drugs/clinic, so your genorosity is so much appreciated. I cant express enough love and thanks to each and everyone of you.
