Lisa, Dan & the Fong boys - treatment required for Dan to overcome rare cancer

Canterbury

Hi all,

As you may or may not know, Dan Fong, Leece's husband, has recently been diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive cancer (just 10 cases in the world).

The past month has already been a tumultuous road for Dan, Leece and their four boys, as the doctors have worked tirelessly to figure out Dan's diagnosis.

With a rare and complex diagnosis comes a very aggressive treatment plan. One element of which is a stem cell transplant, requiring at least a four month stay in Brisbane, away from his home, his children and loved ones.

Many of you from this amazing community have approached us wanting to help. Here is one way in which you can help - of course ONLY if feasible for you at this time. Please understand we feel your support even if you're not in a position to donate.

To add, Leece has been on the fence about us doing this - about asking for help - but I have insisted she does, especially as I have had so many of you asking about ways in which you can help the family.

Thank you SO much for your love, offers to help and support so far. It has been overwhelming.

PS - please go and donate bone marrow if you can, and especially if you're Māori Chinese or Pacific Islander.

Cannot imagine how tough things are for you, the boys and the rest of the family right now. I know no words can ease any of your pain and struggle as you all fight your greatest fight. You are such a shining light and your mantra ‘you are stronger than you think you are’ has helped so many of us so I hope you can really believe in that mantra during this time. Thinking of you a lot.
