Bills Hodgkins Lymphoma won’t bugger off....let’s help Bill fulfill his wish list.

Main image

Bill is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma - an aggressive version that just won’t bugger off. He’s pretty keen to see his Swedish grandkids come hang out with him before he is to unwell if bloody cancer has its way.

Bill served 43 years as a Volunteer Fireman in Bluff, 16 years as Chief. He’s a bloody good bugger, who will stand up and speak up for what he believes in. He has a heart of gold and deserves this wish to be granted - please help us make it so!

Wow. What an incredible group of people. Your generosity has bought Dad to tears; not a sight I see very often. To every one of you, he tells a story, an anecdote, a part of his life that you have been part of.

We can’t express how much this means. 5 Swedish grandkids coming to NZ, all together (the first time ever all at once!). The chance to hang with their grandad, visit the kiwi half if their history, hear the stories and laugh together. The words don’t feel enough but ...from us all, especially Bill, thank you.

Love to you all, you amazing people.

Bill & Ngaire, Brandon & Malin (Marley, Louie, Anaiis, Li and Carmen) & Billi & Sam (Jude + Charlie)
