Make it happen for Bill!
Bills Hodgkins Lymphoma won’t bugger off....let’s help Bill fulfill his wish list.Otago
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!

Use of funds
Flights for his 5 Swedish (Swiwi - half kiwi half Swedish) grandkids to come to NZ in November.
Any leftover funds will help Bill make short trips in NZ whilst the going is good.
I’ve never felt so humbled and grateful to people in the community that contributed. It’s hard to describe in words my real thoughts, I breakdown, as it overwhelms me, the generosity of everyone. Chemo hasn’t worked like we’d hoped and we’re going to have to let the lymphoma run it’s course (with some bloody good pain killers and the odd beer).
Your donations have meant my Swedish grandkids have been able to visit me and brighten up the last 3 weeks, which I am very grateful for.
I thought you might enjoy a few photos from their trip - one here and Billi will put some in the gallery.
