Please help me out with getting my life back together while going through rehab.

Main image

Hi my name is Mark Tanu, I was involved in a car crash on the 3rd of March 2019 back home in Wellington and currently in Christchurch Burwood Spinal Unit, I'm 29 yrs old and a sumo wrestler and representing NZ and now weighing at 220kg from 250kg.

I'm trying to raise funds to pay for transport as it cost me $155.00 one way to travel with Horizon Ambulance due to my weight and also my power wheelchair. This is all part of my rehab to get out into the community.

Learning how to eat, write my name, putting my clothes om, brushing my teeth, using my hands again and learning how to walk has been rough, but I have Faith that I would be able to walk out of Burwood Hospital again.

Please any donations will mean a lot and will help me and my family for the future too.

Thank you and God Bless

Use of funds

Main goal is to walk, money will be spent on travel and things I need till I get back ony feet.
