Mighty Maxs Fight !
Supporting Nick and Liz through Max's Bone Marrow TransplantCanterbury
Maxs fight against Rare Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome.
On the 6th December 2019, at only 3 months old and numerous hospital visits Max was diagnosed with Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome (WAS).
WAS is a genetically inherited immunodeficiency disease, a very serious, rare disorder, affecting only a few males in New Zealand.
Max is at risk of serious infections as he has little immunity. His platelets drop so low he actively bleeds. Max has eczema that can quickly turn into skin infections.
There is only one known treatment. This is a Bone Marrow Transplant which can only be done in Starship Hospital in Auckland. As soon as a match is found, we will be travelling and staying in Auckland for as long as it takes for the new bone marrow to take and start working.
It would be a great help if we help financially so Nick can spend as much time in Auckland with his family while Max has Chemo and the transplant. Nick is self employed, and if he isn’t at work then Liz and Nick are going to struggle to meet their financial obligations.
Kirsty Rowlands' involvement (page creator)
Liz is my sister, and her son is very ill with a rare immunodeficiency. I want to raise money for their travel, any treatment costs and to help as she cannot return to work
Use of funds
Funds raised will go towards to accomodation, travel and living costs during treatment while up in starship. Mortgage and financial costs.
