Help our wonderful mate Hamish with his recovery from cancer.

As you may know Mish has had emergency surgery for intestinal cancer. He went in on Tuesday for diagnostic tests and was rushed to surgery immediately. We are waiting to find out what the Surgeons found, but right now he's in post surgery recovery - and a lot of pain.

We are hoping that the surgery was a success and that his recovery will be swift, but he may have a long journey ahead. He hasn't been able to work for weeks and doesn't have close friends there to help once he gets out of hospital.

This Givealittle page is about trying to do whatever we can to help him financially when we're not there to help him physically.

Many of us have voiced that perhaps he should come home to recover, however Mish's reason for living is his beautiful daughter, Avery, so he is adamant that he needs to be there. We can only hear and respect his wishes on this, and do what we can to support him in his time of need.

It's times like this that we realise how much of a difference we can make to the quality of life of a wonderful person like Mish at a desperate time in his life.

As anyone who knows Mish knows, he's a great guy with a cheeky grin, a warm heart and a wicked sense of humour. I feel lucky to call Mish a good friend, as I know many others do too and we wouldn't wish what he's going through on anyone.

If you are able to Give a little please do.

Latest update

Update 4  11 July 2019

Hi all, Justin, Mish's brother is with him at the moment in hospital. Here's the latest update from Justin:

"Thanks to all the generous donors who have contributed to this for us. After many ups and downs over the last week, Hamish is still in hospital getting over the post op infection. He hopes to be home in the next 10 days.

Many people have been working behind the scenes to get a smooth transition for Hamish. This has not been an easy task,

Hamish has a good appetite and should continue to regain strength. He is looking much better than 2 weeks ago.

We are still waiting on a Pet scan to determine if there is any cancer still in his system. But at this point we are concentrating on beating the post op infection first."

So, Mish is still fighting the infection and has a way to go yet, but knowing that he has the support of friends and family all round the world is huge.

Thanks again, and if you can keep sharing this page, that would be awesome!

Until next time.
