Help Rachel beat the odds in her second fight against cancer and give her more time with her family and friends who love her so dearly

Rachel is 32 years young about to face her second fight against cancer.

Rachel is a loved Wife of Greg, Step Mum, Daughter, Daughter in law, Sister, Niece, Cousin and Aunty.

Rachel always brings a smile to the face of those around her as her laugh and wit are infectious.

Rachel beat a severe bout of cervical cancer back in 2014 and has since been enjoying a cancer free life living it to the fullest and making every moment count.

Early November 2018 things took a turn when she and her family received the devastating news that an unexplained pain was in fact an aggressive cancerous growth that has spread through muscle to her spine and one of her kidneys. While treatment will help to prolong her young life - the diagnosis is that sadly, it cannot be cured.

Rachel is due to start treatments this month, determined to fight again.

Some of the treatment options available are not funded and Greg & Rachel are looking at costs of up to $60,000 as well as travel and accommodation costs from their home in Invercargill to Dunedin and further afar.

This page has been set up with Rachel and Greg’s blessing.

Rachel means the world to a number of people, and any extra time with her is a gift.

Thank you so sincerely for any support

Update #5  5 June 2019

Hey everyone,

So good news in from my scan last week! After a nervous wait we found out today that the Cancer is contained still.. main tumour in Psoas muscle has shrunk a bit and it's gone from liver! Dr is happy !! So we are happy!

I have a follow up again in 6 weeks with her after a few more sessions of the maintenance chemotherapy at Mercy hospital in Dunedin!!

Still having to go up there every 3 weeks is tiring but at least we know it’s working at containing this beast so will keep at it for sure , there is always someone worse off!

Also had a lovely afternoon at the cancer society Look Good Feel Better day today where we got pampered and given lots of makeup and advice on how to make ourselves look and ultimately feel better whilst fighting the cancer battle!!

So I’m feeling pretty flash with eyebrows again haha 🤣 thanks to everyone who donates to this LGFB through farmers stores it totally makes a difference in woman’s lives as I seen today lots of smiles and laughter around the room! 😁

Thanks everyone for your continued support, means a lot

Luv Rach
