    Caitlin asks

    Hi Sue, my name is Caitlin. I’m conducting a study at the University of Auckland on the use of crowdfunding platforms to fund health-related costs in New Zealand. I’m hoping to speak with people with experience of setting up and managing a Givealittle page on behalf of a loved one. I understand this will be a time of immense pressure for all involved, but I’m also aware this may be a topic close to your heart, and I believe your contribution to the project would be really valuable. If you are open to participating or would like more information, please email me confidentially at cneu868@aucklanduni.ac.nz. Participation would involve a conversational interview at a time/place convenient to you. To thank participants for their time, each will receive a $30 voucher. Thanks and best wishes. Approved by the University of Auckland Human Participants Ethics Committee on 11th June 2019 for three years, Reference Number 023136.

    Kendall asks

    Good morning, Sue. Sorry to hear about Derek's terminal cancer. Stuff would like to run a story about Derek's diagnosis and the details about the fundraiser. What would be the best number to reach you or Veronica on? Thanks in advance, Kendall Hutt - reporter, stuff.co.nz.
