Dad. The most caring, helpful and selfless man I know needs your help. He would never ask. So I am.

Main image

As the title probably explains, Mike is my dad, along with my three other siblings. This year, the night before Christmas in fact, we found out that he has one of the rarest forms of kidney cancer. The big 'C'. He's been given some time to take a crack at treatment involving targeted radiotherapy and a course of medication over three months which disappointingly enough cost around $9000 a month and is not funded in any way here in NZ. We are from Hamilton and dad will be having to relocate to Auckland so that he can receive treatment each day.

Dad is the type of guy who would never ask for help. So I'm asking for him. I'm just taking a shot in the dark for one of the most important people in my life. I want to give him a fighting chance at this without him having to worry too much about the finances. No amount is too much if it means dad gets to atleast try and survive that bit longer, but like I say, I want to be able to take that burden of money worry from him and my incredible mother. Its not the news we were hoping for this Christmas, but it's the news we got. Any amount donated would be greatly appreciated. He's a bloody top bloke and would help anyone if the tables were turned.

Use of funds:

Funds will be used to help fund the course of medication and targeted radiotherapy treatment up in Auckland. Any suplus will be used to support mum with travel costs to and from Auckland as required. If things don't go to plan, funds will go to charity.
