  • One Month of Treatment Costs Raised!      13 January 2019
    Main image

    Thank you all so much! So far we have raised one month's worth of treatment costs, or enough to relocate and live in Auckland for just over a month, or enough to assist mum in travelling to and from Auckland without having to worry about how much leave she takes from work.

    Your generosity has been overwhelming. Dad's been pretty tired and low in energy the last few weeks and the tiredness has been increasing. He's done his best and returned to work for 3 days last week. He battled it out but it was pretty hard on him. He will never admit it. He went fishing with a mate of his who decided to pull him out of the house for the day. This was good for him. He hadn't been for a while!

    Normality in a time like this is a good thing, despite how low in energy and 'less than normal' he may feel.

    Again, thank you all for your support and generosity during this time. It's far exceeded my expectations, considering when I told the brothers I was thinking of setting up this page, it was a passing comment, almost a joke; and it almost didn't happen. So seriously, thank you. Let's keep it going!

  • Birthday Celebrations     03 January 2019

    Not long after Christmas, 4 days after.... Since 1990, my birthday has been celebrated. This one was no exception. It was so nice to see dad smiling and simply 'being there' with everyone around. It was a time for everyone to look back at the last 28 years of my life, but also to catch up with dad before he starts his rigorous journey.

  • Christmas with Family!      03 January 2019
    Main image

    Like almost every other person around the world, on the 25th of December we were lucky enough to celebrate Christmas as a family. It was the first Christmas in a long time where I wasn't working Christmas day. Despite the news Dad got the night before, he was still able to share in the celebrations and show a smile or two.
