Nathan has a cancerous growth on his throat and cannot perform. Your generosity gives him peace of mind for his family during recovery.

Main image

New Zealand music legend Nathan Haines was recently diagnosed with cancer of the larynx and will be unable to perform or work for some time.

His final operation was on December 27 after two previous operations removed some of the large tumour which was partially blocking his airway. Nathan had been experiencing difficulty swallowing or eating recently.

After the operation he will have radiology.

Having to cancel all his performances indefinitely at his busiest time of year is a huge blow to the Haines family, and like many New Zealand entertainers he lives from show to show with little ongoing security.

At this stage the cancer is localised though it has spread to two lymph nodes which are also being removed.

Nathan is feeling very positive and visualising a complete recovery, and doctors at Auckland Hospital are confident they will be able to completely remove the tumour

For the day to day support and security of Nathan's family and to contribute to ongoing living costs.
