  • Happy 39th Birthday Paul. Rest in Love our Brother     06 November 2015

    Our beloved Paul passed away today on his 39th birthday in his beautiful wife Gesina's arms.

    From The Bennet Girls and all his extended family, we are truly grateful for all your love and support over this time.

    He was a fighter right til the very end.

    We know he is in a better place and no longer in pain.

    2 Timothy chapter 4 verse 6 and 7

    For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

    I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

    Rest in Love Our Brother xo

  • Another tumour detected     03 August 2015

    My brother in law Paul has been in hospital for a couple of weeks now. After recently having a tumour on his lung, eyelid and his spleen removed, he now has another growth on his other lung which has been leaking fluid and filling up his lung causing him breathing difficulties. On the first few days they were draining 4litres of fluid from his lung coming from the cancer. He has been allowed home a few hours in the first week to spend some time with Gesina and his girls but today will start treatment which is not funded.

    We are so thankful for the support thus given so far and the money raised has already helped cover his first treatments, and he will start a treatment that is also not funded that costs over $2000 a week.

    We ask for your continue support on Paul's road to recovery. I know this hasn't been easy for them and Gesina and his girls are really missing their dad right now.

    Please continue to share his page with family and friends. Every little bit helps.

  • Thank you for your Support      23 May 2015
    Main image

    We would like to express our gratitude to all family and friends who have kindly donated to Paul Bennett's fund. We are thankful for people who have made sacrifices to hold separate fundraisers for Paul. For those who have given food vouchers and helped babysit their children we appreciate your support.

    As not all cancer treatment is funded, the money will help recover costs for some treatment Paul had in the beginning of May. Some treatment can cost tens of thousands to try and it's sad to see many who have the will to live but no funds to help them, suffer.

    Paul has recently had his spleen removed, and is booked in for surgery to remove a tumour at the top of his right lung June.

    After that, surgeons will remove a small lump from one of his eyelids.

    Paul plans to use some of the money donated to fund two treatment options. The first (CTC testing) will cost upwards of $5,000 AUD and the other (gcMAF / DBPMAF) will cost over $1,500 NZD per round and it's unclear how many rounds of treatment will be needed until after treatment starts.

    CTC testing may help the selection of drug for any future chemotherapy to be much more accurate and effective. gcMAF treatment may help Paul's own immune system to be able to fight the cancer on it's own, without needing chemotherapy.

    Many thanks for your ongoing support xo
