“Mate pukupuku, e kore au e tūohu, tūohu korekore ake nei!”

Ko te whai a te tumuaki he whakahaere i ngā taupeka katoa o te kura, e ringa huti ai, e wae totoro ai, e kikopuku ai te whāinga nui!

Kei taku tumuaki, kei te hoa ngangare i roto i ngā tau, mōu te whakaaronui o te tangata kua uta mai nei!

Sam at the beginning of May was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, or AML, a type of cancer that affects the bone marrow and blood. it is known as acute as the condition can progress rapidly.

Sam's best option is likely to be a bone marrow transplant - this will require Sam to move from Palmerston North to Wellington Hospital and remain in hospital for some months.

Sam Doyle, with his previous sporting experiences (as a Hurricane, Māori All Black etc.) and his profession both as a teacher and more recently Tumuaki of Te Kura-a-iwi o Whakatupuranga Rua Mano has always been a significant contributor to both educational and sporting kaupapa.

About us

The Trust's focus is to provide for the educational development of youth within the ART confederation area.

Use of funds

Funds will assist with providing any necessities for Sam, as well as supporting the immediate whānau with extra costs such as kai, transport and accommodation costs while he battles AML.
