    Huge appreciation to all that have generously donated to help Sam and his whānau during this challenging journey.

    If you can share this page to others - we can give these efforts one final boost.

    This is an update from Tracey -

    Sam is now settled into Wellington Hospital, he has had a pre-transplant cycle of chemo therapy which took 7 days, The donor stem cells arrived in New Zealand from a young man in Germany and have been transplanted into Sam.

    Sam will be in isolation for a number of weeks while the transplant settles as he is very susceptible to infections.

    It will be a few months before he will be strong enough to come home to Otaki but is in good spirits, prepared for the tough road ahead and eager to get through this phase in order to return to all the people and things he loves."

      Hi Sam just thinking about you so hope you are doing well after your transplant...nearly 2 months since you had that and sounds like everything is doing what it should. Last update from Mum and Dad was you are doing well

      and your count going up so continue to do what you're doing so you can get back to Otaki with Tracey, your girls, Mum and Dad and the rest of your whanau.

      Kia Kaha Sam.

      Much love

      Jenny, Reg & Whanau.

    Nga mihi nunui ki a koutou mo to koutou tautoko.

    Sam is able to read all the comments - he is amazed and humbled.

    If I can ask everyone to Share this page far and wide - and on other social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter) - who knows what we can achieve in the remaining 10 weeks of Sam's Give-a-Little
