On Thursday 8 February 2024, Quinn was admitted to Starship Hospital where she was diagnosed with high risk acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Brynn, Jimmy and Quinn have had their world turned upside down and are navigating this news the best they can knowing they have a long fight ahead to recovery for their little girl.

Quinn will undergo chemotherapy and surgeries for the foreseeable future and will be in and out of Starship Hospital for treatment, monitoring and stabilisation of this cancer.

This page has been set up in the hopes of relieving the financial pressure Brynn and Jimmy will face due to long periods of leave from work while they care for Quinn full time.

On behalf of the Armstrong and Curran Whanau, we greatly appreciate any support you are able to offer in helping little Quinn fight this battle

Use of funds

The funds will be paid directly into Brynn and Jimmy’s account and be spent on the families regular bills, expenses and provide all that Quinn requires throughout this journey whilst allowing them to care for her without financial worry.

Update from Māmā and Pāpā  29 March 2024

Posted by: Brynn Armstrong

Hey everyone, a quick update on Quinn and her leukaemia journey 💚

We have successfully made it through the first phase of treatment, with the induction phase going to plan and her responding to treatment how she should. It's taken a big toll on her, as we are sure you can imagine, but she has been an absolute trooper and taking it all in her stride incredibly.

We are home from hospital now which has brought its own challenges, with no immune system, limited sleeping or eating, medication and supplement feeding through her nasal gastric tube, emergency hospital trips with overnight stays, and much more.

We are now on to the consolidation phase of treatment, with 2-3 trips to starship weekly, chemotherapy 4 days a week, and theatre once a week for lumbar punctures and intrathecal chemotherapy (into the spinal fluid).

It has taken a heavy toll on us as a family, but we are absolutely overwhelmed by the incredible love and support we have received from everyone. Words can't explain the gratitude we feel for everyone that has had our backs throughout this and helped us get through. For everyone who has contributed to the Give A Little, we are blown away by your generosity and can't thank you enough. We are sorry we aren't able to message everyone individually to say thank you.

We will keep giving updates where we can as things progress and do our best to respond to messages while we juggle work, hospital, and care for our baby girl.

Jimmy, Brynn, Quinn 💚💚💚
