    Heey everyone, I’m keeping this page open to keep everyone updated on baby kaan cause we receive so much donations I want to keep everyone informed about kaan, we do not expect anyone to donate anymore, we just want to keep in touch with everyone. Kaan is doing absolutely amazing, he the best little boy ever he still getting his injection every 2nd day, he now 9 months old wow 🤩 He got the best personality ever he rolling around everywhere now, he still not wanting to take bottle or food yet but that is okay he gaining weight so that out main focus, with everything going on in the world with the new virus my main goal now is keeping kaan safe as his immune system isn’t the best, pharmac is still funding kaan medication, he up for review in May so fingers crossed they continue to fund it for him but if they were to stop funding it we would completely understand considering the crisis that’s going on at the moment! But thanks to you guys we will have enough to fund him his injections. We love every single one of you that have donated to kaan and who has followed him since he was 3 weeks old ❤️

      I’m so impressed with you.....keeping us informed even when donating isn’t necessary is great.

      He is a gorgeous wee boy and looks very happy and loved.

      I know you will keep him safe and I look forward to your next update. Best wishes Jeni.

      What a gorgeous, happy little man Kaan is. Congratulations on all your hard work to have him looking so well and happy. Prayers that Pharmac will continue funding his medication, and blessings on you for being so willing to forego this funding if necessary. Thanks for the update, please continue them.

    Hey everyone, so update on baby kaan he 6 months wooow time has gone to fast!! He still getting his injection every 2nd day and this drug is a miracle drug it saved his life! Yay!! Pharmac are still funding it we not sure for how long as we have to keep reapplying but we staying hopefully the drug is over $20000 a month, so all the money we have raised is in a bank account for kaan for when they stop funding it we can get him some more cause we been told they won’t fund it forever which is completely understandable but when they stop we be ready causes thank to you all On a brighter note kaan doing amazing he is thriving this boy so happy!!

      That's great news! Will be interesting to hear what Pharmac say when the day comes that they want to stop funding.

      Hello beautiful kaan, hello beautiful family!

      I'm Merve, from Turkey. My little brother(12) is also suffering from hypophosphatasia. As you know, the treatment process is very difficult because the drug is very expensive. So I set up an health association for patients like my brother in Turkey. I want to research the stories of all patients suffering from this disease. I saw kaan while researching the news. kaan is a very beautiful baby, I wish you a very long and beautiful life. I want to announce your story, so I want to put kaan as a news at if you allow.

      You can send an e-mail to to contact me.

      Yours truly

    Hey everyone, I just wanna take the time out to say to you all how great full and so loved by each and ever single one you, You are all wonderful people and I appreciate your love, kindness, support, and generosity. Thank you! As you all know that we got the news that $10000 wasn’t quite enough for kaan treatment, and we honestly didn’t want anymore people to donate as we already got so much from everyone and we felt that Nz and the world already did so much for us so thank you all again who continue to donate You all have inspired us during this difficult time You cannot imagine how much strength your support has given me during this difficult time. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and your words of encouragement to everyone that has reach out donated to kaan, the funds will be put in kaan own bank account till we know more about this medication process and about the funding, we should hopefully no more within the next few weeks we have along road ahead of us and I will be sure to keep you all update!! Much love to every single one of you ❤️❤️❤️

      Tracey and Matthew , I hope everything works out and baby Kaan gets to have an awesome Kiwi upbringing !! When I first read of your plight , I thought , " No way can they fight for that baby`s life without good old Kiwi help !!" I`m so glad the funding was enough . Let us know if you need more please. Love and hugs R. Oliver.
