Relief to ease the financial pressures of everyday life, gifting the freedom to enjoy each day to the fullest while fighting for a future.

Papakura, Auckland

Roman is 27yrs old. In Late November 2022 he was diagnosed with a very rare & aggressive cancer - DSRCT Sarcoma. Which is located in the abdomen.

Roman endured months of pain and discomfort while working ,eventually forcing him to wear his tool belt around his neck. Multiple trips to A&E and to the hospital resulted in being discharged prematurely, after conducting many different tests. Once the seriousness of the situation was realised, a PET scan showed the tumour that began in his abdomen, had now spread to his liver & spleen resulting in a stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

Now facing the fight for his future, Roman has his second round of chemo under way with many more cycles lined up. With his typical calm humble nature, he maintains a strong positive attitude, that is inspiring.

He is a genuine kind loving man - all the qualities that make for an amazing partner, son, brother & friend.

From all of us that can't imagine a world without him, we appeal to YOU to join us in showing support while he is on this journey & unable to continue working as the talented builder we know him to be.

Let's alleviate the financial pressures & responsibilities of everyday life, gifting him the freedom to focus all energy in to winning his battle & continue appreciating every precious moment life may bring.
