Renee’s breast cancer was bad enough. But brain cancer is even worse, as she can no longer work to help support her family.

Hi there. I am so sorry for your recent news. I was wondering if you have heard of Professor Charlie Teo based in Australia? He is a maverick in the field of neurosurgery and he saved the life of a friends partner whom had been told he had terminal brain tumours and noone in NZ would operate. They raised $100k and got to have the surgery just in time. Hes comprehensive, controversial and aggressive in his approach but has saved many peoples lives or bought them a lot more time than prognosis by others. Maybe just maybe he can do something where other surgeons won't. Just felt I needed to share this info. Apologies if I have stepped over a line....but wishing you the very best of care and love. Xx
