Rhianna & Daeshaun's Journey

Hi my name is Rhianna and I am a 17yr old Mum to Daeshaun. I have cancer that has spread to my lungs which there is currently no cure for.

Hawke's Bay

Hi my name is Rhianna I'm seventeen years old and a mum to my beautiful son Daeshaun.

I was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Adamantinoma in 2012 following an operation to remove the bone in my leg a metal rod was put in its place. I was clear from cancer and continued with my life.

In 2015 I was told the cancer had moved into my lungs and because it's such a rare form there was little chance of finding a cure. At the end of last year I was blessed to have a son and he is my world.

I have been asked several times if I have a 'Give a Little' page for donations which I haven't had until now as I don't like to ask for things.

I have recently been told that finding a cure for my Cancer is like "finding a needle in a haystack" and because of this I need your help not just for me but to put my mind at ease that his schooling and his upbringing will be a beautiful one. I thank everyone who is donating. I cannot explain how greatful I am.

Rhianna & Daeshaun. ❤️

Use of funds

I have decided to set up a page to help me make memories with my son and live our lives with as much fun and happiness while I'm well enough to enjoy it.

Funds will be used for a holiday for me and my son and anything on our bucket list we want to do!

Thank you to everyone who is helping to make memories on our journey.

Rhianna and Daeshaun

Hi Rhianna, I am also a cancer patient but lucky to be able to go thru surgery to remove the cancerous tumour. I wish you all the best and believe in yourself to fight the battle.
