In August this 2020 we learned that Richard has stage 3 Melanoma. Richard has undergone surgery and now needs treatment at a cost exceeding $105,000 over the next 12 months.

While this treatment has a high success rate, it is not funded and this family cannot afford to proceed without support. There are also ongoing living expenses as Richard needs to take some time time out from his job.

Richard and Katherine are bravely looking forward, hoping for a cure, while raising their two lovely kids, Blake aged 12 years and Olivia 9.

This family has provided amazing support and friendship to our family during adversity. We want to help in any way we can, starting with a reach out for aid towards this huge financial burden.
