Richard and Katherine Haywood need your support!
Please give a little so that this caring family can focus their energy on a positive outcome.Canterbury
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.

First Richard and his family would like to thank everyone who has donated to the give a little or shared the page or has supported the family in some way.
They really appreciate your support and love you have shown.
Richard is about to hit the half way mark with treatment number 9 next week, however he has had some set backs and his treatment was put on hold for 2 weeks as he suffered some major side effects from the drug
After having an ultra sound and CT scan which both came back clear show no signs of tumors or lesions and the side effects passing treatment was started up again which means treatment is working
We still have a long 27 weeks to go with fatigue being the largest battle at the moment
Although there is a long way to go on this journey we are all very positive for what's to come.
