Jeff is a 23 yr old Master of Architecture student who is battling his 9th round of melanoma cancer since 2009


Hi, I'm Jeff (aka Patt), a 23 year old Masters student of Architecture living in Auckland with a passion for guitar, surfing and design. In 2009 I was diagnosed with melanoma, and have been battling a very aggressive form of cancer ever since. I have had over seven major surgeries, including three on my brain. Thank you for supporting me.

Now that the government has made funding available for Keytruda and Opdivo, Jeff no longer needs to pay for these immunotherapy treatments. However there are other ongoing costs associated with his illness, such as complementary drugs, integrated medicine treatments and pharmacy expenses; supplements and transport costs. Your donation will go straight to Jeff and help him pay for these costs.
