Rory needs cancer treatment that is not funded in New Zealand.

Main image

Over Easter Rory Leonard received the shocking news that he had pancreatic cancer, that had metastasised to his spine. This news turned the Leonard's lives upside down. Rory started radiation and chemotherapy straight away but the chemo isn't giving the results required to ease the immense pain that he is in every day. Following Foundation One genomic profiling and advice from his oncologist, Rory is beginning a new treatment that is not funded in New Zealand and is hugely expensive (starting at $5000 per month for the initial regimen). We want to help this incredible family as much as we can and all the money raised will be for them to use as they need.

If you are able and willing, your donation would be so thankfully received.
