Sloan family’s brain tumour journey
- $22,532.00 donated
- 269 generous donors
Andrew has a tumour which occupies a large section of his brain. All money raised will support Andrew, his wife and three boys.
Andrew Sloan, an avid sportsman, fell off his bike in November last year. During his recovery, a Wanaka specialist organised a MRI scan for him. This scan, in February, uncovered something Andrew and his wife Cherie hadn’t expected - an aggressive cancerous brain tumour. This tumour occupies a large section of Andrew’s brain and the journey ahead for their family looks unclear. There will be surgeries and follow through chemotherapy and radiation. Andrew is a Year 8 teacher at Mount Aspiring College in Wanaka, and he, wife Cherie and their three ‘monkeys’ Oscar, Charlie and Harry have had to move back to Dunedin indefinitely. Any funds raised will support them whilst they live their uncertain journey.
Use of Funds:
Every day living costs. Being away from home, as well as still having to pay a mortgage and rates can be financially ruining.
