$11,905 donated

Providing support and comfort to Katie, Josh, Georgia, Lexie and Tristin as they navigate Katie's diagnosis.

Dunedin, Otago

In March 2024, after experiencing some issues with her eyesight, Katie was sent to the hospital for tests which revealed that she had a Stage 4 Glioblastoma brain tumour. Despite Katie fighting bravely and going through two major brain surgeries, the tumour has returned aggressively both times and now her condition is un-survivable.

Katie's family is now preparing to provide palliative care for Katie at home for as long as possible with the support of the Hospice Community Outreach team.

This has been a devastating time for Katie and Josh and their three incredible children, Georgia, Lexie and Tristin but they have been an amazing support for their mum.

Katie and Josh have long been local business owners, operating the Citizens Food Trucks, the good cafe at Dunedin Airport and previously Ombrellos. Josh is also continuing his career in real estate as he cares for Katie.

We are keenly aware that times are difficult for everyone right now and even just being able to share this page would be an amazing contribution.
