A strong young family fighting an unbelievable battle.

Shaun and Olivia are such wonderful, humble, kind, hard-working people. They are always the ones wanting to help others, so asking for help themselves is a huge obstacle in itself.

Shaun and his wife Olivia welcomed their beautiful daughter Charlotte on 28th April 2019. A week later Shaun collapsed and soon after was diagnosed with Stage 4 large B-cell non-hodgkin's lymphoma. After 4 months of intensive Chemotherapy, a secondary CNS brain tumor was discovered and Shaun is now undergoing a further 4 months of Chemotherapy. Shaun and his family have spent much of their time in isolation since April to defend themselves against infection. However despite this Shaun has endured many illnesses including blood infections requiring blood transfusions and other medical intervention, often requiring long stints admitted to hospital during chemotherapy and between rounds due to complications.

Shaun is a Farm Manager, and Olivia an Early Childhood Teacher, both been unable to work since the birth of their daughter and subsequent cancer diagnosis. Their 7 month old daughter Charlotte has been a shining light of positive energy, and wife Olivia has been a rock holding this family together.

They are very grateful for all the amazing support they have already received from family, friends, and the community, this is just one more way we can help share the burden this family have been unfortunate to receive.

New Year Update  22 January 2020

Posted by: Shaun McPherson

Thank-you everyone so much for all your support so far! The Bradley's have been overwhelmed with your generosity through this life-changing experience. The Bradleys spent Christmas in Dunedin Hospital for Series 2, Round 3 of Chemotherapy, the only priority for them this year - being together. The New Year bought another sidestep with Shaun admitted to hospital for a week with yet another infection, fortunately with the careful management of the medical professions at Southland Hospital along with Shaun's determination, he was once again able to beat another curveball. January bought some very positive news, an MRI scan has revealed Shaun secondary CNS tumor is responding to the Chemo, so the battle continues. Last week the intensity of Chemo stepped up for Round 4, which Shaun and his family once again battled through together. Thank-you again for your support for this strong family, keep the positivity rolling!
