We want to help Cosie and Marg through this journey ahead of them

Main image

Our legendary Cosie has got a pretty tough battle ahead, all because of a terrible system that doesn’t give equal opportunity to treatment as other places. In fact his referral that said ‘high suspicion of cancer’ after testing from his GP, got declined by the Southern DHB as he didn’t meet criteria, they told him to wait for the test in the mail... a year later he’s now Stage 4. Last year he could have been at a stage that could have meant he lived for another 15 years, he’s now got a 50% chance of making 2 years.. So where to from here? We are having a get together on the 30th of November in Wanaka to show our support to the big man and his family, for those that may not be able to attend we have established this page for you so your presence may be felt.
