Supporting Cara through every avenue possible in her battle against cancer.

  Auckland

Our wonderful, sister, wife, daughter and friend, Cara, was given earth shattering news on Monday 1 March, when, completely unexpectedly, she was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer that has unfortunately spread to her liver.

Anyone who knows Cara, knows her as an energizer bunny, lover of life, adventure seeker and an all round amazing person. This news is devastating for all that know her, least of all for Cara and her husband James, who only a year ago were married and looking forward to all the adventures life has to offer.

Things have moved unbelievably quickly - Cara was diagnosed on Monday and she had her first session of chemotherapy on Thursday. While she is going through the public system for chemo, and the diagnosis is incurable, there are unfunded treatments that are more targeted toward her bowel cancer and we will be exploring absolutely every avenue possible to ensure our girl lives the life she is meant to lead.

Cara is not the type of person to ask for help - she's tough, stubborn and independent but she needs her village around her now, supporting her every step of the way. Whether its a dollar or a message of support, it would mean so much to us all.

If you have any questions or want to send messages of support please email: cameronfundraiser28@gmail.com

Big love

For those that don't know me, I'm Cara's sister and best friend. Born 18 months apart and always by her side. Thank you for all of the support x

Use of funds

Cara needs to focus all of her energy on her treatment which means putting a pause on work for a undetermined amount of time. This fight will cost money and we want to remove as much financial burden as possible.

Update on Cara  10 June 2021

Posted by: Loren Bolton

Hi everyone,

It's been just over 3 months since Cara's diagnosis.

She's trooped through 8 rounds of chemo and 7 rounds of cetuximab and, despite there being some nasty side effects - continues to power through with a smile on her face. I think we all feel like we've aged 10 years in these past 3 months but Cara continues to keep everyone's spirits high with her unrelentingly positive attitude.

It was an anxious week of waiting last week as Cara had her 3 month CT scan which essentially gave a full picture on what exactly is going on in her body, after 12 weeks of intensive treatment. We are happy to share positive news in that Cara has had significant shrinkage on both her liver and bowel growths and there has been no further spread in her body.

While we are reminded that this is just the start of the journey, we are encouraged and over the moon to see some positive results for our lady. She will continue on with chemo & cetuximab and have another CT scan in 3 months. We will keep this group of lovely family, friends and kind strangers in the loop as we continue onwards and upwards.

Will be sure to shake Cara up a Pina Colada tonight to celebrate some happy news.

Lots of love,

Loren
