Supporting Matt Wilkie & his young family to fight cancer
Please get behind helping out the Wilkie family in this difficult time however you can.Manawatu / Whanganui
After developing a cough, that steadily worsened and was undiagnosed for a number of months, Matt has been given the heartbreaking news he has Stage 4 bowel cancer that has spread to his lungs.
Chemotherapy is planned to begin immediately.
Matt is only 30 years old, he has 2 beautiful young boys (a 2 year old and 4 month old) and an amazing wife. He was fit and healthy with an active job and is a volunteer firefighter. He has never smoked. He is the kind of man that would do anything for a friend.
Matt and his family have already had to go through a private hospital to undertake the lung biopsy that found the cancer, and the medical bills won't stop there.
Please do all you can to help this beautiful young family in a time of need.
Thank you so much.
Greg Wilson's involvement (page creator)
I have benefitted from Matt's friendship for a decade. Raising funds for his family is the least we can do for him.
Use of funds
The main use will be to cover any private medical costs including unfunded treatment options. If they are fortunate enough to have any surplus funds, these will be used to help eliminate some of their debt.
A massive thank you! 3 July 2021
We are so overwhelmed and grateful for all of the love and support we have received on this journey so far. This is not a journey we ever wished to take and there are many unknowns in the near future.
Matt started chemo yesterday and he will need to complete a few rounds before we know if it is helping. Thanks to your kind and generous donations, we will be able to explore many treatment options should this one not pan out as we hope. These funds also help to alleviate some financial stress and allow us to focus on spending time together as a family.
The road ahead is a tough one but we will hopefully have some more positive news to share soon ❤️
