For those of you who don't know already, our friend Steve has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

All our love and best wishes go out to Steve and his wife Jo at this incredibly difficult time.

Because Steve has taken the initiative to build his taxi business, he is not eligible for any disability assistance, leaving him in an incredibly tough situation.

This Givealittle page is all about helping our friend in his greatest time of need. To help provide some breathing space while he sets his affairs in order.

Every bit we can give will directly improve the time Steve has. Please give anything. Every dollar will bring love and joy and SO much appreciation.

We need this to go out to as many of Steve's friends as possible so please let people know and copy the link to this page to your social media accounts, posts and emails. We need your help to get this message out there.

Thank you

Gavin Thiele's involvement (page creator)

I am one of many of Steve's friends and together we are here to ease his burden and give him some quality time with his loved ones.

Use of funds

This is so Steve can have some income while he sorts out his affairs and more importantly have some quality time to enjoy the time he has left with us.

Chemotherapy day 1  2 June 2021

Posted by: Steve Carr

A quick update from the day unit at Dunedin Hospital. The first of the two drug cocktail is pumping away into my arm, with the second to follow soon. So far, so good!

Monday I prepaid for my funeral and plot in the spectacular Andersons Bay cemetery so funds received from all you lovely donors are certainly helping. I managed to secure a great spot and the people at Exit Funeral Services, while the cheapest in town, have been great to deal with.

No progress on selling the taxis so we're still well behind the eight ball financially. Hopefully I can get that done, but until it is, dealing with WINZ will be pretty fraught.
