To support the Bains as they care for Markus in Starship Hospital.

Main image

Mike and Karyn's son Markus is in ICU in Starship with an atypical form of Guillain Barre Syndrome. Their other two sons are being cared for by friends and family in Wellington. Many people have been asking about ways they can help and one of the obvious ways is financial.

The Bains will have incurred some lost income and additional costs during this time, especially with the need to fly to and from Auckland. In addition, we'd love to bless the Bains with a financial gift so they can do something fun as a family once they're all back together again.

Simon Gill's involvement (page creator)

I'm a friend of the Bains and the Pastor of the church they're a part of.

Use of funds

Replenish lost income for Mike who couldn't work in the early days of Markus' time in hospital. Flights for the family to be able to get together some weekends. Any extra could be used for something fun to do as a family once Markus is able to come home.
