Hoping. Healing. Believing. Team Tiago

$22,919 donated
Given by 299 generous donors in around 12 months

Helping Team Tiago fund the life saving treatment he needs to smash the nasties! Childhood Cancer is not RARE it's REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Tiago, aged 2 diagnosed with stage 4 NEUROBLASTOMA. He has endured 6 rounds of chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, radiation and multiple surgeries. 2 years on…

HE HAS RELAPSED! The nasties are back! Team Tiago's only 'medical/funded' option is palliative chemotherapy. His family have chosen a less invasive, and with huge HOPE, more effective, natural line of treatment.

High dose VITAMIN C.

At $100 per treatment with a minimum of 2 treatments per week this life saving medicine is proving financially difficult.


Xani and Anna Ronaki-Kenney's involvement (page creator)

We are mothers of children who have battled childhood cancer alongside Team Tiago. Tiago and his family have battled long, fought hard and always remained positive!

Angel wings.  13 May 2015

A message from Jo via Tiago's Journey FB page….

Heaven has received another brave yet tired soul to care for. Jose Tiago Gordon Pinheiro gained his amazing, fast, shiny, superpower wings yesterday afternoon.

We really believed until that moment that our darling cherished big boy could beat his nasties, but they took his smile, they took his mobility, they took the sparkle from his eyes and in the end his spirit left that shell of a body and rescued my baby.

Our big boy, 4.9 years old. Living and laughing with nasties since he was 2.5 years old. He is loving, he is clever, he is adventurous, he is amazing.

"You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.

Or you can do what he'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on."

I have learnt much from my son. To never, ever, give up.

There is no Cancer in heaven, he knew this and really liked the sound of it.

Team Tiago is still open for donations… In turn the family will be making donations to 809 foundation and Dream Chaser Foundation.

Thank you so very much for your support in the past few months - we have gained so much strength and positive energy from you all.
