To bring a family together after shock diagnosis
We need help to give Mark every happiness & opportunity & time is criticalWaikato
After being ill for 4 months, Mark, 42, was finally diagnosed July 9th 2020 with Bowel Cancer. After an operation to remove the tumor, we were told July 20th 2020 the cancer has spread to his liver & devastatingly, has been given an aprox 14 month timeline. He started an 18 week, fortnightly Chemotherapy course on July 24th 2020 but only as a control attempt.
It is surreal. It is raw. It is just heartbreaking.
Although a very private man, Mark has given his approval for me to start this page after friends & family from around the country & overseas have expressed a desire to help in some way.
He has a beautiful daughter in the UK that we desperately want to bring over so she can spend time with Mark & her two brothers & make some memories whilst we have time. To delay is folly. There are also non-funded treatments that may provide additional time but we are talking megabucks. If enough can be raised, we would then be able to consider this option, although it is a big ask.
If timeline proves less, any money raised will first cover any outstanding financial commitments before being split equally between his three children.

Use of funds
Any monies raised will go to Mark, firstly for his daughters flights & time in NZ & to provide some relief from the financial burdens that continue to roll in & overwhelm.
