We need help to give Mark every happiness & opportunity & time is critical

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.

We have a beautiful son together

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.
