Marcus (23) father of 3, and Hamiora (26) father of 2, are both battling different forms of Cancer. Both have suffered a hard life from a young age, and need all the help they can get to ease the ongoing pain.

In 2000, at the age of 3 & 5, they buried their Mother (25) who passed away from domestic violence. 2003, they buried their younger brother Ryan (6) who died in a car crash. 2015 brought more grief as they buried their beautiful older sister Horowai (25), who battled gastric cancer for 2months then sadly passed away.

Now in 2018, the only surviving siblings left, Marcus who is battling Cena Carcinoma Cancer requires surgery to remove his stomach & his older brother Hamiora is battling Lymphoma Cancer, which has formed a large Tumor in his side which is quite aggressive.

We need your help financially to help aid not only their treatment, but to offset the financial strain on their family. Both are going through chemotherapy in Hamilton. Although Hamiora lives in Hamilton, Marcus lives in Auckland but travels to Hamilton weekly with his partner and 2 young babies to be by his brothers side to have treatment together.

Every dollar donated is appreciated, and will be one less thing for our nephews to worry about. Thank you from their Taylor & Waenga Whanau xx

Use of funds:

All funds will be split between different forms of treatment, travel costs to/from hospital, also to offset their current outstanding bills that are piling up. A set amount will be set aside for worst case scenario (which we won't need God willing).
