Life in a bubble may have stopped for you and your family, but it hasn’t stopped for our families.
“Life for our family hasn't changed too much with the COVID-19 lockdown, we have pretty much been living in our own bubble for the best part of the last 4 years. The main difference at the moment is that both the boys are off school and we can't have any visitors at all, whereas in the past we would just be extremely selective as to who is around our family.” - Scott Kupa
We recently asked Scott Kupa if he would share his story of what COVID-19 has meant for him and his family. Like many of the families, we support not a great deal has changed. Whilst the lockdown restrictions have been lifted for the rest of NZ and we can begin to find some normality, our families will remain in their ‘bubble’ for some time. Read more here.
Please, give what you can so we can continue supporting families like the Kupa’s.
Child cancer doesn’t stop for a pandemic and neither does our support.
We have kept our promise to our families and donors that the support we offer our families will continue and it will. However, with an increase in referrals, increased support costs as we head into winter - and economic uncertainty means we need your help.
Right now, we are supporting nearly 1,500 families across New Zealand. We focus on the whānau, not the cancer. Each family is different and so is the support they need. One thing is always the same – we support them so they can concentrate on the most important thing of all, caring for their child.
