Pete Rafferty is very sick and needs an urgent life saving drug called Keytruda, without it he has a limited prognosis. Pete has three young boys and a foster child who really need him. This vital drug is not listed on the PBS for subsidy for Mesothelioma patients, only Melanoma sufferers. Each injection costs $4000.00 every 3 weeks. This drug has worked miracles for other Mesothelioma and Melanoma sufferers. This money is needed urgently so Pete can start treatement after his chemotherapy. Any amount would be appreciated. https://www.mesotheliomahelp.org/2015/04/mercks-drug-keytruda-shows-encouraging-results-in-mesothelioma-clinical-trial-83182/
I've made a team called Mesowarriors to do the HBF Run for a Reason on Sunday 28 May. This is to raise funds for the amazing Reflections Through Reality foundation, which has supported Pete in his fight against mesothelioma. Any donations appreciated and it goes to a very worthy cause xx
Pete has started his first round of chemo today. He'll spend 5 hours at the cancer centre at Charles Gairdner Hospital, then home to recover. This will be repeated every 3 weeks for 6 rounds, to buy him some extra time. He's giving it his best and fighting this disease with everything he's got.
Pete and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped support our campaign. We are so grateful for every single donation and share of our page. Your kindness and generosity has been overwhelming and means Pete now has enough for 2 treatments. We feel truly blessed. Please accept this message as our sincere thanks.
