Give me more time with him please..

Hi my name is Maryann, my partners name is onematua aka (boss). We’re not ones to ever put my hand out and ask for anything, we’re usually the ones offering our help to those in need of it and where ever we can, We do respite work, working with beautiful kids and adults who have conditions such as autism, OCD,ADHD and love it but due to my partners health deteriorating these past 6 years have been filled with so much trials and tribulations with his health it has been very tough he has a hearts of gold a very hard worker as al Maori are lol, he is my best friend, my lover, my soul mate hence the reason I’m asking for assistance as his health has gone deteriorated very fast and isn't improving anytime soon, the doctors have said he isn't allowed to work due to his high blood pressure reaching numbers as high as 289/192 and he's not entitled to any benefits from Centrelink as he is a New Zealand citizen and regulation states that he must reside in Australia for 10 years before receiving any kind of benefit and even after the 10 years he must wait a further 2 years as he has only been here 8 years, we have had trouble getting him on Medicare as it states he falls under the reciprocal agreement which means that he is allowed the free treatment they provide at the hospital but still pay full price to see a GP which cost a minimum of $130 each visit and can't afford the 15+ scripts a month at full price as we are only on one income and have no financial support. We had to relocate to Perth as where we were, they could not accommodate him as he now must travel to and from the clinic to dialysis three days a week he can go on a waiting list to receive a new kidney providing he complies with there regulations to receive the kidney such as, quit smoking, loose weight, keep up with his medication and appointments, he has quit smoking and he use to weigh 237kg but now weighs 130kg so he has complied with some of there regulations such as weight and smoking, but due to his financial situations We are unable to keep up with his medication and travel expenses hence the reason why We have decided to create this page and put his pride aside and ask for help. Like I said we're not ones to ask, people have told me to do this from the start but I guess it's taken this long to ask... We are genuinely asking for some kind of help/support/advice/gesture with no negative feedback please!! Thank you for taking the time to read my story I’m happy to illabirate on anything to genuine people only. Thank you sincerely Mary & Boss
