A ray of hope for Raffy

This is Raffy, he’s your average, funny 7 year old kid, but he’s had a pretty rough start to 2017.

At Christmas time Raffy was diagnosed with a grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumour, it’s the one you don’t want to get.
Fortunately he’s had 95% of it removed and after treatment it is reducing in size and is currently inactive, which is no mean feat for a 7 year old against the toughest form of brain cancer.
He’s on a treatment protocol to keep him in this state, but unfortunately it’s not covered by public or private health cover & is costing us around $1500 per week, his treatment will be ongoing and his mountain is a big one to climb.
So that’s where you come in, we need your help, so dig deep into your hearts, and pockets (anonymously if you prefer) and give what you can, no matter the amount, every bit will help.

Raphael is an amazing kid and it’d be wonderful to give him the chance to enjoy more of life.
