Ash Santilla - rock against cancer

Ash Santilla, top bloke, great mate, father, brother and rock’n’roller, has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer that has spread to his lymphatic system and liver. His family and friends have come together to help him through this period and offer support. He has moved up to his family home in Benalla and will start a 6-month chemotherapy treatment immediately.

We have started this crowdsource funding page to help with living and treatment expenses for both Ash, his family, his partner and beautiful daughter, Bonnie. All money collected will be administered by Ash with the guidance of his mother and will be spent on associated costs from this hardship. These include treatment and medical scan costs, travel/accom costs for him, his partner and daughter, and a day-to-day living expenses.

Ash has always shared his drive and talent to bring joy and swagger to the Melbourne music scene. Now it is our turn to show him that he did touch people’s lives and in return show him the support and love he deserves and needs.

Your support would allow Ash and his family to get through this period with greater ease and comfort. 

The situation is dire and urgent. So we ask you to give generously.
