Help Nathan Get Better!

My good friend Nathan has been struggling with an unknown illness for the past few years and it is becoming increasingly strenuous on himself and his family.... both financially and physically.

His condition is currently undiagnosed and he is undergoing numerous tests in order to get to the bottom of what the underlying problem is. At the moment his body is not absorbing fat or protein, this is causing a negative impact on his life as most of the time he doesn't have the strength to leave the house and it has become such an issue that eating anything is causing him pain, he is only able to drink vegetable juices and vitamin supplements.

He now weighs 58 kilos, his body has refused to absorb fats even with pancreatic medication that’s meant to help, has continued to fail to work,  He doesnt know how someone on a disability pension who’s trying to figure out they’re  disability  can afford to fix they’re disability. If you know anything about fat and what is does for ur brain and you can’t absorb it, ur whole body is going to be affected, brain fog, forgetting stuff, pains in ur body, weakness, vomiting, shaking fits, immune disorders, white blood cells sick, forgetting where you are, not recognising urself in the mirror, fatigued, constant weight loss, it’s not fun.

Nathan is having to pay for expensive testing and appointments with private specialist doctors to get to the bottom of what is happening, and this is becoming increasingly difficult to afford on a disability pension as he is unable to work only getting $300 a week to survive off and having to pay $175 per visit alone to specialists, tests come from anywhere from $80-$300 a test.

The aim of this campaign is to alleviate some financial stress off Nathan so he can focus on proper medical treatment and getting a diagnoses on what his condition is, only then will he be able to start taking steps towards getting better. Nathan has spent many years dedicating his time to documenting the skateboarding community on the Mornington Peninsula as well as being an active part in it and influencing younger generations. He has spent countless hours behind the camera documenting the progression of others, and more than ever this is an opportunity to give back and help support a friend in need.

Any donation however small or large I'm sure will help enormously.
