Jason Holley (better known as Levi) is a loving friend, family member and coach to many people. Just 3 months ago the normally healthy, fitness and sports-minded 44yr old started feeling pain down one side of his body. A doctors appointment and blood test showed something was up but little did he know exactly what was about to hit him.
Symptoms quickly worsened, a trip to the emergency department gave him the news no one wants to hear. A CT scan of his head showed he had inoperable brain cancer - a tumour right in the middle of his brain.
Levi is a coach, sports massage therapist, actor, voiceover artist and even a competitive arm-wrestler. Now he’s man whose sole purpose is to survive.
Over the years he has given his time and skills away freely. Volunteering as a coach and trainer from the early age of 18. A regular at charity events, fundraising for a number of organizations and more recently sponsoring amateur athletes who are self-funded representing New Zealand. Even in disguise he is doing his best to help others. Levi wears his Batman costume to charity events and children’s birthdays making their wishes come true.
For years he has opened his home up to coach both individuals and teams asking nothing in return. Now it’s time for us to come together and help this amazing man out.
Levi lives in New Zealand but has lived, competed and studied in America. New Zealand’s medical profession is highly regarded but lacks in advanced treatment. Levi is starting both chemotherapy and radiation in the coming weeks but we are looking outside of New Zealand for more options.
Australia has an advanced device called a “Gamma Knife” that can treat brain tumours that isn’t available in New Zealand. There are also treatments available in America, Canada and Europe that are a possibility. No procedure is off the table.
Levi is selling his car, possessions and even his prized Batman costume to fund his treatment. But he needs your help. As Levi is one of my closest friends, I (Vaughn Guenter) have started this campaign to raise money outside of New Zealand for his alternative treatments. As I live in Australia, I will be transferring 100% of the funds raised to him.
Please give generously so we can give Levi the best possible chance at surviving this terrible disease.
