Overseas Cancer Treatment for Kristian Hoogenkamp

$80,380 of $350,000 goal

Raised by 960 people in 19 days
Created July 31, 2019
From Elisa - Kristians Aunty and Tina’s Sister.


In February 2018, our family received the news that our beautiful Kristian, nephew, cousin, son, grandson, brother and friend had Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare muscle cancer.  After a rough 17 months of treatment at the Perth Childrens Hospital, Kristian has again become unwell and his cancer has returned.


We are looking at every avenue for treatment and have been in touch with a few treatment centers overseas. Obviously the options of going overseas are a costly exercise, we have been quoted over $300,000, but we refuse to give up and will do anything we can.


We are overwhelmed by the offers of support from family, friends and the community, and so any financial contribution to assist Kristian now would be extremely grateful.


We thank you all for the prayers and good wishes for Kristian as we need them now more than ever

Too emotional and teary to speak on camera last Sunday, I never thought in a million years this sort of thing would happen to our growing, active, happy and healthy son and family. We have been shocked to the core and can't begin to understand how or why? Colin and I have been totally overwhelmed. I just want to express my gratitude to everyone for their lovely heartfelt comments and generous donations. So thankful that a wonderful and caring community can get behind our beautiful 16 yo son. We are very grateful. We don't like to ask, nor have been good at accepting help as we don't feel that our son is more important than any other child, but he is OUR son and such a beautiful soul and we will do whatever it takes to get him well again.

Thank you to family and friends for spreading the page and the extended community of Perth and beyond, for their thoughtful and generous donations, big and small. Many of you we do not know, but are so happy you took the time to care and donate.

We hope to keep you all updated.
Please keep us in your prayers.
We are a close family and we will keep going with the fight!
God bless.
