Nigel, his wife Sonja and their two gorgeous kids, Grace (5) and William (2) are in the midst of a daunting battle. Earlier this year, at 37, Nigel was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), shattering in itself but even more heartbreaking as this is not Nigel's first battle with cancer. Unfortunately, the treatments Nigel has been having up until this point have not been effective, and Nigel is now bracing to undergo a Stem Cell Transplant in the very near future. This involves replacing the stem cells in his bone marrow with stem cells from a donor. Finding a compatible donor has been months in the works, and the process is complex and involves many risks. The recovery time is at least a year but can be a lot longer. Despite the dangers, Stem Cell treatment is the best chance of a cure for Nigel. Unfortunately, there is a possibility of out-of-pocket costs associated with treatment, possibly $30,000, not to mention lost income for Sonja and Nigel over the previous months of this year.
The Rogasch’s are great friends to many of us, community-minded, hardworking, loyal, good fun, and brilliant parents to Grace and William. Nigel is a fighter and is prepared for the long haul. As his mates, colleagues, family and community members, we want to rally around this beautiful young family by raising some money to support them as they navigate the next few months and years.
Any money you can donate will cover medical expenses, allow Nigel and Sonja to spoil their kids this Christmas, take the pressure off the cost of living, perhaps enjoy a family holiday together and generally help them enjoy life however they see fit.
If you are not in a position to donate, it would be fantastic if you could share this page.
If you are able to donate, your contribution is greatly appreciated.
On behalf of Nigel, Sonja and their family, THANK YOU!
