Meet our Jingle Bail Kids

The bail money from More FM Jingle Bail will be used to send these Kiwi kids on a holiday adventure with Koru Care NZ.

Nominations for Jingle Bail are still open, fill out the form here.

Mason is 9 years old from Christchurch.

Mason was diagnosed with Leukaemia in February last year and has been in and out of hospital having chemotherapy ever since.

His mum and dad say he is a very brave, strong boy.

His maintenance treatment will continue for 2 and a half years until he is in remission.

Quinn is 11 years old from Whangarei.

Quinn has Stickler Syndrome, which is a genetic condition that affects people in different ways.

For Quinn, it means he doesn’t produce collagen and had a retinal detachment in his right eye causing blindness. His left eye is in danger of it happening too.

He has had multiple operations on his eyes over the last few years, meaning he has missed a lot of school. 

William is 14 years old from Invercargill.

William has a life threatening illness called Aplastic Anaemia, and after one failed bone marrow transplant and months and months of chemo, he is doing well with his second transplant.

He has had to travel from Invercargill to Auckland often for treatment and has had two years of disruption at school.

Fatigue is an ongoing issue but William gets regular checkups. An experience like this trip will help him to feel normal again.

Brooklyn is 13 years old from Dunedin.

Brooklyn was born premature and with a heart defect.

She had open heart surgery when she was just five years old!

She spends her free time helping out Heart Kids with fundraising and participating in challenges. She’s always getting involved!

Noah is 12 years old from Queenstown.

Noah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was a baby!

He has a permanent pump inserted under his skin that administers insulin and has to be changed every 3 days. He needs 24 hour supervision so hasn’t been away from his parents except for Diabetes Camp.

He’s a kind and caring boy who deserves a special treat like this.

Nathaniel is 12 years old from Whangarei.

Nathaniel has Autosomal dominant optic atrophy - which basically means his optic nerves are deteriorating and he is losing his sight. Eventually it is expected that he will be blind.

He is an amazing boy who does not let his condition stop him from doing what he wants to do. His parents want to give him as many experiences as they can while he can still see.

Thanks to Toyworld for helping make More FM Jingle Bail possible.
