For some, a trip to the Gold Coast doesn't mean much. But when we hear stories like Octaviers, we realise why we need to raise enough bail money for them.

Octavier is 9 years old from Blenheim.

Octavier was only 10 months old and just starting to stand when his parents realised there was a problem.  One morning his dad Simon noticed he wasn’t able to put any weight on his right leg and his leg was hot with a lump. 

They rushed to the doctors where Octavier had an X-ray and by 6pm that night he was having his first surgery.   The doctors initially were treating it as a bone infection but he was eventually diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. 

In his short life he has been through so much trauma and a long healing process which has meant he has missed out on so many opportunities - this trip would be a dream come true for Octavier
