The Breakfast Club & our family of listeners raise money for Carlyn's cancer treatment

The Breakfast Club 14/05/2020

Last week we spoke to a friend of the show Jenny, her daughter Carlyn has been raising funds for her cancer treament. Carlyn needed to raise $87,000 in total.

With the country coming out of Level 3 lockdown today, The Breakfast Club wanted to get Carlyn out of her 'cancer lockdown' - so proposed something pretty special to her...

Check out the video above to see how it all played out!

Read more about the treatment Carlyn needs below...

"Carlyn has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma – a cancer she has courageously been fighting since the tender age of 14." the GiveALittle donation page reads.

"Over the years, multiple chemo treatments, radiation and a stem cell transplant have given short-term success, but the cancer keeps returning. With no public treatment options left, Carlyn’s only hope for a cure rests with a NZ Government-approved, but unfunded drug."

"This immune therapy treatment ($60,000) and care ($23,000), to be carried out at St George’s Hospital in Christchurch, cannot get underway until we have money in the bank."
