Heart­felt ap­peal for com­mu­nity do­na­tions

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

WIDE Bay res­i­dent Bobi Now­land and her sib­lings are ap­peal­ing to the wider com­mu­nity for help in their mother’s fight against cancer.

Mrs Nowlan’s mother, Julie Shultz, has been bat­tling re­nal cancer for two years, with chemo­ther­apy, ra­di­a­tion, op­er­a­tions and med­i­ca­tions.

“At the mo­ment she is bound to mo­bil­ity aids and has to wear a neck brace,” Mrs Now­land said.

Mrs Now­land and fam­ily have set up a GoFundMe cam­paign for cancer treat­ment not cov­ered on the pub­lic ben­e­fit scheme.

“There is a new cancer treat­ment avail­able in Aus­tralia called im­munother­apy,” Mrs Now­land said.

“These are de­liv­ered by way of in­fu­sions ev­ery fort­night and they cost $4000 per in­fu­sion, so my sib­lings and I have de­cided to reach out for do­na­tions.

“This is the last treat­ment avail­able to her.”

Mrs Shultz is the daugh­ter of Monto cou­ple Hazel and Ge­off Shultz.
