In May and June we told our supporters about Kayne, who was healthy little boy about to turn two, until he developed frightening symptoms of vomiting, loss of speech and balance issues. It was discovered that Kayne had a devastating, rare and aggressive form of brain tumour. He had only a 50/50 chance of surviving.
Kayne underwent multiple operations to beat cancer and he was left with a multitude of severe deficits including hearing loss in both ears from the chemotherapy.
Delays to Kayne’s speech meant that he required continuing support to help with his speech and hearing. Without this support Kayne’s language development would continue to be delayed and would not improve.
With our supporters help, we raised $222,000 exceeding our target by $24,000 to ensure kids like Kayne do not miss out on therapy. Thank you!
