Jason Saunders - the most humble, caring and loving human being. I know because that's why I love him. He is Always on the lookout to help others, and giving back to the less fortunate, but now he is in need of your help.
In March this year, Jason 32, was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive and terminal form of Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4)
An emergency operation was required and he underwent both Radiation and Chemotherapy after his surgery. The Doctors gave him only a few months to live. They stated that his tumor is the most aggressive and fastest growing that they have ever come across. But with a Positive mindset and change of lifestyle he proved them wrong. In July with his follow up MRI Scan, it was discovered that Jason’s tumor had shrunk!! and he wouldn’t need another scan for another 3 months (October this year).
Things were looking positive for us, Jason and I became engaged and started planning our wedding and he was almost ready to go back to work. However he started experiencing unbearable back pain, neck spasms and daily vomiting. In his October scan it was discovered his Cancer had spread to his Spine. Which is unheard of according to his Neurosurgeon and the other 4 Doctors on the board.
So Jason must once again begin his fight against Cancer. Cancer has taken Jason’s ability to drive, surf, walk long distances, his livelihood and is trying to take his life. But it won’t take his fighting spirit, positivity, faith or determination to beat cancer! and get through another operation and round of Radiation & Chemotherapy (beginning October 28th)
For those of you that don’t know Brain Cancer is one of the most financially debilitating cancers as it attacks sufferers in their prime. Rendering patients unable to work (as in Jason’s case). The nature of the disease also means that in a lot of cases as is ours that the patients partner has to give up work too to become a full-time care giver. Our Medical Aid is depleted and all the medical bills set us back a lot, not even to mention several post treatment visits to a variety of Doctors, Homeopaths and Chiropractors we need to see.
It's been a life changing journey that we can't describe. A Journey that brought us to our knees. But together as a couple and with the amazing support system of friend’s family and wonderful medical professionals we refuse to give up. As we are sure you can imagine this is a very stressful time without the added burden of financial stress. We know it may not be possible for everyone to donate but we thank you for taking time to read this and a positive thought and prayer go a long way! We believe that with a positive mindset we can beat this cancer together, twice as hard and to help others in future again but on a bigger scale.
We also support Beanies4Braincancer in Australia for Brain Cancer Research (Picture attached)

Jason was admitted to hospital this week before having his scheduled operation due to severe dehydration as a result of constant vomiting and not being able to pass water. A follow up MRi scan was done on his spine while in ICU and they found the cancer to be 3x. . . . .
