Nathan was diagnosed with bad case of hepatitis in November 2014 in Biloela and was undergoing treatment for this in Biloela and Rockhampton and then had to go to the Royal Brisbane Hospital for a liver biopsy. And further test show that Nathan had a sever case of Aplastic Anemia. In which he was admitted to Royal Brisbane Hospital for further treatment he went through chemo, radiation and also apgham . He has had many platelets and blood transfusion and had to have a bone marrow transfusion on the 18th of November and now he is fighting for his life from Gvhd which is graft verses host disease which the graft from his bone marrow transplant is fighting against his stomach.
We are doing this fundraiser to help my family, when my brother Nathan had his bone marrow transplant everything went as good as it could for him he was recovering really good he spent 30 days in hospital after his transplant he was in quarantine so that he couldn't catch any infections as his immune system was restarted. After those 30 days Nathan was able to go back to the lekiuma foundation units to finish off his recovery. He had to stay in Brisbane for another 70 days. his partner kerenza and son diesel age 8 have been with Nathan since he was first diagnosed with a sever case of plastic anemia. As days went by Nathan looked really good we thought his recovery was going very well. On the 25th of December his parents Karen and Brian Kington Came to spend a week with Nathan,kerenza and diesel, a day before New Year's Eve Nathan got real sick he was vomitting he had pains in his stomach and had bad diarrhoea he thought it was just a bug. Nathan thought it would just go away but New Year's Day came and Nathan was still sick his partner and father said to call the ambulance, Nathan was then rushed back to the hospital. After being monitored and further tests he was then diagnosed with a sever case of (GVHD) which was attacking his stomach. A week went by He was being monitored the nurses found Nathan on the floor in the bathroom half uncouncious, the nurses and doctors came in moved Nathan straight to ICU his blood pressure was down low and his heart rate was very high therefore they put him in a induced coma as his GVHD was very aggressive the head doctor of the ICU thought Nathan was going to pass away that night, as the doctor thought that his stomach was going septic and his heart was going to fail on him. His partner kerenza was in pieces and scared as hell, myself my wife and kids were on our way to Brisbane along with my sister Cassandra and my parents Karen and brian when we got the phone call that Nathan may pass away that night. by some miracle he pulled through it. 3 days after Nathan was waking up from the induced coma. He spent 9 days in ICU before he was moved back to the lekiuma ward. My family and Nathan were told that Nathan has a 1% chance of pulling through this, as much as my family wanted to stay with Nathan we had no choice but to go back to work to be able to pay our bills still, my parents made the decision for my mum to stay back as she did not want to leave her sons side so She took out her long service leave which runs out on the 27th febuary 2016, my dad has no annual leave or sick leave left to use he tried to access his super funds but was denied. So if I had money to give them to keep them there with my bother there son I would, so this is why I'm reaching out to the people to please help my family through this difficult time
