Event description

Description

Brent Catekista, a 1995 Kamehameha Schools graduate, born and raised in Hawaii is battling Neurofibromatosis (NF). The surgery to have the tumor removed from his neck was deemed complicated and it was decided it was best to have it done at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. This unexpected trip did not prepare Brent for the costs of medical expenses he endured. Although the surgery was a success and after completing radiation treatment in August 2016, it was discovered the cancer spread to his lungs. Brent underwent 4 chemotherapy treatments that have been unsuccessful in treating the cancer. Brent has been a fighter and continues to work with a team of physicians who are preparing him for the next step in his treatment.

On September 10, 2017, friends of Brent Catekista are organizing a fundraiser at The Republik to help him with medical treatment and costs. At this time, Opdivo, a cancer treatment has been determined to help Brent in the next phase of his treatment. However, it is not covered by his medical insurance and essentially he will have to endure the costs of this treatment. We have a financial goal of $25,000.00 to help Brent with medical expenses.

We come to you today to humbly request your generous support as we seek financial donations and/or donations to use in our raffle and silent auction to help offset some of his expenses. In addition, there is a GoFundMe account set up for Brent Catekista. We are prepared to provide receipts and summary reports should an opportunity to receive larger funding be granted.

Some of the items of immediate need:

  • Financial Sponsorship and/or Donations
  • Donations of meals and/or Gift Cards
  • Donations of services for raffle/silent auction

Should you have any additional questions about us or would like an opportunity to partner please do not hesitate to contact Meagan Kini at (808) 824-2894 or via email at benefit4brent@gmail.com. We sincerely appreciate your consideration.

Mahalo nui loa,
