Event description
The quiz night is to raise much needed funds for our good ol' mate Brent to receive the Chemo treatment Keytruda, he so desperately needs.

About this Event

In June 2018 Brent was diagnosed with a very rare cancer, squamous cell carcinoma there are less than 6 recorded incidences in NZ per year. In the past 10 months, Brent has undergone 4 rounds of chemo, 33 rounds of radiotherapy and 4 surgeries. It has been a painful 10 months which has been dealt with by Brent and Tracey with amazing strength.

Most recently Brent has undergone a lung and leg (lymph nodes) biopsy which confirmed secondary lung cancer which as a combination is even rarer.Brent has started chemotherapy where for five days at a time he is put on the drip for 6 – 8 hours each day but he also needs to take the drug Keytruda an immunotherapy treatment. Keytruda blocks the protective mechanism of the cancer cells and allows the immune system to destroy them.This treatment will cost over $75,000, Pharmac have been approached to fund this drug but have been turned down.

To ALL of Brent friends and family here in Wellington, come along to the quiz night and together lets try to raise as much as we can to help Brent get the treatment he so deserves.
