Media Statement - 17 April 2017 Te Ururoa Flavell - Co Leader, Member of Parliament Waiariki Maori Party MP and Co-Leader Te Ururoa Flavell sends his best wishes to the whanau of Ka’iulani Forbes who begin their 200km hikoi today to raise money for treatment that is urgently needed by the two year old. Ka’iulani Forbes (Waikato, Ngati Maniapoto, Ngati Whatua, Ngapuhi) was diagnosed with a rare cancer, neuroblastoma, early this year after 50 visits to her doctor had failed to provide a diagnosis. The aggressive cancer has so far, been unresponsive to treatments offered in Aotearoa. “The whanau require funds to enable them to access specialist treatment in the USA which will provide Ka’iulani with the best chance of surviving this cancer“ says Mr Flavell, “a very good friend of mine is an Aunt to this kotiro, and asked if I would get on board with them and use my profile to raise some putea and awareness around the efforts the whanau are making. I was only too happy to help.”
