Dear Tavarua Friends and Family,

 

We wanted to bring everyone up to date on Druku’s health and current needs. His medical condition and recurring cancer requires further treatment that isn’t available in Fiji and so we are organizing his return travel to the states.

 

He needs to undergo radiation/chemo therapy that will require an extended stay and caregiving. . His wife Aseri will be traveling with him as his caregiver. His doctors believe that the radiation treatment would require 6 weeks.

 

We are extremely fortunate to have the support of so many generous people and organizations. Ken and Pam Peterson, have offered food, accommodation and transport for Druku and Aseri and are helping us through a medical foundation affiliated with the Cancer Center of Irvine (CCOI) a world-class radiation oncology center in Irvine. KSK Cancer Center of Irvine will be sponsoring his radiation therapy. Dr. Jekwon Yeh and Dr. Tokito have been helping consult on Druku’s medical condition. Waterways and Sean Murphy are donating their air travel.

 

But we still need your help financially and in finding a medical oncologist able to treat Druku with Chemotherapy. This may cost another $20,000.00 USD or more depending on finding an oncologist willing to donate their time. Perhaps someone may know a Dr. that might be willing to help?

 

We are reaching out to you and the wonderful Tavarua Family grapevine. We hope that we can send them in March and so we need to expedite our requests.

 

Our paypal account is still active and can be found at our FundRazr page – or linked thru our Druku Fund facebook page. (See below for the links)

 

Please spread the word.

Vinaka vaka levu for your continued generosity and support;

 

Tavarua Island Resort
