In September 2021, our very own Ben Nekoufar, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer at the age of 31 years.
Supported by his network of family, friends, and partner Jacky, Ben’s chemotherapy is expected to run right up to Christmas 2021.
Sadly, Jacky is facing her own health issues, in early 2020 at the age of 26 years, Jacky was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. So far, she has had to endure a full year of chemo, radiation and immunotherapy treatments.
Family and friends are helping where they can with driving to the never-ending doctor’s appointments, and with moral support.
Financially it has been challenging with both Ben and Jacky (a primary school teacher) being unable to work. They now face significant and ongoing medical expenses.
In November 2021 Tetra Tech Proteus set up a dedicated fundraising page here kicking off a month long fundraising efforts. Over $12,000 has been raised so far with all money raised going directly to Ben and Jacky.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this great cause.
