The family of 6-year-old Kiyan Hunter is pleading to all Fijians to support and assist them in sending their son to India for an immediate medical operation.

Hunter’s grandmother and Vude Queen, Laisa Vulakoro, says Hunter was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was 2 years old, and has been undergoing chemotherapy all this time.

She says her grandson loves soccer, and one day while he was playing, his legs gave up, so they had to rush him to the hospital.

Vulakoro says it was then that he was diagnosed with cancer.

She adds Hunter needs desperate treatment in India because, without it, doctors have given him a few months to live.

The Vude Queen says the family is appealing for any donations that will go towards Hunter’s flight to India and the extensive chemotherapy he needs.

If you want to donate to Hunter’s treatment, you can send your donation to 7896778 for MyCash or 8036150 for M-PaiSA.

You can also send in your donations to BSP account number 82453670.

Hunter’s family have also set up a GoFundMe account.
