Help raise funds for Elisha’s ongoing treatment.
Surrounded by the love of her closest friends and family and after the bravest of fights our little girl slipped away peacefully at 12.38am on Wednesday 30th April with Dads tunes on the radio amidst the laughter and tears that comes with a typical Neave gathering.
Thank you all for carrying her and us through this long yet inspirational journey. As you can imagine we are feeling very fragile broken and so pleased and comforted that she is free from pain and now we have two angels guiding and watching over us. We feel your love and light as she did.
Elisha was known by many names growing up – Loo Loo, Bang Bang, Poo Bum, Cake Face, Leash and Loo. Over the last couple of years she has been given many more names, courageous, inspirational, brave, beautiful, strong, and amazing. On Wednesday morning she was given one more – An Angel in Heaven. https://vimeo.com/94165629
Her Legacy will continue as will our fight to keep raising awareness and funds for practical support and lobbying to improve the accessibility and affordability of treatments for BRCA Patients for preventative or cancer fighting treatments.
Elisha has a rare and aggressive form of cancer. She is 34 years old and a single mum to 10 year old Jack. She knows there is a chance to prolong her life with an expensive treatment plan if only she had the money to fund it. Her oncologist, her family and son are all desperate to try and save her … can you help?
Elisha and her family were recently featured on 60 minutes. You can view the full segment on the 60 minutes website by clicking the image.
In March 2012, at 33years of age, young Gold Coast mum Elisha Neave was told that she had an aggressive form of ovarian cancer – 8months later and after radical chemotherapy, a drastic hysterectomy, major surgery and a Christmas spent with a quiet feeling of hope – Elisha was advised that the cancer was back and was in fact a rare form of Cancer. 2013 is the battle for Elisha and making sure her son Jack has his mum around in his future.
“Elisha is the light of our family. We will not stop in our pursuit to ensure Jack has his mum and we keep our beautiful daughter, sister and mother in ourlives. I thank you deeply for helping us fight”

Elisha is currently in hospital undertaking a (clinical trial) specialised treatment to treat this rare form of cancer. Unable to work – the stress of funding the specialised drugs and medical expenses, combined with her ongoing costs to support her son Jack – is overwhelming. To continue treatment and give Elisha the chance to beat her cancer she needs financial help.
The new drug trial is working – and the long term goal for Elisha to visit a German clinic that offers life-saving treatments currently not available in Australia is a possibility – the only thing standing in the way is the funds to finance her treatment.
