Support Seti Tafua Appeal

This fund has been set up with the intention of generating as much financial assistance as possible for our much loved friend in need: Seti Tafua. On the 23rd of June when playing one of his final games in Sydney for his club Northern Suburbs, Seti received a spinal injury. Instead of returning home to Wellington in the weeks following as planned Seti was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital, where he has undergone two operations and remains in the spinal unit with no feeling or movement below the waist. In what’s been described as a 'freak accident' Seti's C5 and C6 cervical vertebrae fractured, shifting position and damaging his spinal cord. At present, Seti is paralyzed from the waist down and it has been reported that if there's a miracle there may be some limited movement. Hopes are high for a complete recovery although we are aiming to raise as much as possible to make this difficult time in our beloved friend’s life a little bit easier for both him and his family. Seti has enjoyed many successes throughout his Rugby career one highlight being when he represented Samoa in the Junior Rugby World Cup. It is a tragedy to see such horrible circumstances forced upon not only a very promising athlete, but also such a genuine, caring and all-round lovely guy.As such we ask for your support. Whether you’re a friend, family or haven't had the pleasure of meeting Seti and experiencing that infectious smile, all donations big and small are both welcome and extremely appreciated.As we are using Pay Pal a small percentage of each donation is taxed by them but we are doing our absolute best to minimize this in an effort to ensure the Tafua family get the absolute most out of all your kind hearted donations.Thank you so much for all your support and if anyone has any questions please feel free to reach out to someone below:Patrick Kelleher (AUS): +61 459794383Daniel Sandoval (AUS): +61 406521710/sandovdani@myvuw.ac.nzChris Evans (AUS): +61 434598541/cbevans072@gmail.comJames Thwaites (NZ): +64 278609828 *All proceeds will be passed on directly to Tafua family.http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/7182578/Horror-rugby-injury-for-Wellington-lad
