NZ actress Delaney Tabron's Givealittle page raises over $26K in 48 hours
A Givealittle page set up for NZ actress Delaney Tabron to help her fight breast cancer has already raised over $26K in just 48 hours.
Having been included on the Givealittle site's front page under the "Trending pages" section, the campaign to get the actress funds to beat the disease has netted $26,368.00 from 197 donors.
Delaney, who starred in NZ comedy series Step Dave, is currently living is Los Angeles and working as a creative director at bi-annual publication No Magazine, which she founded.
In February, she discovered an aggressive cancerous tumour in her right breast.
During a bilateral mastectomy, that tumour turned out to be three.
The page was set up by friend Yavanna Hallam who wanted to help Tabron have access to drugs that had high costs.
The crowd-funding page also includes a plea for others to ensure they undergo regular check ups, saying: "Side note: Delaney noticed a lump in her breast when she was lying down. Male or female, please check your breasts and see your doctor if you find anything out of the ordinary. You might be young and healthy, but breast cancer never discriminates."
