Drumming for Jethro! - Jethro was born in 2010, later that year he was diagnosed with an extremely rare and life-threatening condition Atypical Hemolitic Uremic Syndrome. This is a condition most prominent in children, and 60% die within the first year of diagnoses..Jethro is already beating the odds.

The only medicine available to treat this condition is Soliris, according to Forbes Magazine, it is the single most expensive drug in the world, costing $500,000 per year. This medicine is not funded in NZ, leaving it up to Jethro's family to raise so they can save his life. So please support Jethro and Dave!
