My partner, Michael Hight, is donating a painting to the auction as are many other NZ artists. Having had a breast cancer diagnosis myself, I strongly support this auction.

 

What is Redfox? Redfox is an art auction/silent auction organised by the friends of Claire McLintock to raise funds for her treatment for advanced breast cancer.
Claire was first diagnosed and treated for breast cancer 14 years ago. At the time, her daughters Hart and Vita were seven and three years old. Last month, just as her Hart turned 21, Claire found out that the breast cancer had come back and this time it has spread to her abdomen.


Focusing on what can be done to improve her outcome, Claire and
her husband John Reynolds travelled to the UK to see oncology specialists with the support of her specialist here in New Zealand. They recommended a new drug, Palbociclib, which has been shown to keep the cancer controlled for a much longer time when taken with standard treatment. Palbociclib is not currently funded or available in New Zealand and the drug costs around $6,000 a month. Claire needs to keep taking the drug for as long as it works.

Please join us in supporting Claire, John, Hart and Vita at the Redfox Art Auction. The auction is to raise funds to help pay for a new, ground-breaking (but expensive) cancer drug.


The auction will take place on August 26th
at 5pm at The Tuning Fork, Spark Arena with MC Jacinda Ardern. There will be a live and silent auction with raffles and a few surprises including a special guest musical performance and a complimentary Redfox cocktail and wine for your $25 entry.
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our artist friends who have offered some amazing works that we know will find the perfect home. We will be in touch again
soon when we launch the online catalogue.
