Rally Around Rhonda - Please support this beautiful, courageous mother on her journey to beat cancer
In 2018 Rhonda was diagnosed with breast cancer after going to see her doctor about a sore rib. She went through surgery five days after her diagnosis and then onto a five month course of chemo and then a daily five weeks of radiation, all whilst trying to take care of her two girls (Chloe, 6 months old and Lola 7 years old).
She has turned to many integrative treatments - including ozone therapy, HOCATT, IVC, CBD, infrared sauna and diet (organic etc) and to this day fills her body with all the nutrients and vitamins needed, avoiding anything that could be toxic or help the cancer in anyway.
Sadly this month, Rhonda was told her cancer had returned and had spread, as doctors had found a spot on her lung that is growing at a rapid pace. Rhonda and her family continue to stay positive as they plan for further treatment. The cost of this and other specialist appointments adds up and has put pressure on Rhonda and her husband while they continue to raise their young family.
An idea on costs -
Immunotherapy $10,000.00 per treatment (many are required)
Integrative infusions $1,500.00 per week
Supplements and non-funded medications $1,500.00 per week
Specialists and Wellness providers $500-$2,000.00 per week
Rhonda is a loving mother, wife, sister and daughter, as well as a caring friend. If you could find it in your heart (and in your pocket) to assist Rhonda and her family on this journey it would be much appreciated.

2020 David Trubridge HUI NZ - An Evening with David Trubridge
We were fortunate to have David and Josh from David Trubridge team visit our showroom and we were impressed by the presentation that David and Josh made. We had a great evening at our showroom hosting David and Josh from David Trubridge along with industry guests. It was a great opportunity to learn more about David’s brand the story, materials and up incoming new designs that are going to be launched in July 2020.
David is truly iconic in the lighting industry and to be able to ask him questions one on one was a great experience for the C & G team.
We also appreciate for the designers who came for the evening,
it was such great discussion and learning time!
