Child Cancer Foundation’s great work •From page 5 “I had a game with another patient where we would try to do the most crazy thing we could think of while attached to the pump. So I scooted around the wards with it. But then she brought in a unicycle and carried a baby around while attached to her pump. That was hard to beat,” he laughed. He also has fun with the hospital staff. “We play a game with the anaesthetist where he will set a total for me to count to before I fall asleep,” he said. He said he had beaten the anaesthetist a few times, but sometimes he would cheat. “I would pretend to push the button that started the drugs and start counting, by time they had realised that I hadn’t pushed it I had already counted to about 10,” he laughed. Jonty attends Cashmere Primary School and will be starting year six next year. He loves to draw and has taken to designing houses. Earlier in the year, he designed new railroad lines for Kaikoura to replace theose earthquake-damaged. While he does get tired easy, he loves to get out and play
because of his low immunity. “It annoys me. I love sushi,” he said. Jonty has an older brother and sister. Olivia, 20, recently raised more than $2800 for the foundation by running in the Dunedin Marathon.His brother Angus, 18, who he just calls ‘Gus’, is an idol of Jonty’s.
