in honour of her Nan
Magic netball team were at a special brain tumour support fundraiser in Rotorua today in honour of Addy, the grandmother of a young Māori girl.
10-year-old Tyla-Jaz, who says her grandmother was her best friend, came up with the idea for the fundraiser.
"Last year, my Nan passed away from a brain tumour," says Tyla-Jaz, who set up a small stall 'TJ & Co' at Geyser City Squash courts.
"It's a fundraiser for NZ Brain Tumour Support, they have their awareness week starting this week," her dad said.
"It's a special kaupapa for our whānau, we lost my mother-in-law, my partner Keita's mother, to brain cancer.
