In December 2021 Brittany Kremers, a then 25-year-old woman who was denied desperately needed facial surgery at the eleventh hour by the Christchurch DHB.
The reason given was there was no funding available.
Brittany had had her jaw and skull base removed, along with a life-threatening tumour, in 2006.
A family friend set up a Give-a-little page which raised over $280 thousand dollars.

Brittany's mum, Dawn Kremers, joins Kerre Woodham to chat about the situation.
