ASB Good As Gold: Chris Moverley

ASB Good as Gold is an ASB initiative recognising, rewarding and helping wonderful people in our community. We ask the public to nominate people, who are making a real difference in their community, have grabbed hold of life against the odds or who really deserve help in a time of hardship. The recipients are featured on TV One’s Seven Sharp programme. 

Chris Moverley is an amazing woman, a wonderful wife and an extraordinary mother. She is facing the reality of a Stage 4 ovarian cancer diagnosis with resolute positivity. She recently made the decision to stop all cancer treatment when it was clear it was not helping, and indeed, was making her too ill to enjoy the rest of her time with her family - husband Lou and nine year old daughter, Siena.

Wanting to ensure they create special memories for Sienna as a family, Chris and her husband, Lou, have decided to take  a once in a lifetime family trip together. They want to see orangutans in Singapore, ride horses in Hyde Park and visit Disneyland in Paris. To make this happen, Chris and Lou have worked every minute of the day to turn this dream into a reality for their daughter – no matter how far it stretched the family finances. 

We heard about Chris’ touching story and knew we wanted to do everything we could to help.  So we’ve blown the budget on this one and have paid for all flights, accommodation, activities and given them spending money to make sure all they need to do is enjoy themselves, without worrying about the budget.

Watch the video to see us surprise the very deserving Chris and her family with the Seven Sharp team.

This is such a deserving couple! And such a beautiful couple. Go guys! For those who don't know, Lou is one of NZs top drummers. It is second only to his family. The sacrifice that he made in selling his drum kit, is unimaginable. I feel privileged just to know them both and are humbled by their commitment to each other.
Enjoy every minute!
