Stevie-Ray Tiopira, aged 10, has terminal cancer in his backbone and is in a wheelchair. He needs to use a taxi van to attend therapy and school at the Wilson Home in Takapuna and to see his doctor at Starship, but four times in the past fortnight he has missed appointments, therapy and schooling because the taxi failed to arrive.
