Cancer patient Jarred Thompson, who was mistaken in Fiji before flying to New Zealand, died.
His friend, Thomas Brook, told Facebook that the 27-year-old Thompson, from Napier, died in the early morning hours of Wednesday morning.
"Our friends, friends, friends, family, supporters and people who have touched this young man's life." Our brother, father, son, cousin, relatives and dear friend Jarred Cole Thompson made his transition from this life, then Brook wrote.
"Jarred was in the comfort of his family home in Taupō since Saturday, surrounded by his beloved family and his beloved friends to the end."
* The State collects money to bring home the sick Napier Man Jarred Thompson
* Cancer patient Jarred Thompson returns to NZ
* Collect friends to bring cancer patient to home
Thompson moved to Oakland Hospital after the public helped raise over $ 35,000 to bring him home. The goal was $ 27,000.
Thompson's journey to Fiji was planned a year ago, shortly before being diagnosed with testicular cancer. The cancer then spread to the lungs and liver.
Part of the planned monthly vacation was in a wellness camp, which Thompson saw would improve his health.
But he suffered from headache and felt unwell a few days after the camp. Thompson ended up vomiting and lost his speech before being transferred to Fiji's hospital.
Brooke said he wanted to thank everyone who "touched not only the life of man, but touched his story."
"We were together in the unit to give a little bit and to achieve something beautiful. Because of your love, we got Jarred home and from the heart of my heart, thank you for the gift of time you gave to Jarred and family and friends. "
The Givealittle page has been extended instead of Thompson's death news, Brook said.
The funds would be intended for anyone who wanted to support Thompson's family, especially his mother and daughter.
