Julia is a single Mom of a 5 year old boy living in Victoria BC. She stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma, with only months to live. But there is hope. There is a treatment that can provide Julia with hope. Hope and more time with her son Lucas. The treatment comes to Canada in November, but that would be too late for Julia. Doctors have offered Julia the chance to go to California to receive the PD1 treatement now through compassionate use. The medication is free. Unfortunately, airfare, hotel, taxi, blood work and doctor's fees are not covered. Let's not let money stand in the way of giving Lucas a life with his Mommy. More informartion is avilable in the "updates" section.
There will also be updates on Facebook. https://m.facebook.com/SavingJuliaandLucas
To donate off line, there is a trust fund is at any Island Savings bank under the name "Julia and Lucas Trust Account" or acct # 2219467
***UPDATE. After raising our goal of $20,000, I have been contacted by many wonderful supporters who are urging me to increase the goal! Julia will have the money to get to her treatments in Toronto, and any extra funds will go into the trust account for Lucas! Thank you so much to all of Julia's supporters! I have increased the goal XOXOXOX.
