The Story

My name is Ray. I have an wonderful sister who is 43, a loving wife and amazing mother of 3 boys. She has always shown her determination and willingness to succeed throughout her whole life and I am honoured that she is my sister. Tragically, 5 months ago she was diagnosed with stage 3 nasopharyngeal cancer. She was devastated, but her determination to beat this did not waiver. Most recently, her life had been touched by cancer as one of her close friends had succumbed to the disease. She was at his side during his last days and it was one of the most difficult experiences in her lifetime. She witnessed first hand the terrible effects of chemotherapy and radiation. My sister felt that this would not be the path that she would choose as she valued quality of life over the toxic effects and uncertainty of conventional therapy. She wanted to feel well and alive during her treatment, so she focused on alternative cancer therapies. She was right as over the last 5 months, I've never seen her so positive and full of energy. She loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest and did not at all look like an ill person. Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago she suffered a major setback, she had difficulty with her speech and her tongue was weak. She was admitted to hospital where it was found that her cancer had spread and the tumour was increasing in size. When asked by the specialist what she wanted to do, she remained strong in her conviction and chose quality of life and to continue with alternative treatments. She is still very determined to beat this cancer, but we'll need your help. The cost of her alternative cancer treatments are quite expensive and none of it is covered by insurance. Currently she must travel to Calgary from Edmonton for these treatments, so the costs of travel and medical costs are quickly adding up. We are hoping to fundraise $10 000 to cover the cost of her treatment and associated travel costs. This is a lofty goal, but any little bit will help support Susan in her battle with cancer. Her family and especially Susan thanks you for considering this request.

Hi Everyone,
It's been a rough go since I last posted. Susan has developed hearing loss, right eye and facial paralysis. It has been devastating to Susan and her family, which has caused a lot of sadness and stress. It's been such an emotional roller coaster and after all that we have been through in the last 3 months, it has certainly taken a huge toll on Susan and our family.  It's been such a difficult journey for Susan, however the recent worsening of her condition will not prevent her from living her life. She is determined to enjoy each moment and every relationship that she is so blessed to have. Her spirit remains strong, and she will not let the situation take away who she is and the ability to enjoy the moment. Thank you for continuing to keep Susan and her family in your prayers. It gives us all strength and the ability to carry on each day. Our sincere gratitude to all of you for all of your support as it has certainly made a huge difference in helping us cope with such a terrible situation. God Bless!
