Thank you for everyone who has...
Thank you for everyone who has donated to date. 4 weeks ago we worried about reaching one to two treatments worth of funding, with generous gift's of time and effort someone made this possible, someone made it possible for the media to feel this was worthy of discussion. These people will be thank privately and publicly. I am blessed to have such an incredible support team around me, family, friends, and people like you who have donated. Thank you for being part of my life and thank you for being so kind.
Friday night we reached our one year goal, in less then 3 weeks we were able to put our minds at ease that I can continue to go to treatment, Thank you.
We will not raise our goal at this time, we wish others like me to be able to reach out and get the help and funding they need.
I promise to those who are part of my journey that I will keep fighting and for the family that pointed me in the right direction with information and support, that I will help who I can to get Avastin funded!

With the incredible support from friends,...
With the incredible support from friends, family, strangers, media and our MPP, I have happy to say that we never imagined to reach our goal of six months but we did. The one year mark was our second goal and we are close. After visiting with my Dr. on November first, since my last MRI, our first Avastin treatment, the tumour has not gown. So what has been rapid growth now has shown no growth! Yes treatment is working, yes round 1 win! Yes Deb Mathews more evidence! Thank you.

Hi Kimm, I have been following your story on the news and I am so sorry that there are so many roadblocks from the government. As a Natural Medicine practitioner, I am suggesting that you not wait for the government to fund this drug for you as you have no time to waste. There are many natural healing products out there that can help you. One I would recommend is Nigella Sativa which is an oil. You may also want to look into the protocol through the Gerson Institute. There are also many good Naturopathic Physicians in the GTA who would love to work with you too. God bless you and keep fighting!

I know a wonderful lady who is also battling this disease and I know from watching her that fighters are born everyday, I want you to know that we will keep you in our prayers and hope this medicine not only helps prolong your stay here on earth but gives you precious moments to cherish with your family members.

A very good family friend is also on Avastin. Roche funded part of the cost of the drug for him. Have you asked for assistance from the drug company?

I am thinking about you and your family and am thrilled that you have been able to start treatment. I am even more thrilled to hear that it has not grown. Small successes need to be celebrated and cheered! I am glad to hear the people of Ontario are supporting you and your family when the government has failed! Bless you all and my thoughts are with you for continues successes!

I am so disappointed in Dale Goldhawk at Zoomer Radio. As host to a massive radio audience it could have been a golden opportunity to broadcast on Kimm's dire situation, I emailed him 3 times, but he did not say a word about it. So much for his professional. Brand Goldhawk Fights Back, well he should feel very ashamed .

This is by far the worst story I have read in our paper. I am ashamed to be an Ontarian today from this government we support. I pray for you and I wish you true healing and many many days with your family. I wish I could donate more but I hope during your time they find more than this drug. I hope the media, in this instance, can shame the government in to actually doing something useful with their time.

Hi Kim I have recently vacationed in Portugal and found out that there is a foundation in Lisbon that is getting a cancer (tumor) fighting machine that is unique in the world. It can eradicate tumors in just one dose. Even advanced tumors with no side affects. here is the link to the story http://www.portugaldailyview.c om/whats-new/portugal-champali maud-foundation-to-get-single- session-radiotherapy-equipment Also I will provide you the link to the foundation http://www.fchampalimaud.org/e n/the-foundation/ we have never met yet your story touched me and I would feel terrible if I didn't try to help. I hope you read this or that someone who knows you forwards it to you. Stay Strong.

I have asked dale goldhawk to discuss your situation on his radio show tomorrow,Goldhawk Fights Back, in the hopes that his massive audience out there in Ontario make the people ashamed of their decisions. Kimm you are indeed a beautiful mum with a loving family and hundreds are praying for you. I will donate to you some cash but also prayers for a miracle and that the powers that be will find common sense and grant you what you need most right now,

Kimm, Try contacting the organization Liuna in Oakville as they have a Corporate Social Responsibility program and donate to help those in need locally. I bet they would be willing to help as so many of those in their union reside in the Halton area and are Moms and Dads. Good luck!

I am sorry to hear this news tonight! My heart goes out to you and your family - it is such a tough time to get through and the last thing you need to worry about is money! I have recently had a brain tumor removed (stage 2 to 3 - they can't decide) and I have been hearing about the cost of this drug and the chemo pills - have you tried the Trillium Drug Program? Or maybe whoever wins the 649 million tonight will send some dollars your way! I hope you reach your goal and you get the chance to make many more memories with your dear family!

I can't stop thinking about your plight. It is beyond frustrating that the government will not support treatments such as yours. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. No doubt, the kindness of others will get you to your goal. It is a shame that the elected government does not back what its people clearly support.

Heard your interview on CFRB 1o1o today. It is heartbreaking but I also know that Ontarians come through even when they're elected politicians don't care. Our family is praying that you will receive the help you need. And judging by the funds raised here so far...you will!
