Belle River native, Kevin Graham, 42, is fighting Glioblastoma "“ a brain tumor that, although being surgically removed twice, has returned and requires treatment. This time, surgery is not an option. The treatment that shows promise in slowing regrowth is a chemotherapy drug that OHIP and Kevin's private health insurance plan do not provide coverage for. The cost is exorbitant. Kevin and his wife Dana will be expected to pay about $10,000 per month. Had they and their three children been residents of B.C., Manitoba or Saskatchewan, the treatment would have been covered by provincial health care.
The Grahams are a wonderful and hard- working family who have a fantastic support system of family and friends. Those countless people would like to reduce the financial stress on the family, so that they can focus on the positive attitude needed to fight this fight, and enjoy their family time during this time of healing.
This loving family cannot be expected to shoulder this financial burden themselves on a single income. This is where you can help! Any donation at all will help to ease this burden, and assist in relieving the additional stress that they should not be suffering at such a difficult time.
