Ron Rurak's Cancer Fighting Fund

$3,716 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 78 people in 21 months
Ron was diagnosed with peripheral T-cell lymphoma for the second time in June of 2017. His journey is currently being treated with IV injections that target and kill this type of lymphoma. He will be going to Regina weekly for these 4 hour treatments. I, Donna Rurak will have to accompany him, as he can't drive home after the treatment. These treatments are 3 weeks on, 1 week off. Additionally in the winter, coming up, Ron will be going to Saskatoon for a stem cell harvest and then the stem cell transplant. Ron will remain in isolation for a minimum of 3 weeks to 1 month. I hope to visit weekly- in between running my business- Precious Therapies. Donations for Ron are covering the many trips to Regina, Saskatoon and to assist with better food choices and hotel stays- as his immune system will be compromised- Ron's appointments are currently for 8:15, or 9am in the Friday morning- in case of bad weather, we will be going up- the night before. Thanks for all your donations and Sharing the page.

Hi!

So an update for everyone...

Tomorrow another Dr. Z appointment in Regina- drive home and back in Regina (for the 5 minute push through chemotherapy) on Friday and a drive home again.

Currently this is a common protocol for Ron’s treatments. Sometimes he does good; others I must be there, he sleeps almost all the way home- just outside of Regina I drive...

We were being reimbursed for some of the traveling and food- Thank goodness . However for the whole month of July it isn’t available. Money upfront is tight; as our karate club Income is not there.

We are currently able to pay our regular bills with my income and Ron’s; from our small home-based businesses. We are still doing the best we can.

We will find out the next plan of action this Thursday, and hopefully we can share some better news. Currently it’s been a weekly trip every Friday...3 weeks, and 1 week off.

Bloodwork every Thursday which means always making sure Ron is hydrated, healthy and his workout gets pushed back those days. His normal is living with Cancer... and he still is a certified personal trainer who works from Ramsay’s Gyms!!!

He doesn’t complain that he has had open wounds for “years” on his body and face... but is a bit sensitive- as it makes you uncomfortable to talk with him about it. Hopefully the option of Radiation is a good one. We find out soon. In the meantime, get to know Ron... as his humour and compassion for his “Personal Training” and teaching “Karate” in the fall will continue.

Thank you for your continued support and friendships with us
