Cynthia's Cancer Battle

$9,915 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 82 people in 39 months
Hi My name is Cynthia and I have cancer, Multiple Myeloma.
I have 2 young adult daughters and a young grandson. I am only 56 years of age. I have been an organic landscaper and farmer for most of my life. I have detailed some of my life experiences on my blog, The Messy Shepherdess . I have raised my family on Salt Spring Island, BC for 20 years and recently moved to Surrey in close proximity to the Fraser Valley Cancer Clinic.
The doctors have done everything they can and I had a brief remission. But it's back now and growing fast. The doctors can't offer me anything else. At the rate it is growing I have about 6 months. I am already feeling the effects of the cancer and will soon be incapacitated. The only recourse I have been able to find that offers any hope is to attend the Budwig Cancer Center in Spain and hope they can slow or stop the progress. They have had a 49% success rate with my type of cancer.
The $20,000 will cover air fare for myself with one daughter and two weeks at the center, where I will be given treatment and learn how to continue that treatment at home.
There is no time to waste, so I am urgently appealing to you to help fund my trip to Spain and the Budwig Cancer Center.  
Even if I don`t reach my goal, any funds I receive will be used towards treatment of my cancer or to help alleviate the expense of burial for my daughters.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any and all help will be so very much appreciated.

When the doctors at the BC Cancer Clinic said there was nothing left that they could do, it was my hope/option to seek alternative treatment. I have researched all the alternative treatment clinics, including those in Mexico and they all cost 10's of thousands of dollars to attend (between $20,000 to $50,000 with on going upkeep once returned home). The Budwig Cancer center in Spain is the only one that can show documented proof of success with Multiple Myeloma, offering the best chance of long term remission. Unfortunately, I have been unable to raise enough to attend.
Thanks to everyone who has donated. The funds from this campaign have gone towards treatments that are keeping me going. However, they have not stopped or slowed down the cancer growth. Presently it doubles every month. My kidneys are filling with toxins again. I am now registering for home care and preparing for what the doctors think is inevitable.
I could still attend the Budwig Center should a significant benefactor come forward to help.
All Donations are still welcome and greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
Sincerely
Cynthia and family.
IT's S P R I N G !!!

Hi Folks - I am not winning this battle. My latest blood work shows only rapid growth of cancer cells. I am so full of cancer right now it is 6 times worse then when I was first diagnosed in March 2014.
So my appeal for help continues. The Go Fund Me campaign will continue, although it is more practical if money is sent to me directly as the Go Fund Me takes 10% off the top of all donations.
Any funds can be sent in an Email Transfer to my cyntht@hotmail.com account. Please believe that every penny is being used and is very much appreciated.

I am very close to getting to go to Spain for the one week program $8,500.00. Since the Canadian dollar is so low my cost estimates have increased from when I first started the campaign. However, right now, I'm just short of the air fares needed for the flight, approx. $2,500.00. I am so close, please help if you can. Thank you to all who have contributed so far!
