Patricia's Platoon

Most of you don't know me, and most of you don't know my mom. However, in 2007 my mom Patricia was diagnosed with breast cancer that eventually metastasized. For those of you who don't know what that is Metastatic cancer is cancer that has spread from the place where it first started to another place in the body. Since then the breast cancer has come back twice, spread to her lungs, bones and her skin. Most recently the doctors at the red deer cancer clinic found multiple metastatic tumours in her brain.

For previous treatments Patricia has done radiation, chemotherapy, and even had surgery. However, chemotherapy does not work with cancer in the brain, these particular tumours are inoperable, and radiation would only prolong her life for a short time 

We have found a clinic in Mexico that offers alternate cancer treatment that is not available in Canada. We have done our research and have decided that this clinic can help save her life.

Patricia is the most caring, kind, and genuine person I have ever met. She has helped so many people from family to random strangers. She puts everyone before herself and never asks for anything in return.

My dad, Darren, has not been working due to a slow down in the oil industry.

Normally, Patricia and Darren would not ask for charitable donations; They are usually the first people to donate.

However, the cost of this clinic that could save her life is $53,000 and that does not include air fair. Unfortunately... We just don't have that. I know some of you have also been affected by the slow oil industry, but any donation helps. We are hoping to raise as much money within the next two weeks so we can start treatment as soon as possible.

Please join Patricia's Platoon and help us kick this cancer in the ass for good.
