Corrine Kucinic's Treatment Fund

Dear Family, Friends and Friends of Friends,

We are creating this page to help support an incredible woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend who lives with cancer. We are hoping to raise money for Corrine Kucinic (nee Anderson) who is battling cancer.

Three years ago, almost to the day, our beautiful Corrine received devastating news. She was diagnosed with stage four Pancreatic Cancer. It was stage four because it had also spread to her liver. At this point she was given only six to eight months to live. We were all shocked and heartbroken. She was only 35 years old at that time. She was too young.  Corrine and her wonderful husband Milan had only been married just over ten years, they have two very young daughters, Isabella and Adriana. They still needed their mommy and wife.

If anyone knows Corrine they understand that she is a fighter. Corrine decided that she was going to push back against this awful cancer. For three long years Corrine has fought the cancer, she has endured over 55 chemo treatments that used to last six hours at the hospital then another 48 hours at home, per treatment. She had a full set of radiation. Day in and day out she has lived with extreme pain, and yet at the end of the day she always smiles and loves her life.

Recently we were extremely saddened to hear that chemo and radiation were no longer working for Corrine and that all avenues from Cancer Care were exhausted. This was the worst possible news. Corrine doesn’t want to stop fighting, her family still needs her. Her young daughters need her.  The love of her life Milan needs her, we all do.  We love her so much.

Corrine has found someone in Manitoba to help beat her cancer. This is an alternative method and not approved by our medical system, but she needs to keep trying to beat this cancer.

So she and Milan need to pay for this treatment out of pocket. The treatment consists of six rounds at $2500 per session.  This is a total of $15 000. Plus Corrine has a bloodclot in her leg that requires a needle everyday for the rest of her life. Unfortunately this expense is not all covered and again they need to pay.

So many people have asked what they can do to help during this difficult time, which is why we have created this page.

The love, kind messages, prayers and support that they’ve received from friends and family over the past three years has truly been overwhelming and extremely appreciated. Please help my sister and the family in fighting this cancer. Every little bit counts, and we all thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts!

With love,
Corrine's family
