Jess' fight against cancer

It all started a few weeks ago when Jessica went to a walk in clinic to get checked out for something that she called a ‘slight discomfort’. This visit soon turned into a nightmare. Jessica was living a healthy life, until she was diagnosed with a very rare form of cervical cancer. The last few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for Jess and her loved, ones, to say the least.

We have known Jessica for almost 10 years when she joined our team at LASIK MD. And have shared many fond memories in this past decade. She is one of the kindest, funniest and positive person that one will ever meet. We may not have the chance to see her every day as she made the move from Montreal, QC to Victoria, BC a few years ago. But despite the physical distance, Jess has always been there to cheer us on and make us laugh, in good and in hard times.

The news has obviously led to multiple questions and concerns, including finances. And the last thing that we want is for Jess to have to worry about finances while she undergoes over 4 months of chemotherapy and radiation. We want Jess to be able to focus on the positive, and nothing else. 

 Although it may be an ambitious goal, we are striving to raise $10,000. Any amount, whether large or small, will help make a difference. 

Thank you very much for your support and for sharing this message with those who may be interested in joining our cause.
