Her cancer treatment has consisted of a surgery, chemotherapy, and a natural path. Justina goes for chemotherapy every 2 weeks. She is currently at home recovering from her last round. For anyone that has had cancer or has watched someone struggle with it, you know that chemo is the worst part. It makes you sick, weak, drains all of your energy, and makes it very difficult to carry out daily activites and enjoy life. After chemo treatments, Justina goes to natural path clinic and recieves 'boosters' after every chemo session to help her body recover. These boosters make daily life a lot eaiser, ease chemo sickness, and help her body regain it's strength to so that she is well enough for her next round of chemo.
Unfortunately these treatments are very expensive, and even with a full time single income from her husband and family support, there is not enough money for her to keep getting the treatment that she needs to function. (Justina is unable to work due to a previous injury resulting in a broken back, as well as the chemo sickness). Each treatment costs around $800 (about $1600/month) and is nover covered by Ohip or by a medical plan.
Without the chemo, the doctors estimated a survival timeline of 1 year. She has missed over half of her scheduled chemo treatments because her body was too weak from the previous session.
If you are able, a donation of any amount to help Justina afford her 'boosters' would be greatly appreciated. They have an immediate impact on her day to day life, as well as her survival chances. We also aske that you keep Justina in your prayers, we know they make a difference!
On behalf of Justina and her family, thank you for taking the time to read her story and for your support.
