A Loving Fathers' Treatment to Live

My name is Hazel Justin and this is  my father Samson Justin.

Like any other family we immigrated to Canada in 2011 with lots of hope to start a new life with my mom Sunita Justin and twin brother Kenith Justin. It was my dads dream to get us to Canada and for us to continue our studies here and start a life full of opportunities. My dad Samson Justin is like any other father the most hardworking man I have ever seen . 

In September 2016 suddenly my dad felt abdominal pain and his skin started to yellow. My dad didnt think much of it, he continued to work until we forced him to see the doctor. That was the day when we got the most unexpected answer from the doctors report diagnosing him with Pancreatic adenocarcinoma cancer. To this day we can not believe that this is even true and happening to our family.  My dad was the healthiest man we have ever known and suddenly his health declined in the matter of months.

Doctors are saying alot of things that we are trying to understand but nothing is making sense. My dad that used to be responsible of everything happening in our family is the one suffering from Pancreatic cancer and falling weaker as the days are passing.  He had undergone surgery to remove the tumor however the surgery itself wasnt successful. He needs to undergo many other treatments.

Furthermore, all his medical cost are pilling up and we are getting desperate of how to take care of it.  We tried selling  valuable things we own like any family would do in exchange to afford the treatment. The insurance we have is not covering much at all. Me and my brother are struggling to find a balance between school to be able to pay the bills that my dad used to take care of. However me and my brother  are not able to keep up with the expenses and provide the amount needed for the cancer treatment. Since, my dad is getting weaker due to the cancer my mom had to stop working in order to take care of him.

The doctors say his body is too weak to undergo chemotherapy  treatment . However,there are some alternative program, less agressive and volatile than chemo available in other countries like USA and Mexico. It has the potential to kill cancer cells and promote healing.However, we cannot afford this treatment. We are already strugging under the financial burden this illness has brought to our family. All we need is to be able to afford the expenses of the treatment and my dad will have hope to be healthy again and continue living. Please give my dad a chance to recover and keep our family together. We have full faith in God that everthing will happen for the best and send us people like you our way.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
