Bring Theresa Home

Hi Guys,

As most of you will know Theresa was diagnosed with Cancer a couple of weeks ago.

Theresa desperately wants to return home to Canada to have her treatment and be with her family and friends.

Sounds simple, but sadly the law in Canada states that a returning citizen cannot automatically have access to Medical Care and they must wait 2/3 months. We appealed this decision but it got refused (only 10 out of 1000's a year get through). As Theresa cannot wait 3 months, she will need private treatment for this time period till she can access her entitlement to Canadian Medical and then finish her treatment on the Medical in Canada.

There a number of fundraising events happening to help get Theresa back to Canada and help with the medical costs (for the first 2/3 months). I found this useful website and thought we should give it a shot as ever penny will count.

On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone who has helped us out so far from looking after the kids, to messages of support I am amazed at how much it does really help to keep Theresa moving forwards and spirits high. If you told me 4 weeks ago I would be writing this message to raise money for Theresa to be treated of Cancer I would never have believed it.

Thank you so much and please consider sharing this on your facebook page.


With much love,
