Please see bottom for update. Thank you. I have worked at Zellers for 15 years from 1995 to 2010 when I decided to make a change and continue my retail career from November 2010 until November 2016 at Shoppers Drug Mart, City centre, Campbellton NB, when I was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in Campbellton N.B. I am presently on my third kind of chemo therapy called CAV, This will be my last resort to make the remainder of my existence that I have left as comfortable as medicaly possible. As care needed for myself increased, my spouse had to often stop working therefor increasing financial pressure and stress as I am now resorting to asking for your support. I would never ask for support unless absolutely necessary. I have been independant all of my life. My spouse will soon have to stop working to care for me. This will help care of me 24/7. I receive treatments every 22days. I will know if the treatments are working in a couple of weeks. If it has not worked, I am told by Dr Finn that there is nothing else he will be able to do for me going forward. I have had thyroid cancer in 2006 which was quickly taken care of luckily giving me a few more years. Now I am nearing the end of my time with this terminal lung cancer. As my spouse has before and will have to stop working to care for me, financial status has gone to the worst. Your support with your generous donations will help with ongoing monthly medications, special medical trips and other medical necessities and cost. I have waited until now as a very last resort to require help to help cover for expenses as two of the medications are now over $240 plus the many more that I need and will need for the remainder of my time. This is why I need your support to help me on the remainder of my journey. In advance, I thank everyone who can an are willing to help support. I ask for your support to help to take me through my remainder of the journey.I wish you all a long and healthy life, cause without health, we have nothing, And life is so much shorter than we think while we are healthy. Again, Thank You from the bottom of my heart. Update march 22,2018 Saw the doctor this week and he has confirmed what I did not want to hear. He is stopping my treatments because it is not working to his satisfaction. Funny how treatments stop but not the meds. Non reversable damage? I will be looking into a few other options if acceptable. If all of this does or not work, I would like to thank all who have in one way or another, supported my family. You truly have very big hearts.
