Four years ago, Dwight was diagnosed with Paranasal Sinus Cancer requiring 3 operations and as he was on the road to recovery was diagnosed with Melanoma. After a difficult year of being unable to work and undergoing 8 operations, Dwight was finally on the road to a healthy recovery and hoping for a good prognosis. Unfortunately, just two years later the couple was set to face another harsh reality when Dwight found himself battling cancer once again. This time it was in the form of Advanced Melanoma with spots showing on his kidneys, requiring more operations and more treatments. An incredibly strong and determined person, Dwight continued to work during his treatments so he could support his family, pay their bills and be there for their children never once asking for help.
This Christmas the couple received the most heart breaking news when they found out Jeanne was also diagnosed with Stage 4 Acute Myeloid Leukmia and she will need a bone marrow donor. In order to complete her treatments the couple will need to leave their home in Dieppe and stay in Halifax for at least 8 weeks. Despite Dwight’s ongoing battle with cancer and his own need to continue treatments he insists on never leaving his wife’s side as she goes through her battle with cancer.
This GoFundMe account is setup to help this couple make it through the financial hardships coming their way as they continue to face cancer and the challenges it will bring. The donations will go towards their Out of Province medical expenses not covered by insurance or Medicare and to alleviate the financial stress of needing to be off work. Please, any donation no matter the size. Be one of the people to give this couple a chance to be there for each other as they battle cancer together, for better and for worse, through sickness and health, forever and always.
