Help Margit Beat Cancer

In 2005 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. I did 6 rounds of chemotherapy, 15 rounds of radiation and 2 surgeries. After 6 years clear my cancer returned as Metastatic Breast Cancer (this is the terminal last stage) and it continues to erode my spine, ribs and hips which gives me chronic debilitating pain as the disease progresses daily.  It will continue to either my liver, brain, or lungs. Apparently 30% of all cancers return as Metastatic. The outlook is not the brightest.  Now after 7 years of numerous radiations, hormonal therapy and surgeries on my spine the ONLY treatment left is chemotherapy. My husband died tragically in 2015 which devastated our little family not only emotionally but financially.  I have not worked since November 2014 and collect Canadian Pension Plan Disability.  My daughter and I live in a small condo in Maple Ridge and things remain very tight financially leaving us without a penny every month.  The chemotherapy I'm receiving helps with some of the pain but I have more faith in immunology to help rid me of this Cancer or put it into remission. This is in a start up phase here in Canada and not everyone is eligible. Unfortunately this  medication has been approved by Health Canada but not the BC Cancer Agency.  Some Extended Health Plans will cover it partially but I am not a person with extended health so it remains that I cannot even try it.  Please help us with the financial burden of fighting this disease as well as the day to day struggles that would be easier to deal with if I could work. My daughter will be left alone if I can't get well. She is attending school trying make a better life for us and herself.  At the same time she does everything at home, shopping, laundry, cooking , taking care of the dog and cleaning as well as trying to study and keeping her grades up. Did I mention she is the back literally for the both of us because I am unable to do some of the most simplest things for myself.

Thank you for reading my story.
