Little Joseph's Road to Recovery

On February 17th,2018  a month shy of his 1st birthday,  our son Joseph was rushed to hospital where he was diagnosed with Choroid Plexus Papilloms (CPP)  Brain Tumor.  He was transferred to McMaster's Children Hospital where he underwent a successful brain surgery to remove the tumor,  although during the MRI it was discovered that he also has a small tumor on the base of his spine which still needs to be removed.

 In light of all this I have been unable to go back to work after my maternity leave and I do not qualify for EI as I have not worked enough hour's to qualify for a Critical Illness Leave and Joseph needs round the clock care and has many doctor's appointments on a daily basis.  This has left our family struggling to make ends meet and we are reaching out to our friends and family for help. Please consider donating if you're able to. 
All the money raised will go towards our family bills and everyday expenses until Joseph has fully recovered and I am able to get back to work. 

Thank you for your help it is greatly appreciated.
