Paul's journey to kicking Cancer!

Paul's Journey began in 2011 when he was diagnosed with CLL(chronic lymphatic leukemia), we were told he would go years without any problems.

They were wrong, in 2014 Paul underwent his first 8 weeks of chemo and almost didn't make it.  And it didn't work, he continued his struggle for another 2 years trying alternative therapy, intravenously, diet, supplements, etc. and still is doing so today. We truly believe this is the reason why he is still alive.
 
As we know Cancer is not cheap and so we have depleted all of Paul's RRSP's and all our savings trying to keep him & his journey alive.

In 2016 he was accepted into a clinical trial and after almost 6 1/2 years his lymphocytes have finally moved into the safe zone, this has only been in the last 3 months. Unfortunately, the drug he is on has caused more problems with the side effects, he is not producing enough iron, and his energy is not returning as quick as it use to, even just walking the dogs.

Paul needs his intravenous Vit C as it gives him the energy to function during the day. At cost of $126.00 per treatment he has slowed his visits, he has gone from weekly (sometimes twice a week) to every two weeks or more. Or when it is just too difficult to get it up face the day.
It is costing us in the area $1000.00 a month between his supplements and his alternative treatments.

The money we are hoping to raise will give Paul another year of alternative treatments and the strength to kick cancer in the butt even harder.
We know this time of year is difficult for many families and this year ours is one of them. We have set aside our pride and are asking for your help.
We thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts ❤️
