Kyle's Cancer Battle Continues ...

This past May, Kyle was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has, unfortunately, spread to the liver, peritoneal cavity, multiple lymph nodes and bones. 

Kyle and Heather will be celebrating their 7th anniversary later this month.   Kyle is the devoted father of 3 year old Harrison and a baby girl arriving in October. 

Traditional cancer treatments haven't worked for Kyle, however they are not giving up on stabilizing his cancer.  Kyle is now on his second infusion of immunotherapy.  Kyle will receive 4 initial infusions before a further treatment plan is determined.  While immunotherapy is a recognized treatment by OHIP for 7 other cancers, it is not for Kyle's type of cancer although it has been shown to be beneficial in multiple clinical trials.    

The cost of the initial 4 infusions is $80,000 - Kyle receives an infusion once every 3 weeks.  They have received minimal coverage from their drug plan and will receive some help from the pharmaceutical company foundation. However, there is still a significant portion that this young family is financially responsible for and must cover immediately, which they will not be reimbursed for.  They have been told it is unknown how long Kyle will be on this immunotherapy journey, it could 6 months or it could be 2 years or more. 

Kyle, Heather and their family own a lovely, modest home in Kemptville and in raising funds we would like to ensure we can keep them in a place they all feel safe and comfortable.   Kyle has been unable to work for the past 5 months and therefore on a significantly reduced income, and Heather will be focusing on taking care of their newborn, Kyle and Harrison in the coming months.  

Heather and Kyle are always thinking of others.   Heather is a Paramedic for the City of Ottawa for the last decade and dedicated her career to helping others in need.  Let's show them that we stand beside them and send them our prayers, good energy and financial support.
