Narda and Brian Hunt

Narda has been given less than two years to live. We want to do everything we possibly can to turn that into 10 years. Help Narda get the treatment she needs to extend her life and raise her daughters.



History

Narda grew up in South Africa. She lost her mom to cancer when she was seven years old. Seventeen years later she married the love of her life in his parents living room in Canada. They have two beautiful daughters that are seven (Olivia) and nine (Annabella). In 2011 Narda was diagnosed with breast cancer and learned that she carried the BRCA2 gene that she subsequently learned runs in her family. 


She underwent chemotherapy and thought she had beaten the disease. Then in 2017 a routine CAT scan after a ski accident revealed a tumor on her liver. Tests revealed it was the same cancer as before, now in metastatic form. There is no known cure and 50% of patients do not survive two years. 

Narda wants to live 10 years so she can raise her daughters to young adulthood with Brian, as she knows too well the cost of not having a mother during teen years.  



Treatment


To fight this horrible disease Narda needs to explore and undergo treatments not currently available in Canada that will enhance the effectiveness of the chemotherapy she is receiving. Cancer drugs and treatments often have decades-long trial periods before becoming available for widespread use and Narda simply cannot wait. 

There is a regional treatment available in Germany that has had tremendous effects for people in Narda’s situation. Pursuing this treatment would cost $147,000 in medical bills alone. They are still deciding what to do, consulting with their Canadian oncologist, but this route looks promising as a way to dramatically increase Narda’s life expectancy.

Making a Difference

Narda wants to make sure that her fight will impact and inspire others.  The reality is if Narda had known she was a carrier of the BRCA gene she could have had surgery that would have reduced her chances of having cancer from more than 85% to less than 3%. It would have saved her life. 

Narda’s husband Brian is a professional filmmaker, and together they will document Narda’s story and crusade to ensure all women are tested for the BCRA genes so they can take action to prevent cancer. 

We need to raise this money NOW so Narda can begin to get the treatment she needs. Please help us raise the money to make sure Brian and Narda can raise their beautiful daughters, Olivia and Annabella, together.

This time last year our friends launched a GoFundme page to raise funds to help pay for Cancer treatment for my Stage 4 Breast Cancer with Metastasis to my Liver. My liver was starting to fail and Doctors in Canada gave me weeks left to live. Thanks to the support from so many people on GoFundMe we were able to raise the funds for me to go and get Live saving Treatment at the Medias Klinikum Burghausen Germany. Watch the video to see how Narda is doing now!
