Help save Cheryl Patch

$47,309 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 297 people in 2 months
Created December 6, 2017
Dear brothers and sisters,

Shawn Carr is a member of the ILWU Local 502.  His wife Cheryl Patch is currently battling cancer.  The treatment that will save her life is not approved for her particular type of cancer so will not be covered by the BC Cancer Agency.  She has a rare mutation normally only found in other types of cancer.  They have no option but to pay for it on their own if Cheryl is to survive.  The goal is $200,000 which will cover a year of treatment. 

The family has asked me to start this page on their behalf as it is the only way they will be able to afford the treatment. 

Cheryl has started the treatment and things are going well.  I am asking all those that can for afford it at this time to donate to this campaign.   

I have seen the generousity of the membership in the past and I am sure we as a group will come through to help one of our own in need.  

We are about a quarter of the way to our goal.  Please continue to donate.  A small donation every month will ensure we reach our goal. 

Thank you to everyone in advance.

Please share on social media to get the word out. 



An injury to one, is an injury to all.  

In solidarity
