Gord's Avastin Goal
I need your help in achieving my goal of raising $47,000. Avastin is not a cure, but it will help to prolong my life.
I want to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary with my wife and live to see my kids continue to develop into the incredible people they are.
Note: For those of you whose lives have been blessed with knowing Gord, you know what an infectious personality he has and what an incredible friend he is. Everyone has been touched by cancer to some degree. As it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a village to fight cancer. Gord and his family can use any and all support as they embark on this long, difficult journey. Donations will afford Gord the best possible medical treatment, as well as relief from the financial stress the medication is creating. All donations received go directly toward medical care.
I received my first Avastin infusion this past Thursday and have suffered no ill side effects so far. At my last oncologist appointment, he told us that a recent study completed by a doctor in L.A. demonstrated greater effectiveness with a lower dose than previously used, given less frequently. The doctor has started me on half the previously used dose every 3 weeks. The advantage of this is that each dose will cost much less than originally anticipated which means that the money you have helped us raise will go much further. I will have another MRI after receiving two infusions to determine its effectiveness. We continue to be very grateful for everyone's generosity and kindness. Your support continues to help us during this very difficult time. Gord, Angie, Megan and Lucas
I can't express enough thanks to everyone who has donated. 5 dollars and up it all counts. Bless you all. Lots of love lots of smiles still as well. Even though I have felt tons better. Not sure when this treatment will get underway. MRI on May 6 then Dr appointment on the 15th. I'm a flipping pin cushion. :-) I will try my best to keep the updates coming. Love to all of you hugs too.
I want to thank all my family and friends an ex coworkers. Hockey buddies
Oh ! And Gord !!! You MUST have lemon juice in every glass of water you drink. Cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment. Drink Soy milk, not cows milk, (milk makes a mucus that cancer thrives in) and if you can, have about 60 apricot kernels a day. They have arsenic in them that will attack all the free radicals/cancer.
Gord ! You need to be drinking the paw paw leaf brew mate. I was diagnosed with Very Aggressive Metatastic Malignant Melanoma from a tumor in my left groin. Told I would never beat it, I would/may get 5 years after surgery, told I would be in hospital DEFINITELY for 7 days if not 10, told I HAD to have Chemo, no way out of it, told I would be in excruciating pain and would have a tap hooked up to me to suit myself for the pain relief and much more. I walked normal the morning I got up to shower and loo etc., out of hospital in less than 2 days, ZERO pain and soreness, NO CHEMO has been mentioned, my 12 month Post Op Pet Scan showed a tumor in my left armpit has gone, and not a cancer cell in my body. Some people call it Papaya, we Aussies call it Paw Paw. You boil the leaves up for 15 mins, strain, drain into a washable pouring jug, chill and drink it till it comes out of your ears. A batch only lasts 5 days, but you should be boiling these up and drinking them with in 3 days or less. Get into it mate and watch your PSA's go down.
