As a friend, I would like to start up this fund for a family who desperately needs help. Fred Cosman from Princeton, BC has recently been diagnosed with Cancer. He has cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma on his nose and requires radiation immediately and the system has him waiting while his condition worsens .He has waited for 6 months for diagnosis and now a month has gone by and still no word of treatment. Their story went on Global News tonight so maybe now things will move for them. Funds are needed to travel as Princeton is a rural area and the cost for this family for health care are astronomical. If he doesn't get the help that he needs right away, they will have to travel to the U.S. for treatment. I've added a Link above, in the Updates section of the Global News Clip. Please Help. To add to his problems, Fred has been in a wheelchair for the past 10 years due to a mining accident.

So I have been asked to give an update on Fred. So despite 2 different full sets of chemo his type of cancer is not being responsive to the treatment so now he has started radiation. He has had one treatment so far but they can only do small sections at a time. So if his body is responsive to the radiation he will be transferred somewhere in North America to have a full body radiation treatment. He is in hospital at the moment for dehydration but will hopefully be home soon

Fred has seen the cancer specialist again this week and has been disappointed with his recovery rate so far so wants to try a couple of more aggressive chemo drugs as well as sending him to vancouver to have a stem cell transplant to help aid him to a full recovery .... We have a lot of decisions to make in the next two weeks and have begun getting info on both alternatives ....Hoping things start working for Fred soon ....

Friends, please share, Fred started Chemo on Friday. They need to travel back and forth from Princeton to both Kelowna and Penticton . 3 of his 5 meds that he starts today are NOT covered, and they're very costly. Thank You !

Fred, hope you get completely cured. What a shameful system to make you wait this long with an obviously serious condition.
