Hope is on the Way!
Today my brother Jesse went with my parents to Vancouver, Canada to see a cancer specialist who treats patients like my father dealing with his type of cancer. The center is called LEMMO Integrated Cancer Care I received a glowing phone call on their way home about all the hope they were given on curing his cancer! The specialist is Dr. Lemmo, Bastyr trained and originally from Seattle. I would love to tell you that every great cancer treatment center in Seattle can help my father, but there are many more solutions to cure cancer than chemo and radiation. Don't get me started on American politics with cancer treatments or the FDA, I could give you an earful.
I also wish I could tell you they were going over to Vancouver BC to watch the Olympics, I truly do!! But due to America's restrictions with certain treatments, they had to seek medical help out of the country to get the treatment my father needs. It doesn't cost any more than the standard treatments we would be settling with in the states, in fact, most of them are less expensive! And guess what!? The survival rates are higher!
More importantly than ever, we couldn't do it alone!!! With your help we are able to continue these medical treatments for my father and I couldn't be more excited and thrilled at the outpouring of your generous support for my father's treatments! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I'm still planning a fundraiser! Thank you all for wanting to help! I will be in touch soon!
