I am writing on behalf of Adora, she is a 43 year old woman living in Calgary Alberta. She lives with her husband Richard and her two daughters (9 and 11 years old). Life was good until Adora became ill in October 2016. She came into hospital with Jaundice and soon found out that she has a metastatic pancreatic cancer. She is trying to get strong but has had to endure several trips to the operating room. She was also critically ill and required ICU admission.

She and Richard have no family in Alberta. All her family are in the Philippines. Adora is not able to return to work. Richard has been struggling to work care for his children and come to see his wife. If she gets stronger she may be able to have palliative chemo therapy. This will not cure her but may help with symptom control. Her prognosis is very poor and may have a few months to live.

Adora would like her older sister to come to Calgary to help her with her family and be there for support. Please consider our request to have her family member flown to Calgary. She has a visa and is ready to come to Canada. We thank you so much in advance for your support and consideration.
