Growing up, my brother Eddie and I were very close. Only a year a part we grew up in tough circumstances and formed a special bond that has lasted a lifetime. We both left Winnipeg many years ago but we have stayed in touch on a regular basis ever since. He was recently diagnosed with throat cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Eddie is from Timmons but is receiving treatment in Sudbury. He is staying in a motel so he can be close to his dog, and goes to the hospital daily. Unfortunately none of his family members in Ontario are able to travel to Sudbury for more than a day or two to offer him support.
As of today he has been receiving treatment for 4 weeks and has 3 more. He is beginning to feel the effects, suffering through extreme pain, weakness and severe weight loss. his condition will only worsen and I would like to be there to help him through the worst of it and to help him implement his recovery plan.
I am a recent widow with limited resources, but I would love to be there for my brother who also faces many other challenges.
Please accept my most deeply felt gratitude for this program and for anyone who are able to help.
