My sister Sylvie has been battling cancer for 11.5 years and is currently battling for the 7th time! In 2005 it was stage 0 breast cancer and now after 49 chemo therapies, 15 radiations, 8 surgeries, countless MRI, CT Scan, x-rays, bone scans, and weekly blood work it metastasized to stage 4 and is now in both lungs. They have given her 6 months to live but she has passed that already. Her palliative home care team is just staying on top of the pain medication and keeping her as comfortable as possible as each day is truly a gift. She is a little more on borrowed time then most. We unfortunately live at opposite ends of the country which makes it hard for me to be there to help her with even everyday things. We were not raised together, I was put up for adoption at the age of 2 and we found each other about 23 years ago. Now we don’t want to waste whatever time we have since we have already lost so much. Thank you for having this program that was told to us by her nurse and social worker. We hope you can help us spend some precious time together very soon.
