So I got the devastating news today from a medical oncologist that I have to come up with an additional $5000-$6000 to pay for cancer drugs that are not covered by BC Medical.
Yes, we are in Canada. In BC. This is not covered by medical.
Who has that kind of extra cash kicking around? ($1500.00 every 3 weeks for 12 weeks)
So we must up the fundraising efforts. I just found this out today and I’m shocked.
The pharmacist is waiting to hear back of possible eligibility to have some of this covered.
But if it is not, I’m looking forking out $1500.00 every 3 weeks for 12 weeks minimum, to boost my white blood cell count, in between chemotherapy treatments.
Add to that, hundreds for anti-nausea drugs also not covered by BC Medical.
Yeah, it’s been a bad day.
I have to have these drugs, as once they do chemo, my cancer cells, and good cells, white blood cells are compromised and I’ll be at great risk for infection, or worse.
Yes, I’m living a nightmare.
I never never ask for money, but if You have a blog or a website, or an email list, or Twitter, Facebook, anywhere you can share the fundraising link to the right, yeah, now I’m desperate.
Chemotherapy starts Friday morning.
Can you share this around please? There’s also a widget. Grab the code for blogs, websites.
Every penny helps. It doesn’t take much money to give, when it all adds up together.
