Eugenie's cancer journey has entered the next phase and requires non-funded drug treatment.
Eugenie is my wonderful wife and mother to our three children Josie (10), Annushka (8) and Toby (4). In Jan of 2016 Eugenie was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma (GBM), a very aggressive brain tumour. She underwent a course of radiation and chemotherapy early in 2016. She had responded extremely well and has, as we joke at home, gone past her 'use by date' by a considerable time period. We had seen the tumour shrink and enjoyed the benefits that that entailed. We are two years down the path now and the tumour is now growing rapidly again. The treatment that is available to us and has been recommended for Eugenie by two Oncologists, is not funded by the government. The treatment is a drug called Bivacizumab.
#### UPDATE ####
Eugenie has been taking the drug for the last two months and has had an MRI recently. The results were very good. The swelling has reduced considerably and the tumour has not progress in the last two months. Eugenie is able to reduce her other medications that have undesirable side effects. The money already donated totaling $20,960.00 has been used to pay for the last 5 treatments. Each two weekly treatment costs almost $5,000.00 we need to fund 6 more treatments for Eugenie to maximise the benefit of this drug. This page has been extended to enable us to fundraise further as we now know the drug is working.
The funds generously donated would be used for paying for the drug Bivacizumab and the associated costs of administering the drug through a private hospital.
