Mum was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer and needs help with treatment costs.
On the 20th of September we received the heart breaking news that Mum has stage 4 lung cancer. After a series of tests we have been told that Mum does not qualify for government funded treatment and our only hope now is for Mum to receive the drug Keytruda which is estimated to cost $73,000. She has just started her first treatment however with no income will struggle to meet the ongoing costs involved. Without this treatment Dr's have advised Mum would only have 6 months to live. If this treatment is successful the oncologist has advised people in similar circumstances are walking around cancer free 5 years later. I understand this is an expensive time of year but any contributions would be greatly received. Ordinarily I wouldn't ask for money but we cant manage this on our own and I don't know what I would do without my Mum.
Funds will be used to pay for treatment costs.
