My 27 year old daughter, ​Rose has been tube feeding since 2009. She is on a permanent disability and our provincial government covers the cost of her formula and supplies, but unfortunately all of the formulas available through the program commercial formulas and the main ingredients in all of them are GMO maltodextrin and GMO high fructose corn syrup! The rest of the ingredients are refined and/or synthetic.

Rose used those formulas until about a year ago when through my research I found a whole food, organic formula called, Liquid Hope, made in the US by a company called functional formularies.

​Of course we wanted to get Rose going on this formula immediately, but tube feeding formulas are very expensive. The one she was using costs about $1000 a month, and is covered by the provincial government, whereas this amazing whole food formula is not. Liquid Hope costs approximately $1500 a month, including shipping.  That is why I launched our previous campaign to raise money to get her started on Liquid Hope as soon as we possibly could. 

Rose started on Liquid Hope in December 2014 and her health immediately began to improve.  Her blood test results improved, she slowly started to gain weight and she began to have normal bowel movements for the first time in years.  

We used up all the fundraised money quite a few months back now and have barely been able to keep buying Liquid Hope.  During this time I have been working on having Liquid Hope approved as a formula covered by Rose's disability and I have finally made a bit of progress, but it is very slow going. 

Below is a comparison of the formula the government will pay for that Rose was using and Liquid Hope. After looking at the difference in the ingredients of both, I think it will be pretty obvious why she NEEDS to switch permanently to Liquid Hope. Please help if you can!

​Filtered water, organic garbanzo beans, organic green peas, organic carrots, organic whole grain brown rice, organic whole grain rice protein, organic flax oil, organic sprouted quinoa, organic sweet potato, organic broccoli, organic almond butter, organic kale, organic garlic, organic turmeric, organic rosemary, organic ginger, organic wakame (seaweed), vitamin blend and mineral blend (all natural for high absorption)
