Please help to cover some of the financial costs of an experimental cancer treatment being incurred by our friend, Glen Thompson. A small act of charity from you becomes an enormous gift of time to a young family battling with cancer. And, for Glen and his family, success is measured in time to watch his daughter grow and to help his young family cope with the fallout of this disease. Your contribution literally buys hope and time by making these experimental treatments possible for Glen.

In February 2014, Glen received the deflating diagnosis that the cancer, an ocular melanoma, he successfully defeated as a teenager has returned. It is aggressive and already at stage 4.

Currently, there is no cure. Today, there is no treatment program in Canada with any reasonable probability for success. Yet, there may be a temporary respite from this disease. An experimental drug treatment program currently underway in the United States shows encouraging results. It is not yet available in Canada, and it is not covered by Canadian health insurance, but it appears, thankfully, to be slowing the growth of Glen's cancer. We are optimistic that it will buy Glen time.

Thank you for your support.
