There is lots of time left in 2013 to PAY IT FORWARD but isn't TODAY a great day to start with a random act of kindness for someone who really needs it? Sure, it's nice ...
Pay it Forward in 2013 - Please Help Geena fight Cancer

Please join us as we seek to help our friend Geena so that she can purchase the Thyrogen she needs in order to proceed with radiation treatment for cancer. We are asking for you to please give $5 or even a toonie, if that is what you can manage. Please share Geena's story and ask YOUR friends to give what they can.

There is lots of time left in 2013 to PAY IT FORWARD but isn't TODAY a great day to start with a random act of kindness for someone who really needs it? Sure, it's nice to pay for the Timmy's for the person behind you at the drive thru but for that same bit of pocket change won't it feel great to help someone fight for her LIFE?!

WHY ...

Geena is battling thyroid cancer. She had her thyroid removed in early 2012 and is now on medication which allows her to function. In order to receive ongoing treatment for cancer she must have two injections of thyrogen in order that she can continue taking her essential, life-prolonging thyroid medication as well as radiation treatment targetting the cancer in her body. Geena can ONLY proceed with radiation while on her thyroid medication if she has two injections of THYROGEN which is covered in BC, PEI Newfoundland and Quebec but NOT in Ontario.

Geena is a dear friend and a kind soul who has dedicated her life to helping others. She gives back in her community, shares her income with her family and currently works caring for the elderly. She is tenacious, strong and very independent. She is always positive and is prepared to fight cancer every step of the way. This is a girl who was determined to tackle downhill skiing for the first time in her life right after having thyroid surgery! And she did it!

DOING OUR PART ...

Geena was humbled and honoured when we, her friends, asked her permission to set-up this campaign on her behalf. Through tears of gratitude at realizing that others really DO care, she graciously accepted our offer. We do so not because she asked but from our hearts and our desire to provide you and others with the same opportunity we have to support a most deserving individual. We felt compelled to organize this effort and pick-up where our provincial government has left off. It was astonishing to us to learn that the life-saving medication she requires as part of her treatment plan are not covered through the province under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). It is distressing enough having to deal with a serious illness, but then finding out that the safety net that we ALL believe will be there for us when needed isn't there, only brings added stress & pressure. Neither of which is conducive to healing.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE USED FOR GEENA'S INJECTIONS AND RELATED EXPENSES FOR HER TREATMENT.

Thank you for PAYING IT FORWARD and SHARING Geena's story with your friends! Wishing you Good Health and Great Karma in 2013 and for many years to come!
