Support Tamil dad fighting cancer!

Support_Tamil_Dad

On Ash Wednesday of last year (March 5, 2014) our dad, Anthonimuthu Kingsley M., thought he was having a heart attack and called 911. However, hours later we found out that it was not a heart attack, but in fact was a large tumour that had burst, which was operated by Dr. R. Nam at Sunnybrook Hospital. From this day forward our lives have been a rollercoaster with many ups and downs.

My dad is diagnosed with Adrenocortical carcinoma, a rare aggressive cancer (1-2 cases per million) from the adrenal gland. He has had two different kinds of chemotherapy that was not working. Currently he is under the care of Dr. A. Joshua at Princess Margaret Hospital. There is one last option of treating him with a drug called Sutent orally, but we need financial support for this treatment as there is no coverage for this drug. This is our last resort and we are very hopeful.

In this journey of fighting against cancer we (his wife, three daughters, and two grandchildren) continue to stay positive. We are seeking out your kindness and generosity during this difficult time. Every single dollar will help aid in his road to recovery. God bless you.
