* KINDLY SEE NOTE BELOW WHICH WE JUST ADDED
My name is Ruth and I am writing to ask for help for my daughter, April.
April has been diagnosed with Type 2 Colon Cancer.
The doctor’s prognosis is that she will need an abdominal resection, meaning they will remove part of the colon itself. As well, as the tumor and surrounding lymph nodes, and the walls of the colon, and then re-attach it. There is a chance April may need a colostomy bag for life. April has been for a colonoscopy and biopsy which confirmed she has "moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma”.
We are both, her Father and I, in our 80s and living from a Canada pension plan. So unfortunately we do not have the funds to pay for the surgery.
We are reaching out to you, the public and to friends for help in raising $3500 US dollars. This may seem like very little money to some people, but for us it is an impossibility to raise for us alone.
April is only 57 years old, full of love and always smiling despite how ill or weak she feels.
We love our daughter more than we can say and would do anything to save her life. Any amount may It Be $5 or $50 can all add up and save our little girl's life.
Thank you so much from us, her parents, and on behalf April herself.
Here are the results of the CT Scan:

* PLEASE NOTE THAT$2.050 OF THE DONATIONS SHOWN WERE VERY KINDLY LOANED TO APRIL SO WE HAVE DECIDED THAT AS THIS WILL NEED TO BE PAID BACK AND APRIL KNOWS THERE IS NO PRESSURE TO PAY THIS BACK.
HOWEVER, WITH COVID AND THE ISLAND IN THAILAND SHE LIVES ON BEING SO HIGHLY EFFECTED BY IT AS THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME IS TOURISM, WORK IS GOING TO BE HARD TO COME BY FOR SOME TIME.
THAILAMD IS SLOWLY ALLOWING TOURISTS TO RE-EMTER BUT IT WILL BE OCTOBER UNTIL THEY DROP ALL RESTRICTIONS.
