GoFundMe Campaign


Thank you for visiting.

Here I would like to help explain the nitty gritty of the reasons behind the GoFundMe Campaign  and the costs that we incur for her ongoing recovery effort on a monthly basis.

Further down in the document I have listed all of the supplements that we need to acquire. These have been copied and pasted from the online websites that we purchase them from and prices tend to vary.  We are always looking out for the best rates where ever we can.

OTC (Over the counter) drugs which include;
Advil (liquid Gels), Gravol, Anti Histamines, FishOil, COENZYME Q10,RESVERATROL
Add up to roughly $49.00 a month.

Cost breakdown of Supplements

Total Monthly Cost: $351.80 
(for us it is roughly  $400.00  a month including OTC above)

We are seeking your help for 
  • Seeking: $200.00 /month
  • One year : $ 2400.00
  • Five years: 12,000.00 : The amount we wish to raise via the Gofundme campaign

Why 5 years.?

Kerri is on a drug called  Teva-Exemestane . Exemestane is used to help prevent the cancer from returning.

Exemestane decreases the amount of estrogen the body makes and helps to slow or reverse the growth of these breast cancers.(source)

This drug has severe side affects such as bone fractures,  mental/mood changes (such as depression, anxiety), vaginal bleeding,   persistent nausea/vomiting, unusual tiredness and yellowing eyes/skin amongst others. We need these supplements to help alleviate these side effects.

For Primary Cancers the usual treatment length is 2-3 Years. 
For local recurrence, locally advanced breast cancer or for secondary breast cancer treatment will usually continue to take it for as long as it is keeping your cancer under control. (source)

Our doctor has advised us to prepare for a minimum of 5 years and in the worst case scenario lifetime.

Please note that while I have provided links to external websites these are not the source for our information. We were advised by our oncologist, family doctor and pharmacist. We supplemented that information by conducting our own online research. The sources provided here are for your connivence if you are interested in finding out more.

How will it work?
The monies raised from the campaign will be deposited in a bank account (TD Bank) created specifically for Kerri's ongoing recovery effort. We will be actively looking for better rates and pricing both online and in-stores.

At any given time if we have an opportunity to buy cheaper we will try and stock up (if shelf life permits). If our efforts to buy at the best deals possibly pays off and we are able to save on our initial estimate and if Kerri does not require the treatment any more, we will donate the surplus to a Charity

Kerri will be blogging and sharing any relevant information, including a running total.

If time permits we will scan and share receipts online.

How is Kerri Feeling ?
Kerri is quite fine and quite upbeat. Other than fatigue she is her normal self and continues to indulge in her passion which is Photography.  She has had numerous Photo Exhibitions and she is the Official Photographer this years Calgary Stampede Show.

We have been sustaining her treatment as outlined here for the past two years and  therefore we know it works.  

However the financial burden on us is finally starting to take a toll. Which is why we are reaching out to family and friends for assistance.

Please feel free to call us (403) 237 6361 or email us at seriously@2create.ca if you require more information or even to say hi.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

List of  Supplements

These supplements have been clinically suggested because of Kerri's ongoing treatment.

We have chosen to go organic, vegetable based supplements because one of the reasons cited for Kerri's cancer was environmental causes. Also they were highly recommended because of higher rate of absorption and being less toxic on the liver.

While they are pricier than most generic options we just dont want to take any chances.
