Help From Friends of Kumar
We are the friends of Kumar.
As many of you may know Kumar has been battling Oral cancer since last September. He returned to work a short time ago with the belief that the difficult treatment was now behind him. Alas, it was not to be. On Wednesday June 10th Kumar heard that the cancer had returned, and the prognosis is such that Kumar has taken the step of seeking treatment alternatives beyond Canada’s borders, in the US and India.
Many of you have been asking if there is anything you can do to assist Kumar and his family. Kumar’s benefits coverage most unfortunately do not cover treatment outside of Canada, and the treatments and surrounding travel are going to mount to many thousands of dollars. We are undertaking this crowd-funding initiative to provide a focused vehicle for assistance to Kumar and his family.
Should you decide that you’d like to participate and extend your best wishes to Kumar and his family in a practical way, we’d invite you to contribute and feel free to invite others you feel may like to join us as well.
