Help Negar fight cancer

Our friend Negar was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer that has spread to her bones, lungs, liver, and brain. She has lost her ability to walk and a part of her vision. So far doctors have conducted several tests and scans including full-body MRI, brain scans, spine CT scan, a bone biopsy, and other tests to confirm the extent of the spread of cancer. The doctors are conducting more tests to decide the course of treatment for her. So far they have mentioned brain and lung surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

The tough part is, because of COVID19 her family can't travel to Canada and be with her while she is dealing with all this. She is an international student at Seneca College with big dreams. Instead, she has to fight cancer and survive first. The last thing she should be worried about is, her finances and the ability to pay the hospital bills. Unfortunately, the private medical insurance offered to the international students only covers a small portion of her medical bills.

For now, we have set the goal for $50,000, but most likely the cost will be way more than that. We will have to increase the goal when the treatment advances. We will keep you updated on Negar and her progress.

If you could please take the time to donate what you can to help support Negar on her journey. Even if it is a small amount, it will go a long way. Whether you do or don't donate, please share her story and this page with your network (on your social media, e-mail, a call, or text).

If you can think of any other ways you can help, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you to all of you who will be donating. We can't thank you enough.
