Supporting Kolbi and Family

43847858_1575418352839724_r.jpeg43847858_1575418411494158_r.jpegIt’s unfathomable that a little boy of 16 months old would have to battle brain cancer. But even more so when it had happened not once, but was struck a second time when he was 4. Little Kolbi bravely fought his cancer on both occasions.

As of January 2019, Kolbi was considered to be cancer-free. Our family could not have been happier... That was until we were blindsided in February, he started to have lower back pain. Knowing Kolbis history with cancer Nick and Jamey knew this was not something they could put off or hope it will subside as you or I could do with our children. They acted quickly and Kolbi went into Children's yet again to have an MRI. They were faced with their worst fear, it was back with a vengeance. We came to found out that he had grown two tumors pressing on his spine which was causing his pain and discomfort. This extremely aggressive form of cancer had grown onto one massive tumor within 2.5 months. We were told there were no curative options.

Horrified, heartbroken, yet determined my brother and his wonderful partner have done, and continue to do everything in their power to help Kolbi homeopathically, they have met with countless natural paths, health and life coaches. Changed everything about Kolbi's diet and lifestyle. Kolbi was taking morphine for pain, and also started a steroid that wreaks havoc on his little body, he gained mass amounts of weight and was almost unrecognizable within just a few months. He wasn't his happy, hilarious funloving self. His emotions were all over the place, he would lose his temper, and if you know him you'd know this was absolutely not typical for this sweet boy we have come to love and adore. He would get upset for no reason and sometimes minutes later could be a ray of sunshine. This was massively hard on him, my brother and all of us. To see what Nick was/is going through, watching his son slip away has been heartwrenching. Nothing in life can prepare you for the tears streaming down your little brother's face as he tirelessly works to save his son. By August Kolbi was doing fantastic and was able to go off steroids and morphine and as well as start grade 1!! Nick picked up shifts again here and there trying to better support his family. Finally, we saw a light at the end of the tunnel!!! We knew this was a battle he still was fighting but he had his energy back! Not only could he once again walk a flight of stairs unassisted but he could play and run and have fun like any other healthy child! He was burning the weight off that he had gained so quickly and was doing better than he was been doing all year! This felt like a HUGE victory!

Fast forward to today, Kolbi has been experiencing excruciating hip pain to the point that morphine and other drugs are barely touching it... In an effort to keep him as comfortable and pain-free as possible, he is back on steroids and morphine. The doses have needed to be upped so much that he is drowsy all day long and seems completely out of it. Once again his little body is being put through the wringer. His bodily functions are not currently working properly... Once again they are faced with reality. These few joyous pain-free months seem to be a thing of the past. We are left with hopes that this is just a hiccup... hopes that tomorrow will be a new day desperately hoping he will wake up pain-free...

Their previous Go Fund Me page made it possible for them to be home with Kolbi and care for him the best way possible, all while building lots of lasting family memories. They were able to take a trip of a lifetime to Disneyworld (complements of Make-a-Wish foundation) They also took a few weeks of the summer to road trip within Canada along with their 3 step-siblings and planned multiple family camping trips with our extended family, making the most of every single moment. Creating life long memories for not only him but also his big sister Gracie and all of us. They wouldn’t have been able to survive the summer without it, without your generous donations. Truly from the bottom of our broken hearts, we could never ever find a way to thank all of you that have contributed over the years. All of the support has been absolutely incredible. But his battle isn't over, they are all hanging by a thread and the last thing we would like for Nick and Jamey to stress about is finances. We all know that struggle I'm sure. During Christmas time and the months following is usually rough for anyone. They are already stressing about how they will make the money to keep up with Kolbis meds, oils, and raw clean food, their SUV needs major repairs, rent, bills, food for the family and so on...The finances are already stacking up and weighing on them heavily... and they haven't even started thinking where the magic of Christmas is coming from this year. Your donations greatly help ease the financial pressure that weights on them daily. Thank you so much for your contributions. They quite literally make a world of difference to this wonderful little family. Thank you so much for taking the time to read about this sweet little boy and our family.
