How “Heal Mary” Can Help You to Access Clinical Trials

Published by on September 8, 2021 | Share your thoughts

Don’t you just love it when you meet someone who’s work inspires you to your core? That’s how I felt when I had the chance to meet Cassandra Hui. Cassandra is the founder of a clinical trial platform called “Heal Mary”. Her personal story is heartbreaking – AND incredibly inspiring… Why did Cassandra start Heal Mary? When Cassandra’s mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, Cassandra did everything she could to find help. It wasn’t long before she was confronted with the giant gap between what standard care in Canada could offer her mother and what was actually available through clinical trials. This fuelled Cassandra – out of her own need and frustration – to start an organization that could help connect cancer patients...

Why clinical trials for cancer are an excellent way to access leading-edge treatment “Should I participate in a clinical trial for cancer treatment?” I hear this question from most of the patients we work with, at one point or another, during their cancer care.  It’s so essential that you are familiar with clinical trials and how they can help you!

How Lisa Avoided Chemo…and Got the RIGHT Treatment!

Published by on July 28, 2021 | Share your thoughts

And how you may be able to avoid chemo, too… Seven years ago, Lisa’s life changed forever.  She and her husband were living on Vancouver Island in a lovely home they’d built together. They were living their middle-aged years in style… Playing music together, gardening, cooking, and heading out to the local jazz clubs for fun. Lisa worked as an assistant at a law firm – a job she enjoyed. Her office had an excellent work culture, which she appreciated. Life was good. Until Lisa found a lump in her breast, driving home from work one day. “I just got a shooting pain and put my hand there and felt it right away. There was no warning.” The next morning, she went to her doctor. ...

Do You NEED to Spend Money on Cancer Care?

Published by on July 21, 2021 | Share your thoughts

Is it really, truly necessary to spend money on cancer care? Why can’t you get everything you need through public healthcare? And why aren’t the very best diagnostics and cancer treatments covered in Canada? If anything is a hot topic in cancer care, it’s THIS. 💰 And it makes me sad! In an ideal world, no one should need to think about money when it comes to their health… Especially with something as serious and challenging as cancer. It’s honestly really messed up that money plays a role in this. And yet… The lesson that I keep learning about healthcare is: We must deal with the reality of the way things are NOW, first, in order to have a chance at changing them in the...

From Coma to Complete Remission: Kayleigh’s Incredible Story

Published by on June 23, 2021 1 Comment

Is complete remission really possible when you’re stage IV? With precision oncology, yes! “We got a call from my oncologist saying that I had a complete response to my treatment – that was probably the best day of my life.” In April 2021, Kayleigh achieved complete remission from a rare form of blood cancer. But, you should know… Kayleigh and her husband, Cassidy, had been through hell before Kayleigh was able to finally get the treatment she needed. Standard care had taken WAY too long to diagnose her rare form of lymphoma.  The Worst Case Scenario… They were in dire straights: Kayleigh was in a life-threatening coma.  Cassidy was terrified, frantically researching any and all options that could save his wife’s life. He’d quickly realized...
