Go Fund Me page started for funding to help critically ill Rimbey woman

Go Fund Me page started for Patricia Jones who needs immediate medical treatment in Mexico

 

Another Rimbey family has been touched by the unseen hand of a grave illness that is causing them great stress, coupled by a huge financial burden.

Patricia Jones, who has suffered with breast cancer that spread to her lungs, bones and her skin, has now been diagnosed with multiple metastatic tumors in her brain.

The medical system in Canada is not offering any more treatments except radiation.

The family has found a clinic in Mexico offering an alternate cancer treatment that may help save her life.

The cost to attend this clinic is $53,000 and that does not include airfare.

To help surpass this incredible financial barrier, Patricia’s daughter, Carley Jones has started a ‘go fund me’ page.

Reaching out to others for help is not something her parents would do unless desperate measures were needed, said Jones.

“My mom is the most caring, kind, and genuine person I have ever met. She has helped so many people from family to random strangers,” said Carly. “She puts everyone before herself and never asks for anything in return. My dad, Darren, has not been working due to a slow down in the oil industry.

Normally, Patricia and Darren would not ask for charitable donations. They are usually the first people to donate,” added Carly.

Darren Jones said the outpouring of help that has come in already humbles him.

“The oil patch has been my main income for the last 30 years and lately it’s been very slow. Carving has kept the bills paid. But like most (people) in Alberta it’s a tough go.”

The family is hoping to raise as much money within the next two weeks as possible so Patricia can begin treatment.

“Please join Patricia’s Platoon and help us kick this cancer for good,” said Carly.

There is also an account set up in Patricia Jones’s name at the Rimbey branch of the Servus Credit Union.
