Your Monthly Gift May Help Six-Year-Old Drea

Your gift gives hope to Mandy & Mike. Hope for a cure one day for Drea’s complex cancer.

Our names are Mike and Mandy and our six-year-old daughter Drea has brain cancer.

In the months since her life-altering diagnosis, we have come to appreciate how the generosity of donors like you is giving Drea and our family of five more time together. Our fear for her well-being never leaves our minds, but because of the selflessness of donors like you, we have hope.

We now understand how donors kind-hearted support has helped bring the best doctors to CancerCare Manitoba to care for her. However, we need you to continue giving because it’s highly likely Drea’s cancer may come back.

We hope Drea's story inspires you to rally behind her by becoming a monthly donor as all funds donated support research. Research which will hopefully lead to a cure one day for Drea. 

Thanks to the support of donors like you, our days are getting a little brighter. We are starting to get longer stints of our “old” Drea. But we’re not sure she will ever be the Drea she was before her cancer.

Looking ahead is not easy. It’s plagued with unknowns.

As her mom, I feel helpless.

I’d like to go to bed not being terrified she’s going to relapse. If Drea’s cancer does come back, I need to know there will be more knowledge and answers to cure her. For this to happen, we need your help. Your gift may be the difference CancerCare Manitoba’s researchers need to better understand and treat Drea’s unique cancer.

As a dad, I want to protect my family.

I worry terribly what the future holds for her. If you ask me about the long-term, I can’t tell you I think about university or her getting married. 

Your support and compassion are a bright light for our family.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring and giving. There are truly no words to express the gratitude we feel for you.

Mike & Mandy
