For those of you who don’t already know, The Great Fundraising Act organized by Janetha raised a whopping $26,432 for Susan!!!

I’ve said it before, but this community is truly amazing in every way possible!!

Susan writes, “I was running on a high all day yesterday watching the bids come through and keeping up on Twitter. My family and I were all texting each other with updates. You didn’t just save me, but you saved my family. The predicted amount for my chemotherapy drugs is $30,000 if I have to do the full 6 months. This covers almost all of it. That means my retired mother doesn’t have to cash in her RRSPs. My Nana doesn’t have to give up her “just in case” nursing home savings. I don’t have to work full-time when my doctors have advised me against it.

It doesn’t end here however. I am still going to work at getting the drug assistance my province owes me. This gives me a cushion while I go through the bureaucratic minefield of getting there. I originally wanted to give the remaining funds to buying items for the kitchen and family room in the oncology ward that I lived in for one month. But maybe this means we could renovate to give them a proper kitchen! I met SO many amazing people fighting cancer in that hospital, they and their visiting families certainly don’t deserve to eat food like this. I will be blogging all the details about where the money goes.”

Susan also appeared on CBC News and on the front page of the Fredericton newspaper!!

Kicking butt and taking numbers. Whooo!

In other exciting news, I’m having quite the week hosting my family during their stay in Ontario! We’ve been on the go all week doing fun activities with my nephews. (Thanks to some major blog pre-planning, I’ve been able to stay OFF the computer! Amen sista.)

I’ll be posting a recap with pictures soon. :)

I’m also here to tell you that it’s never too early in the day for Chocolate Peanut Butter dip.

Or strong coffee, but you knew that already.

We tested this theory after it called our names from the fridge at 8am. You can’t say no to peanut butter and chocolate when the moment presents itself. You just can’t.

Luckily, this isn’t your average sweet fruit dip loaded with sugar. It’s a dip that can be enjoyed at 8am…just because you are a cool Aunt and the kiddies will think they are doing the naughtiest thing in the world!

Just don’t blame me if they request this at home as much as that Dora character I keep seeing all week.

I am so happy with how much money was raised for Susan — and reading about how she wants to use any leftover money to help the ward is so kind of her. This community is amazing!

Amazing job on the fundraising! Congratulations!

That dip looks amazing. It might also be dangerous because I kinda want to eat it with a spoon!

The libertarian in me just has to say something :-) It’s so beautiful to me that communities take care of each other like the blogging community took care of Susan. It doesn’t matter whether it’s physical or virtual communities, we don’t need the government to help us with healthcare costs (or retirement costs or food costs). I’m so happy to see Susan get the money that she needed. We are all on this planet together and we all are connected. Take care of your brothers and sisters. Peace and Love :-)

Sam@I Tell Stories July 29, 2011

I am glad Susan was able to benefit from the generosity and kindness of others. A feel-good story.

I can’t help but think though that all provinces should be providing equivalent care. At least according to the Canada Health Act. I hope that changes are able to be made.

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 29, 2011

I think the interviews she’s received in the media are bringing attention to this important issue! It’s an added bonus, I guess!
