Amanda McKee is a Registered Nurse who has worked in the mental health field at SAH and planned on becoming a Nurse Practitioner before her health battle began two years ago.
A GoFundMe spokesperson is reaching out on behalf of the fundraising site.
“I wanted to let you know about the McKee family from Sault Ste. Marie – a family who refused to accept a 2015 ovarian cancer diagnosis giving Amanda McKee two years to live.
Instead, the family found a team of doctors at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto that were willing to operate.
Despite a 20 per cent chance of success, the surgeons were able to clear Amanda of any signs of disease.
Unfortunately, two years later Amanda’s cancer has reoccurred, and health complications have put her treatment on hold.
A GoFundMe campaign was started in the hopes of taking some of the financial pressure off of the McKee’s by helping to pay for expenses while they focus on Amanda’s health.
Canadians have shown their support for this family, helping to raise more than $6,900 in just one day.”
The family explains their unbelievably courageous story on the GoFundMe website.
The campaign is now trending and has made it over the $10,000 mark to help a most deserving woman and her family.
