Vancouver Sun

A South Surrey woman said BC Cancer denied her essential support services after she elected to pay privately for chemotherapy in Bellingham. Vicic, who has Stage 3 colon cancer, expects to pay at least US$10,000 for chemotherapy at the North Cascade Cancer Center in Bellingham, Wash. The 60-year-old cashed in some of her retirement savings to fund the treatment because she had lost faith in the BC system to treat her cancer quickly enough. “
