Leah Wiebe continues to fight a battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
This week the father of Leah Wiebe, Mike Rosenau contacted the BC Ministry of Health.
On Thursday, July 13th the Ministry assembled an emergency committee to review Leah’s case and at 1 PM in afternoon they issued their approval to provide funding for out-of-country medical expenses for Leah while she is participating in the CAR-T therapy trial in Seattle.
Rosenau says it was unexpected to see the support from the province.
The fight isn’t over yet however, Rosenau adds it’s still a lengthy process and continues to ask for support from the community.
Even though it’s going to be a long battle ahead of the Wiebe and Rosenau’s family, Mike said when he told Leah the approval, he could see the weight come off Leah’s shoulders.
