A Milton mother of two is losing hope that the drug she needs to prolong her life will be covered by OHIP.
41-year-old Kimm Fletcher has been diagnosed with stage four brain cancer and has only been given two months to live.
She met with Health Minister Deb Matthews for 20 minutes Wednesday to ask what can be done, but not much has changed.
Matthews says it would be illegal for her to intervene on this matter. She maintains all she can do is talk to the committee which determines which drugs OHIP covers to make she it's reviewed all the latest research on Avastin.
Six months of Avastin treatment costs $48,000. Matthews says while OHIP covers Avastin for colorectal cancer patients, past research has shown it won't help brain cancer patients in the same way.
Fletcher was hopeful when she first came to Queen's Park in the morning but told she wanted better news.
She says she can't give up and will continue with her push as she continues to fundraise in her community to pay for treatment.
