ROUTE TO BE UPDATED CLOSER TO EVENT DATE

Confident. Compassionate. Overcoming hurdles. These traits define two things: the native symbol of the Bear; as well as the our "Misio", the nickname for our loving father, husband, son and friend. Meet Jerry Romaniuk.

At just 56 years young, Jerry was presented with his fate. He was told he had developed end stage liver disease, specifically non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Confused and upset, the medical team could not piece together a reliable cause, as Jerry lived a straight edge life. But after beating lymphoma with rigorous chemotherapy just three years prior, Jerry was found to be part of the 2% of the population that develops NASH without reasonable cause.

His liver prognosis is grim; Jerry would be lucky to live a year without a lifesaving transplant, the only treatment option offered by Western medicine. However, Jerry was immediately denied his chance at his transplant, because he must be "cancer free" 5 years, no exceptions.

With no real solution but to wait, Jerry turned to alternative medicine. With weekly physiotherapy, lymphatic massage and the expertise of a Western trained oncologist with additional Eastern medical expertise, Jerry started to see real disease improvement.

These results have given Jerry a chance to live a better quality of life prior to his admission to the transplant list in 2021. However, Jerry’s treatment is not covered by OHIP. This life improving treatment will be inaccessible to him within the next few months.

Today, we ask you to join us in defying the fate of our Misio, in the Brave Bear Ride. Graciously organized by our friend Jack Tchakmak, the Brave Bear Ride will raise life changing funds support Jerry in his fight for life.

Register to ride or donate today . Be part of making history through participation in the BBQ and Ride and through your generous donations. Together, we can save our loving Misio, giving him years to continue cracking Dad jokes, helping as often as he can, and loving his friends and family deeply.
