Nancy's Story

On December 3rd, 2015, Nancy (Berg) Luyckfassel, a long time resident of Fort Saskatchewan and popular educator for Elk Island Public Schools, was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma. She began intense chemotherapy on December 22nd which required her to stay at the Cross Cancer Institute for 5 - 7 days during each of her 6 chemotherapy cycles. So, her and her family celebrated Christmas at the Cross Cancer Institute. Her treatment was difficult, both physically and emotionally, but she always kept a smile and positive attitude about her. Finally, on May 27, 2016 she was told that she was “cancer free” although she will still need to have chemo once a month for the next 12 – 24 months to ensure she stays in remission.

This was a difficult journey, not only for her, but also for her family and loved ones. The Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Cross Cancer Institute were such a help with the emotional support they provided to the entire family. Nurses were always there with smiles on their faces to brighten the days.
