Rhonda Morey walks on the beach with her family at their camp on Sunny Cove Island, Nfld.  Mrs. Morey is unable to spend much time outside in the cold and must avoid overexerting herself due to a mix of her cancer symptoms and side-effects of her treatments and medications. The 33-year-old mother of two, who has Stage 4 ovarian cancer, has been forced to charge $10,000 on her credit card, paying not only for transportation, lodging and other ancillary expenses traveling to St. John's, where she underwent surgery and chemotherapy, and also for anti-nausea and pain medication.
