If this treatment prevents the boys blindness, surely the combined people of Canada can come up with $5k twice a year. An account of some kind to compile donations may be all that is needed to quarantee treatments proceed while the bureaucrates find a way to do the right thing. It's difficult to believe, though, that the Reids were correctly informed by medical advisors that Canada doesn't have the best surgeons in the world.

How much is the surgery? Is it then $5,000 twice a year for follow-ups?

Just wondering what total cost is, which I am sure is nothing compared to what the Government wastes everyday!
