Hello everyone I am here to share my testimony on how Dr Stephen herbal medicine cured me totally from Respiratory Cancer in two weeks. I have been suffering from this disease for long and I keep searching herbal treatments for Respiratory Cancer then I saw a post where Dr Stephen cured someone from Respiratory Cancer, I collected his number and massage him on WhatsApp, I told him everything I was passing through then he told me to relax my mind and be happy that I am at the right place that will change my life forever, Dr Stephen also told me to promise him that once his herbal medicine cured me from Respiratory Cancer in 2 weeks I will share my testimony of his good works on me, I promise him that I will and after few days later i brought some herbal medicine from Dr Stephen he sent it to me and gave me instructions on how to use them for 2 weeks only. I follow his instructions and use the medicines and before the two weeks completed I feel nothing again, now I am totally okay and fine. All thanks to Dr Stephen for bringing joy to me again. If you are suffering from Respiratory Cancer or you need any herbal treatment you can also contact him on stephenherbalhome@gmail.com or contact his WhatsApp through the link below 👇👇 wa.me/+2349157749629 Contact Dr Stephen and I promise you will not regret anything why you know him

Facing 1000km return trips for treatment, unexpected medical expenses, and accommodation costs in Brisbane, Fiona, a 34-year-old primary school teacher from Moree, felt the financial strain of her cancer journey.

With no accrued leave, she worked through treatment. Fiona shares, 'money was my greatest challenge, and that’s where Can Assist Armidale helped me.'

Inspired by their support, Fiona founded the Moree branch, continuing to aid local residents.
