The Lindsay McCreith Story
On January 2, 2006, Lindsay McCreith was suffering seizures. After waiting 7 hours in emergency, a CT scan showed a brain tumor. McCreith was told he’d have to wait 4.5 months for an MRI scan to find out if the tumour was malignant. That’s when he went across the border and got an MRI in Buffalo. The MRI revealed the brain tumor was, indeed, malignant.
Mr. McCreith returned to Canada with the MRI results and was told he’d have to wait 3 months for surgery despite knowing his brain tumour was malignant. He returned to Buffalo and had the surgery that may have saved his life.
