An eight-year-old Melfort girl is heading into the next chapter in the fight for her life.
Lenaya Veinot, a student at Maude Burke School, is battling an autoimmune disease and taking a new treatment for it.
Her mother Leanne said a variety of therapies has been tried over the past few years, but her body is not responding to the medication.
The new treatment is in the experimental stages in Canada, but used in Europe as an anti-rejection medication.
“It is a chemotherapy(like) treatment, it hasn’t been used in treating her disease in Canada. It has been used in Europe. It is more a therapy used for anti-rejection medications like a new liver and things like that,” Leanne said.
