Calgary, AB - In a poignant moment within a clinic waiting room, Amanda Omelchuk's life took an unexpected turn. While anxiously awaiting her 14-year-old son's ultrasound for his enlarged lymph nodes, she noticed a banner about a gastric balloon program. This seemingly ordinary moment would unravel into a remarkable sequence of events, reshaping her outlook on healthcare and gratitude.


For nearly a year, Amanda had been a steadfast companion to her son during his appointments, each visit filled with apprehension and uncertainty. However, on this particular day, her son insisted on going in alone, granting Amanda a rare moment to explore the intriguing Allurion Gastric Balloon Program.


Scanning a QR code for more information, Amanda's curiosity led her to connect with Dusty James from Rapid Access Medical, the pioneering company behind the gastric balloon in Canada. Excited by the program's potential, Amanda embarked on the process to determine if her insurance would cover the procedure.


Amidst a glimmer of hope, a phone call from their family doctor shattered their world. The lymph nodes were growing, and a biopsy was imperative to rule out Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The wait for the biopsy appointment was excruciating, engulfed in fear and uncertainty.


During this challenging time, Amanda was contacted by Rapid Access Medical, and the gastric balloon program to proceed with her procedure. Despite her eagerness, she shifted the focus to her son's health. Dr. Lukubisa, recognizing the potential severity of her son's condition, worked tirelessly to ensure her son would get the necessary scan in a timely fashion. His proactive approach and dedication were instrumental in expediting the care her son needed. To her astonishment, within 24 hours, Dr. Lukubisa of Rapid Access Medical, had her son in his clinic, conducting a comprehensive workup and expediting vital tests at the Children's Hospital.


Amanda decided to proceed with the balloon program. As she prepares for her procedure on February 21st, Amanda is enthusiastic to share her story and extend her gratitude to Dr. Lukubisa and his team.


"My son will undergo his biopsy at the Children’s Hospital, thanks to Dr. Lukubisa's intervention. His genuine care and concern during such a trying time have been a guiding light for us," says Amanda.


Believing that her journey could offer solace to others in Calgary contemplating the balloon program, Amanda aims to underscore Dr. Lukubisa's exceptional care and the transformative impact of the balloon program.
