We are 99% of the way to achieving our fundraising goal of $20,000!
A huge thank you to all the fabulous people that made this possible! Your generous contributions have helped support Scott and Manon in being with Cypress during this time and helped provide Cypress with some extra comforts and opportunities. Cypress is doing well and is very energized by all the people on his side. His parents are overwhelmed by all the love and kindness. Thank you so very much!
When we learned Cypress was sick and in the oncology ward of BC Children's Hospital, we realized the best way to help out the family was to try to raise some money. We knew that both parents had to give up jobs and incomes in Victoria to go to Vancouver to be with Cypress full-time. We knew the family didn't have any savings, but were living one paycheque at a time and on scholarships while trying to complete studies and raise kids. And, we knew they have three kids to raise and support! So... we put the word out to friends and family to come together to ease the financial pressure as best we could. We set up a realistic goal of $10,000 which would alleviate some worry. The results are extraordinary.
In just a couple of weeks, we have raised the $10,000 for Cypress's family we hoped to. They are so thankful and overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity!!! The family can now better focus on what's really important - getting Cypress healthy again!
What we didn't know when we first learned Cypress was sick was that his chemotherapy treatment would take place over a period of 25 weeks and that he is likely to have to spend those weeks at or nearby BC Children's Hospital. We are now asking ourselves, 'what would it take in terms of dollars if this happened to us "“ if our child became ill, we had to quit our jobs and had no income for nearly six months!?'
While we want to thank everyone with full hearts for coming together to meet our initial goal, we realize the need is greater than originally anticipated. So we are going to raise our goal. We are going to reach out to a wider community. And, we know we are going to be overwhelmed yet again by the support, concern and love people will provide. Because people know that together we can make a difference!
Our dearest Cypress is at the Children's hospital in Vancouver. He has been diagnosed with cancer in his kidney. Cypress will be staying at the hospital for the next months. His family needs to be there with him. His momma, Manon, has had to quit her job, so she can be by his side during the long road of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. His daddy, Scott, is a student completing his masters degree. They don't have much money and will have lots of additional expenses over the next while living in Vancouver. We are praying hard for them and want the family to be able to focus on helping Cypress and loving him rather than stressing about money. Please help by offering a donation.
We are so glad that you are doing better! Last Free Workshop we raised some money to help with expenses.
Anytime that you would like to drum, just let us know!
Jordan, Sam & all of the HDR students
