Christmas Miracle

$4,790 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 82 people in 3 months
In April 2009, I lost a huge part of my heart and my life with the abduction, rape, and brutal murder of my eight year old little girl, Victoria. I have tried to stand tall and proud for who she was and try to make a difference in her name. Meanwhile not paying attention to life moving forward daily. Stuck in that moment.
In 2009 and 2010 I completed two seperate bike rides in memory of Tori and raised a total of over $100,000 for child find. (Second ride included Victoria's older brother). This to help financially aide in their search of locating missing children, and aide in child abduction provention. Since that time we have endured two murder trials and suffered extreme heartache and pain. I was denied criminal injuries financial compensation yet financially life continued to move forward. With the aide of counsellors, family, friends, and medications.,, I felt as though I was headed in the right direction.
A memorial motorcycle ride in Woodstock over five years with the aide of our community helped benefit Canadian Mental Health financially and Ingamo Homes with supplies for children.
I was now paying support for my 19yr old son in college, and being a father to my seven year old boy. ( without the financial support of his mother).
Then...
My life took a financial plummit that I have been unable to recover from. Starting in April 2017 things started falling apart. Having multiple car issues and working out of town had been putting me through constant worry. Not only about getting to work but getting there safely. Borrowing money from family and friends constantly , always being behind and getting worse. In turn, depression had been getting worse. Now towards the end of July my Medications were no longer doing their job. Feeling dizzy at work and not sleeping among other things. I asked my doctor to increase my anti-depressants to help aide my mind through the slump I was now going through. Having started the new medication I have been attempting to make a switch in dr's as I felt I wanted to go in a different direction since the new medications were only making things worse. No ambition to do anything. A little over a month later I was unable to afford the car maintenance and was forced to scrap not one, but two different cars. Still dizzy from meds, no transportation to work, and sixtyfive kilometres away, a little over a month from Christmas, and I have lost that employment and been denied unemployment. I have fallen into exteme hardship financially.
It's really hard to hold your head high with a smile and show everyone you're doing ok after such trauma but the underlying issues are putting a huge damper on staying focused.
I ask for your help as I am now praying for a Christmas Miracle. I know that everyone goes through hard and tough times but sometimes some need that additional support.
Merry Christmas to Everyone, and God bless
