The Friends of Hal Campaign

Having just turned 86, Hal, now in his 10th year post cerebral hemorrhage, has been with left with left sided paralysis.

He lives at True Davidson Acres, a long term care home close to the Danforth.

Luckily , with the continued support of the rugby community he has been able to have a room of his own that overlooks Earl Bales Park.  His needs are simple. He enjoys getting his daily National Post. Reading is probably his only stimulation as many of the residents are not as cognitively aware as he is.

Last year he received $21,461 for his care but his expenses were $31,468. His True Davidson care is $ 2,516 each month. The " Friends of Hal " fund covers this extra needed for a single room, his newspaper, phone, tv and medical needs eg.Dental and foot care plus any mobility needs.

Unfortunately, these necessities are not covered by his Old Age Security or CPP.

As Hal has no family visiting him, his rugby pals are his only family , so thank you all for your continued support without which Hal's life would be in a sad state.
