Family of 6 kids lose parents to cancer

We are raising money to help support a family of 6 young kids who have lost both parents to cancer in the past 18 months. Their mother, Yvonne, died in August, the week before school started and their father Wayne, died in early 2012. The oldest son, Keegan aged 24, is going to raise his five younger siblings, ages 5 - 15 years.

Please give whatever you can to help support these kids and show them they are not alone!

Here is a link to an article that ran in the London Free Press about the family and the community rallying around them:
