Now Gary is facing the greatest challenge of his life as he’s been recently diagnosed with fourth stage cancer. Gary will need continuous chemotherapy treatment over the coming months. This means regular travel between Fort McMurray and Edmonton with all the related costs. Many of the additional related costs are not covered by any plans. Most of you will understand, this is not an easy process and will bring great financial burdens and stress to him and his family. His doctor has also advised that he use alternative medicines to help deal with the daily, chronic pain and enormous stress. While these medicines are available, costs are not covered by any medical plans. Additionally, to have more comfort and peace, Gary has requested that he travel from Fort McMurray to Nova Scotia where he and Eileen have family and where they had planned to spend a happy retirement. We want to Acknowledge and Honour Gary and Eileen’s great gifts that they’ve given to so many people throughout their lives and we’re inviting all of you to contribute what you can to help them during their time of great need. Together we can bring some measure of comfort and relief during this difficult time. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through this campaign. All the funds will be used to help cover the extraordinary costs that Gary and Eileen, and their family are facing.
For those who cannot afford to contribute know that your words of care and kindness are also much appreciated.
