Ruby and the Rota Family Fund

On October 7th, 2015 Wes and Heather Rota received devastating news. Their oldest child Ruby was diagnosed with a brain tumour.  She was taken by air ambulance to BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver for additional testing where it was confirmed that the tumour is located on Ruby's brain stem.
Ruby is a caring,  sweet, creative 5 1/2 year old girl who recently started french immersion kindergarten at Glenmore Elementary.  She enjoys doing crafts ,riding her scooter, playing with friends and spending time with family - especially her 3 year old sister Poppy and her 1 year old brother Smith.
Needless to say this upcoming time will be extremely difficult for the Rota family.  Not only will Ruby be in the hospital battling through the treatments but there will be numerous trips back-and-forth to Vancouver, a house needing to be sold, packed up and moved, all while ensuring that Poppy and Smith are well taken care of.
The GoFundMe account has been created to assist with the emotional stress and financial pressure that these next months will bring. Thank-you for continuing to keep Ruby and the Rota family in your thoughts and prayers.
