Empey Family Support


Thank you everyone for your generous donations so far. We are devastated to say that Dale is no longer with us, however we are thankful that he is not suffering anymore. He fought so hard for his girls, and it was so hard for his family to watch. We miss him terribly but we know that he is now running free in heaven. He was the greatest blessing our family has ever been given and he will never ever be forgotten by us.

The money raised from this campaign will help to cover the overwhelming cost of funeral expenses and lessen the financial burden at this difficult time.

Thank you all so much for so many prayers and support, it all means the world to us. ❤️

Andrea, Faith & Leah Empey
(Dale’s Girls)


On October 9, 2015 this lovely family’s life fell apart.  At the young age of 33, Dale (an amazing husband and father to two very precious little girls) was diagnosed with a very large cancerous brain tumour.  He endured a five hour brain surgery and chemo and radiation treatments.  Thankfully, everything went miraculously well and he had an amazing recovery.  His follow up MRI came back cancer free - praise God.

Unfortunately, in April of this year, Dale’s tumour was back, although very small.  They decided to approach this diagnosis holistically, however the tumour kept slowly progressing.

In early September 2017, Dale began showing some serious, unusual symptoms.  On September 22, MRI results showed a very large, inoperable tumour, deep inside his brain. 

Now at the age of 35,  this amazing man is in his second battle with  brain cancer. Things are progressing very rapidly and he is currently in the hospital fighting for his life. 

This fund has been created by Andrea and Dale’s neighbors. There are so very many people who love and support this amazing family, and everyone has been been asking for a go fund me page to be set up so they can show their love and support in a tangible way.  We sincerely apologize for any miscommunication that resulted from us using Andrea’s phone to set it up originally.  

Funds raised will be used to help cover all the extra medical expenses they are incurring that aren’t covered by insurance. 

Please keep this amazing and beautiful family in your prayers.
