So instead of paying for the treatment Dad is suffering from many side effects from a prolonged dosage of prednisone which has caused him to become a full blown diabetic requiring insulin many times a day. Prior to the prednisone Dad was not required to take insulin. He has very limited quality of life now and spends most of his days feeling terrible sitting in his arm chair.
Further to all this our Father worked hard all his life in PEI, paid his taxes and is a great citizen who deserves great healthcare! Over his many years on PEI, He coached girls soccer and biathlon contributing to the wellness of many young rural PEI kids. He volunteered his time with the Sea Cadets, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and co- founded the Northern Ireland Children's Events that brought kids to PEI every summer to billet with local families. This man served his country in the Royal Navy and has his Canadian Decoration.
But last but not least he saved the life of a man who was drowning in South Rustico and received a life saving award for his efforts. It is now time to save the life of my Dad, Frederick Rodgers (known to many as Ben). Please join our family in fighting for my Dad's right to treatment so he can continue to be a great Canadian Citzen, Grandfather, Father, and Husband. Thank you for any donation you are able to contribute to getting Dad the treatment he needs.
