Help Our Dad, Sacha, Through Cancer Recovery

Hey there, many of you know our dad, Sacha Hubert, and for those of you who don’t, let us just sum it up like this; Our dad is the strongest, most generous, most fearless man that has ever lived. He’s a loving father, grandfather, brother and husband, and he’s the most caring father we could have asked for. Unfortunately, our dad has come on some hard times. 
Our dad has gone through a lot these past two years.
Right before the COVID-19 pandemic, our dad started experiencing debilitating pain in both his back and ribs. Before the pandemic, he had to take time off for physiotherapy and various medical appointments. Unable to work as much as he wanted to because of the pain, coupled with the economic slow-down, he ended up getting laid off. And then, the unthinkable happened; our dad was diagnosed with throat cancer, just after his savings and EI benefits ran out. His courier business that he was trying to build, his band and music career as a singer, as well as his ongoing job search for anything that he might have been capable of doing have now all been put on hold due to his recent diagnosis.

He will be going for surgery on December 8th to remove the tumor, and we’re hoping it hasn’t spread anywhere else. Our step mom, his lovely wife, Twyla Hubert, works as an EA, and is doing the best she can to support them both, but without dad’s salary, they are falling behind on all their bills.

We are asking for financial support for Sacha’s recovery until he can get back on his feet. They will need help with bills that they have fallen behind on, their mortgage, medication and living expenses, as well as subsidizing Twyla’s wages as she takes time off to take care of dad. He doesn’t think he will be able to work for at least a year.

Again, for those of you who don’t know—music is a huge part of our dad’s life. The joy he gets from singing, performing, producing, and helping out the musicians of Edmonton, is something anyone can see from a mile away. Our dad and Twyla have been doing all they can for the Edmonton music scene, sometimes even beyond their means. Music has always been dad’s passion.
What hurts us is that the doctors say that he may not be able to sing anymore after the surgery, or at the very least, he won’t sound the same….
Before all of this, what seems like a long time ago now, Dad built a studio to help record musicians as well as his own band. We really want to keep the studio alive and don’t want them to have to sell it off, cause after his recovery, it could be a source of income, while continuing with his passion for music, even if he can’t sing anymore. He really put all his heart into it and we still want him to have it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. All we ask is if you can help us give a little bit back to someone who has given so much.
