Help the Merrick family

The most amazing and loving family that you would ever meet, are  unfortuantely going through a difficult situation and even though you would never know  because they remain to have an amazing, positive, loving attitudes and their giving nature.
         
        Currently Caelan is undergoing Chemo to treat Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stage 2b. Caelan has been a trooper and an amazing sport through his diagnosis and treatment! He really has shown an unbelievable strength and remains to be such an amazing character through it all! It breaks your heart to see such a great kid fighting through such an obstacle. No one deserves to go through this, especially at 15 years old.  No parent should ever have to witness their child having cancer or having to go through such an aggressive form of treatment.

        With everything going on in the Merrick family’s life right now, we are trying to help give them one less thing to worry about or atleast something to worry about less.
 
       With  all the extra costs like taking  Caelan for treatments and having to remain in Ottawa with him, the extra medical costs for equipment and the loss of income because unfortuantely Debra had to put her business on hold. We are hoping to raise some funds so the Merricks can put it towards all of this and hopefully more, to help soften some of the financial burdens. 

     If you can donate anything it will be a huge help! This family deserves the support and would never ask for this themselves.

     Debra is heavily involved with the Parent council at Mackenzie Community school in Deep River, ON and  she also raises money for the CANDU swim program. She is truly a jewel when it comes to the daycare that she runs that I couldn’t put into words  the amazing job and commitment she has. 

          Caelan is very involved in the 17/18  MCS Techies at Mackenzie, he is a great brother and an amazing son.  He has been a good mentor for our small children and one of the most polite, caring and kind teenagers I have ever met. We adore his sense of humour which remains despite going through such a fight.

Please help the Merricks!
