In Support of the Bonchek Family

Lindsey Bonchek was a young, single mother of three amazing children. Tragically, she died this morning in a house fire, along with her daughter, Madeline (9) and son, Jackson (4).

Lindsey will be terribly missed by her family; remembered as a devoted mother who did what she could with what she had for her children. Madeline was a bright star and mathlete, who adored her youngest brother, Jack

Amidst this tragedy, Lindsey leaves behind her teenage son, Ben, who has been identified as having special needs. Ben has been left alone, with only the shirt on his back, and will require some form of care for the rest of his life.

We ask that you please consider making a small donation to help cover funeral costs, as Lindsey and her children were reliant on social assistance.  

Any funds remaining will be provided to Ben and his caretakers to help rebuild his life and provide necessary supports for his wellbeing.

Thank you for your thoughts & prayers at this very sad time.
