In Memory of Jacob Hillerby

In the early hours of June 16, Jacob Hillerby was airlifted from Penticton to Vancouver with seizures. He spent the next several days at the BC Children's Hospital, fighting bacterial meningitis, before passing away peacefully on June 21, in the arms of his loving parents. It was just one day short of his first birthday. Jake leaves behind his parents, Jacqui and Richard, as well as his twin sister, Robin, of Kincardine, Ontario.

While there is no amount of money that could ever take away this family's pain and suffering, they will be faced with many unforeseen costs, from funeral expenses to time off work, in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. Relieving their financial burden will be a small ray of light during the most horrible time of their lives.

If you have ever met the Hillerbys, you know they are the most generous, giving, caring family you could ever meet. There is no end to what they would give to help out anyone who's in need. Let's show them how much we care and return this family's incredible generosity.

Thank you so much for your support. Please send your love, prayers, and positive thoughts to the Hillerby family during this incredibly difficult time.
