The father of my 3 children , has been fighting what we thought was a terrible chest infection... since May 2017 Doctors treated him so many times with antibiotics & it just wouldn’t clear up or get better .
This is the guy who my children think hung the moon & placed all the stars above , this is a guy who would go above and beyond for anyone in his circle of life .
jean-marc was born May 27,1966 ... since he was knee high to a grasshopper he was always on the move , always willing to try something new , & always so happy and on the go , constantly providing helping hands to those in need & never asking for anything in return ...
Jean-Marc loved working out , listening to music , chilling with friends and most of all his children . You would see many times how engaged he was with his family and provided them with love and support in everything they did , even tho it was not usually a good idea , he would often let the kids get away with things ...
His job working on the rail-way took him away from his home life a lot of the time , he started working for Great Plain Rail out of winnipeg when he was 27 years old, Jean Marc moved to Alberta to further his career with the railway and holds a foreman position with A & B rail for the past 14 + years...
His children Clayton now 21 graduated in 2013 , His daughters Amber 20 , graduated in 2014 & his youngest daughter Tessany graduated in 2017 ... his pride and joys of life .
Ok so now here’s where it gets tough ... as I was saying we thought he was battling a chest infection since May 2017 , after numerous doctors visits and a biopsy we were just recently told on December 22 ,2017 that he has stage 3 larnyx cancer ! The worse news I could ever imagine just before Christmas !
We are now in the process of making arrangements for accomidations to stay in Edmonton for 6 weeks , he will be to weak during chemo and radiation treatment .
We don’t ask for much but right now I’m asking for any help ,trying to make ends meet , I’m literally at my end ... any donations are and will be greatly appreciated ‘
Thanks for reading our story ...
