Linda's Battle with Cancer

Early this March Linda was sent to the Grande Prairie hospital thinking she was going to get a simple consultation for a basic procedure. Later that day  she was admitted as a patient and was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer.  With everything happening so unexpectedly Linda and Calvin had no time to prepare, call work, or arrange any help; and are now left with some serous financial woes. 

Linda has always been one to help whoever needs anything.  If she has the means, she will do everything she can to help you. She is a loving mother to six and an amazing grandmother to three more. Its time we help her too. Linda and Calvin have just learned that she needs to spend the next month and a half in Edmonton. With the hospital being unable to help, they will have to find and rent their own housing and pay for all travel expenses.  

Linda is unable to work, she is not a person of great means and can simply not afford the expenses of getting the treatment she so desperately needs. 

Our goal is to raise enough money for her to rent housing, fuel and have enough extra for any unexpected expenses.

Even the smallest donation will mean the world to her.

*Calvin and Linda would personally like to thank everyone for all the love and prayers.*

UPDATE - Mar 20:
Wednesday March 21st  Linda will be leaving the Grand Prairie hospital and traveling to Edmonton where treatment will begin. She will be away from her home and family for over a month.
Thank you everyone for your amazing support so far. Linda and her family are extremely grateful.

UPDATE - Mar 21:
