Shower Sydney With Love

100% of funds raised go directly into this project to help Sydney.

Aldergrove family Ken and Corinna Wiebe urgently need our help in their struggle to support their daughter Sydney as she navigates the advanced stages of spinal cancer.

On October 6, LifeApp was approached by Langley residents Donna and Derrick Smith who shared this family’s desperate need for home repairs and accessibility modifications in order to provide palliative care for Sydney.

Diagnosed at age 15, Sydney has been fighting an inoperable form of clival chordoma for 10 years. At 21, she married Cam, her childhood sweetheart. At 22 she broke her neck as a result of the damage done by the tumour. After numerous surgeries, proton/photon radiation and experimental immunotherapy treatments, Sydney has defied the odds of her cancer prognosis and has been able to live with a reasonable degree of independence—until now.

This year, with the increased need for palliative care, Sydney and her husband Cam moved into the unfinished basement of her parents Aldergrove home. Corinna, Sydney’s mom, also gave up a well paying job, in order to provide the extended care needed as Sydney’s cancer progresses.

For 10 years the family have poured themselves and their limited financial resources into this battle, leaving less urgent needs unattended. As a result the house is in a state of disrepair, from leaking plumbing to unfinished floors. It is also ill-equipped to support wheelchair accessibility or a private living area for this young couple.

The home repairs and modifications required, combined with the loss of Corinna’s income, have created an insurmountable crisis for this family.

This is where we as a community can help. LifeApp exists to empower people to live love well. Live Love Well Projects facilitate an opportunity for “we” as a community to shower love on one particular family who’s need is greater than their own ability or resources can solve.

The project runs November 8 thru December 13, 2021.

We are actively seeking donations and community support to Shower Sydney With Love .

100% of funds raised go directly toward this Live Love Well project.
