Support for Frank Koughan

Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud ~ Maya Angelou

Thank you friends for taking the time to read about Frank Koughan and his ongoing battle with melanoma cancer.
Frank’s battle began in August 2013 when a spot was discovered on his head.  By July 2014 the cancer had moved to his lungs.  Frank has undergone a series of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  He has suffered many side effects and was recently hospitalized to help overcome some of them.

Frank and his wife, Anne Dow, have two boys, Christopher and Alex who attend Spring Park Elementary School and are very active in minor hockey, ball and golf.  One of Frank’s challenges with this illness is not being able to attend the boys’ games and practices, something he truly enjoys and never wants to miss.
Frank is a family man who has a philosophy of honesty and hard work and a desire to help others.  His strong values are evident on a daily basis in his interactions with family and others around him.  Frank is the kind of person who drops what he is doing to help others with whatever they need.  He does this without thought in his personal life and work.  He works at Markan and takes pride in making beautiful custom countertops.  In his free time, you will find him and Anne cheering on their boys at their hockey and baseball games.

Frank is a great person who has helped a lot of people over the years.  Now it’s our turn to show Frank and his family how much we care by contributing whatever we can to help with the financial and emotional costs of this terrible illness.    

We, the families of Frank and Anne, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
