Support for the Sabourin's

A Father’s Final Wish - Support for the the Sabourin family after the loss of Sean

Sometimes in life you hear about a story that just touches your heart and you just can’t let it go - an Abbotsford family is dealing with a situation that you can’t EVER imagine going through …. a husband and father of 3 little children is told that he has terminal cancer with 6 months to live and now has to face the reality that he won’t be there to watch his kids grow up or spend the rest of his life with his wife, Jamie. 

Sean Sabourin was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer which eventually spread to his lungs and liver. After battling for 17 months ...  on Nov 11th when he passed away and went to be with the Lord. In the process of his journey he touched so many lives, anyone that knew of his will tell you how he gave everything he had to his family, the church and the community. 

Now, his family really needs our support - his wife Jamie and his kids are dealing with the loss of their Father and what life looks like after Sean’s passing. 

Sean had but one final wish for his family …. he wanted a New Kitchen for his wife to be able to cook and take care of their little family after his passing. Such a simple, humble wish and something that I think we as a community can help make happen. We’d love to raise some funds to Complete the Kitchen Project - as well as extra funds to help take care of Jamie and Sean’s little kids, as they go through a tough transition. So, lets do our part to help make this a reality so that this renovation can serve as a reminder of Sean every time they sit down to pray and eat together as a family. 

So, let’s make this happen! For Sean. For Jamie … and for his Kids. 

I know there are many needs out there, but as we are all so very fortunate to have our heath and families with us - we ask you to help support this family in any way that you can manage… it’s easy to think that a small donation won’t make a difference, but it does - every little bit will help this family in their transition to life with out Sean. 

As a community, let’s show some love to this family in a time of need …. as we believe that Sean would be the first one to do the same if he was here to help.  

So - how can you help?
