Gino Strong Fund
Gino has been diagnosed with a form of Amyloidosis, which is a disease that occurs when substances called amyloid proteins build up in organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein usually produced by cells in the bone marrow that can be deposited in any tissue or organ. Amyloidosis can affect different organs in different people, and there are different types of amyloid. Amyloidosis frequently affects the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract.
Gino was being treated in a Vancouver hospital but has recently traveled back east via medical flight. He is now at a heart institute in Ontario. We are very optimistic about the treatment he is now receiving.
Our family is seeking support to offset expenses. Donations are welcomed.
Nia:wen! Migwech! Merci! Thank you!
Stay Strong Gino

Gino is my Uncle. My mom has been by his side in Vancouver and they asked me to create a fund for the family. This fund is covering the expenses our family is incurring to go and be with him.
If he is to return home it will help with the travel costs to the hospital, which is 2 hours from Maniwaki and over an hour from Akwesasne.
It will also cover any costs for Gino's living expenses, while he is in the hospital.
The money is only being withdrawn with approval from Gino himself or an appointed family member if he is unable to.
Thank you for all you kind thoughts and donations.
