I am a 65 year old man who has been living in Edmonton for the past 3 years.  Over this time my health has begun to diminish and I have very limited support in way of family of friends who live in this city whom I can rely on.  In addition I was in a car accident which led to me being hospitalized at the University of Alberta Hospital and then at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital for a number of months.  During this time, my very supportive daughter in BC has encouraged me to return home to BC and has even offered to let me stay with her and her family so that they call can offer me the emotional an physical support I need to improve and recover and improve the quality of my life.  Without them I would be living along with no help from friends and family.  I am requesting help with the cost of this flight as I have no funds available to fly.  I can no longer drive due to medical reasons and my current fragile state.  Once in BC my daughter and her husband have offered to support me however finances are a concern to them at this time as well.  This leaves travel to this destination as a real barrier due to the limited finances that are available. Any help in this area would be me with great and sincere appreciations

Thank you for considering me for this program.  I appreciate the great things the program does.
