Filipino sisters reunite after nearly a decade apart

Manila to Calgary (150,156 Aeroplan points)

Sometimes when it is no longer possible for a patient to go home, they need ‘home’ to come to them.  Such is the case for Calgary hospice patient Rebecca.  Her hospice team reached out to Give A Mile to ask for help to bring Rebecca’s sister, Priscilla from the Philippines to Canada to comfort her in her final days.  The sisters hadn’t been together in person for almost a decade but have been closer than ever since their parents died. Rebecca’s medical team felt strongly that bringing Priscilla to Rebecca’s bedside would be exactly what she needed.  

Give A Mile’s donors and volunteers approved this flight so the sisters could be together for a final goodbye.
