Hello, my name is Karley, a 25 year old Vancouver islander. I am currently employed as a Barista in Nanaimo B.C. With the Give A Mile program I wish to go visit my great auntie Shaney who is in hospice in Calgary. This amazing woman has been like a grandma to me since I was a young child. She has this incredible sense of humor that not everyone gets, but I can see past her “tough guy act” to the kind and caring person she really is. She took such great care of my mom, brother, and I when my grandmother (her sister) died 10 years ago, doing everything in her busy life to take care of us. A generosity I will never forget about.
I feel this visit will bring great closure for both her and I and an opportunity to give back a fraction of the care she has given to me throughout my life. Also, a scene of joy being as our family is scattered across the country and not many have made the journey.
She is the last of her generation in our family it makes me unsettled to think that no one is there with her in her last days. Any kind of support would mean the world to her right now.
