My name is Luis and I currently live in Bogota, Colombia. In September of 2015 my sister Martha, who lives in Calgary, AB, was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer stage IV and it has been progressing since then. The most recent progress note from her oncologist, Cynthia Card M.D. from Holy Cross Centre in Calgary, AB, dated on March 11, 2016, shows that her estimated survival is less than three months. Martha has been living abroad since 1999 and due to this terrible circumstance I’d like to travel to Canada to visit my sister to say goodbye. One of my sisters, Maria, is currently taking care of her so I’d also like to help Maria with anything I can do during thisĀ  emotionally and physically trying time. Once in Canada I’ll will be able to drive them to appointments and to help in any way I can until her illness takes her from us.

I really appreciate your kindness and support to all my family. Unfortunately, at this time, I am unable to cover the transportation expenses. I will be applying for a Canadian visa in the next few days and would appreciate if this request is granted to include it with my visa application.
