My only child Ernest was diagnosed with a brain tumour in October 2018. He is now living at Dulcina Hospice and is at the end of life. I flew into Calgary in mid-March and have spent the last month with Ernest at Hospice, visiting every day. This has been a precious and also a very difficult time, and I am thankful that I was able to spend this time with my loving son. As of yesterday, the hospice has been forced to restrict visitation. I have made the difficult decision to say my good-byes and return home. I am hoping that you can help me with my flight home as I have been unable to receive compassionate leave through EI, and have not had any income for over a month. It would be most helpful if I could have a direct flight as I am getting up there in age and I find the long travel days very difficult. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. It is greatly appreciated.
