Three weeks ago, my Mother passed away from brain cancer. I was out to Kamloops to visit her in May and June, and then needed to return in July for her funeral. The day before her funeral, my Father had been rushed to the hospital with a sub dermal hematoma. Before I had come back to Manitoba, he seemed to be doing well. On Sunday, 22 July, he had another sub dermal hematoma with the possibility of a stroke. My sister was told to call the family back to Kamloops. I don’t have the financial means to get back out to BC as I am on disability (four fractured vertebrae and severe osteoporosis) and have just made two trips in the last few months. Being the youngest, I am very close to my dad and I feel that I am letting him down for not being there for him. I heard about your program from my nephew Terry, who volunteers at the Hospice and I hope you will consider my application so I can be with my Dad and family as we go through this overwhelming ordeal so soon after my Mother’s death.
