A Message From The Flight Recipient:

I write to you on behalf of my sister IRIS SALOMA BILLOCORA, a Canadian Citizen. She is diagnosed with stage four breast cancer, with Metastasis already in her brain, currently in palliative care and staying with my sister here in Calgary, Alberta. With her current health conditions, she wishes that my two brothers, who are currently working in Saudi Arabia to visit her this coming Christmas to spend time with us since its been many years that she did not meet them personally. We cannot afford to shoulder the plane ticket for their trip, they already have a visa, and my sister is very excited to visit them personally. We would be happy that this Christmas finally we could have a mini-reunion. My sister arrived here in Canada last 2009 as a nanny and never spent a Christmas with them. Our brother is not also financially capable of shouldering the plane ticket since they are not compensated well.

I want to give a smile to my sister this Christmas season by having a short reunion with them. Life is short, and I know generous help from you as a donor will be appreciated very much. My sister is not really earning right now; she receives financial assistance from AISH and her CPP. Unfortunately, the insurance provider denied her claim, which left her disappointed; if she only received her claim, she could have shoulder the expenses for our brother’s airfare. But she is still blessed that her palliative nurse from Alberta Health Services recommended the Give a Mile organization, and giver a glimpse of hope.

I am praying that my sister’s wish will come to fruition. Thank you so much
