A Message From The Flight Recipient:

My sister had a mental breakdown. She was in Campbell River, B.C. and is now in Duncan, B.C. in a locked facility.

Our mother died March 4th and my deceased brother’s birthday was March 10th. This is a very hard time of year for her. She is phoning me and she wants me there with her because the last time she had a mental break down a few years ago, I went and helped her come back to herself. The hospital won’t let her out right now. She had throat cancer and has had a hard time recovering from her last breakdown. She now weighs 94 pounds.
Her family wants me there to help her.

I have a little bit of money, but together we cannot afford the cost of the plane ticket which is over $400.

I am a community volunteer and recently was recognized by the Federation of Calgary. I was one of 12 picked for Faces of Community 2019. I also volunteered for Sunrise Community Link for 7 years for events, Christmases, casino fundraisers, and pay it forward. I also have my own Soaps and Suds program every Wednesday which helps the homeless have a shower in Forest Lawn.
