A Message From The Flight Recipient:

I would be so grateful for the opportunity to go home to Calgary from where I am in Vancouver in order to see my grandma who is currently in palliative care with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. My grandma has always been my greatest supporter and cheerleader, encouraging me more than anyone to chase my dreams. I remember learning the chicken dance in her living room, then she supported me through years and years of dancing, and gave me the confidence to move to a new city to follow my dream of being a dancer. Her love has been unwavering and our bond has always been so important to me. She likely has less than a month to live at this point and she’s too weak to even talk on the phone. For this reason, I want to go home and sit with her, hold her hand, and make sure she knows how much she means to me.
