A Message From The Flight Recipient:
My name is Marites, they call me Tess for short. I arrived in Canada in 2010, full of hope and inspiration just because of my family back home because I have only a single parent which is my mother who raises and support us because my father was died at young age with bone cancer. Life at first here is not easy, I came here as a foreign worker and struggled a lot and cheated with my employer but still thru faith with God I never lost hope until I found a good employer and helped me to get my residency. Early year 2015 while I’m applying my residency I was diagnosed with invasive carcinoma, life is so difficult and I’m almost getting to the point to bring down. Thru God, he gave me my husband who sacrificed a lot and non stop encouraging me to fight for my illness and to those kind hearted people and friends I did managed to get back in track. I almost spend my life working abroad to support my family , I left my country year 2006 and work in Taiwan for almost 4 years, then I cross the country going here. Life is not easy but as long as you have faith in God there’s no impossible, now I am facing another difficulty or trials in life again because the cancer from my breast goes up to my head and it was stage IV now but I always never lose hope because I know a lot of people willfully giving their hands to help. This place is my second home even I straggled a lot for almost 10 years leaving here without seeing my intire family back home I never feel neglected because you guys ( Doctor’s, Social workers and friends ) still keep helping people like me. Seeing my whole family back home this coming Christmas is one of the greatest gift I could have. Thank you so much God bless and more power.
