The flight recipient, Mark, is 60 years old and was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer in October of 2016. Mark was given 6-24 months to live and was laid off from his job at the end of 2016 after several decades of employment. His wife passed away 3 years ago, now the only family he has living in Calgary is his son. Telling his son about his illness was one of the hardest things he has had to do.

Mark is currently on AISH and funds are tight. He would love the option to be able to go home and see his 86 year old father, brother, aunt, cousins, and friends while he still feels the will to do so. It’s getting harder as time goes on and Mark relies on his son more each day to help. Mark would love to have his son come with so see where Mark grew up and to tell his son all of the stories only he can tell. Neither Mark nor his son have never been to England together, it would mean so much to have everyone together one last time.
