The flight recipients mother has been battling cancer for about 3 years. It started in her lungs and has moved to her chest and liver. Just last week they informed her that it had metastasized to her brain and she has 3 months to live. The flight recipient has 3 children all boys that are about to lose their grandmother. Her mother has been one of the strongest women she knows and would give the shirt off her back to help someone. Two years ago the flight recipient also was diagnosed with breast cancer. After two surgeries chemo and radiation she is left with many side effects that have forced her to take multiple pain mediations daily and she was put on the Alberta works program to cover her pills. Her husband worked in the oil patch and has not worked as a directional driller since January 6, 2014. He now works for a company in Calgary. Between him losing his job and her cancer these last few years have been very trying to say the least. Her middle son moved home to help with bills but is currently on unemployment. She would love to bring him with her to visit her mother. Please allow her and her son to see Charlene one last time before her mother passes. It’s hard knowing that when she leaves her mother she will never see her again.
