I am requesting a flight for myself and 16 month old baby to go home for Christmas. We are currently receiving treatment at the Vancouver Children’s Hospital. Rory was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer this past August. We were planning to drive home a week before Christmas, however, Rory has been admitted into hospital due to a fever and a stem cell harvest. This has led us to limited time to travel and on unpredictable road conditions. We have not been able to travel home to see Rory’s brother in two months and will not have a chance again once his treatment continues on Dec 29th. We would love the opportunity to safely travel home to be with our family this holiday season.

Thank you for considering our request. Being home with our family would be the best gift we could ever imagine.

Flight Hero Sponsor:

Mark Sutherland has committed to helping Give A Mile raise at least 25,000 miles for one of the 25 flights of compassion that we hope to make possible this 2015 holiday season.

We are so thankful for all the miles donated and the help this provides us to award flights to people seeking hope, hugs and togetherness with loved ones in their time of greatest need.
