A Message From The Flight Recipient:

Mr. Fadoju’s sister is battling an aggressive form of breast cancer, which has now metastasized to her lungs. She is a single mother to her 6 year old son. She is originally from Nigeria and has very little support in Canada. She is undergoing treatments in the hopes to improve her quality of life, however, she is still experiencing debilitating symptoms, such as shortness of breath, fatigue and pain, which affect her ability to perform everyday tasks. She would greatly benefit from the love and support of a family member with her in Canada, in order to give her son all the love and care that he deserves. Mr. Fadoju is determined to be with his sister during this crucial time, but he needs the support of Give A Mile in order to make the trip to Canada. Please read a few words from Mr. Fadoju:

“My heart breaks, the pieces of my broken heart could pass the eye of a needle. When I heard that she is sick and I could not do anything. My mother is busy taking care of my grandmother during her final days on earth. But hope guides me. It guides me during the day and especially at night. Hope that in your magnanimity and love, that you will grant me permission to come to Canada and be with her so that I can take care of her, reciprocating a little of what she has done for me. When all hope seemed lost, she gave me a reason to live. She has always been a pillar of support, morally and financially. Love, compassionate, kindhearted, caring, the only adjectives I can use to qualify her, though all these are an understatement that cannot be over emphasized. I plan to support my sister with everyday things. Bring her son to school. Bring him to activities after school. Help with cooking. Help take care of my sister when she is feeling sick or weak after her treatment, as well as provide her with emotional support”.

We thank you for your consideration during this difficult time.
