My story… Well, for me that is hard to talk about but sometimes we just have to do the hard things. I am looking to go and see my mother who is losing the battle with brain cancer. She has had several brain surgeries over the last 10 years and countless treatments but has now had to go into hospice. I have always tried my best to visit as often as I can but living in Windsor, Ontario and my mom being in Calgary, Alberta it is not easy for me to get there. The phone calls aren’t always enough but sometimes they’re all you can do. As a single person living so far away and supporting herself I’m not always able to afford the flights to get there as often as I would like. I would really like to see my mom one more time before things take an even bigger turn for the worse. I don’t want to think back and regret missing that opportunity. This program was brought to my attention just a few days ago and it is nice to see that there are good hearted people out there willing to help others.
