My grandfather is at the Provincial Palliative Care Centre in PEI.  I have a lot of great memories of spending time with my grandfather.  It would mean so much to me to be able to get to the island to see him and be there to say good-bye.  I don’t have the money to get my own flight and this would enable me to do this.  My grandfather had a way of attracting a lot of us kids and was always very supportive to any of my friends and other family members.  He would always encourage us and be the one to support us.  It means a lot for you to consider this request.
It means a great deal to me to see my grandfather but also to be there to spend quality time with my extended family.

From Carly:
I consider my grandfather to be a very special person.  I have always had a very special relationship with him.  It has been very difficult not being able to be closer to him when he is in his final days.  My grandfather has been living with cancer and it has been a struggle for the family.  It has been a struggle for all of us to not be able to give him the support at this time.  My brother and I would both like to get to PEI to say our goodbyes to our very special grandfather.
My grandfather was always there to listen to me and support me.  I just want to be able to say my final good-bye.
