After about two years of treatment for cervical cancer my mother’s condition has become terminal
and she stopped treatment at the end of December 2015. While she lives in Calgary, I live in the US and
with my sister in NY, we have been trying to figure out a way that we can come to Calgary to assist
our mother as best we can.

There are two main reasons I am seeking travel help:
1) With the remaining months of our mother’s life, we would hope to be able to visit her to provide
assistance to get her affairs in order and provide some companionship. While she has a couple of
relatives in the area, they are dealing with their own hardships at the moment and mom spends most
of her day alone.
2) The second reason is that she has one grandchild, my daughter. My hope is to give the two of
them a couple of chances to spend quality time together to give my mother some positive
experiences at this trying time and hopefully to give my daughter more of a connection to her far
away grandmother.
