Help family deal with cancer
Organized by: Carol Collins
In January, 2016 Donald was diagnosed with cancer and right now is in the hospital fighting for his life. The cancer is in his lungs and spine and also his leg. He is going through treatment and with all the resources for pain control it still is not enough. This has been very difficult and has taken it s toll on the family dealing with this illness and also because the hospital is located in a larger place away from where his family resides in Fort Resolution, Northwest Territories. Before he was diagnosed he was very active in working to help support his family of three and also his common law wife Carol. Due to his condition he can no longer work and is bedridden since he cannot walk. Carol continues to try her best to manage the household and try her best to support the family which is very hard with only one income as vehicle loan and utilities and food and other expenses occur . Costs are high for her and her family to travel to go see Donald as hotel, airline tickets or to hire someone to drive them , food and other expenses are needed. Also they would like to have their home renovated to become wheelchair accessible and also purchase a van that is built for wheelchair. Please help this family in this very difficult period by giving for their needs.
