I had no real idea what this actually was, much less did I know how to set up such a fund. My two loving daughters didn’t ask me they just didit. I was surprised but not upset .once they explained the purpose I was grateful for their help. Somehow I have to have the chemotherapy treatment and really had no idea how I was going to pay for it. The money has been flowing in from the first day and I’m amazed. Of course the money is the important goal, however, it is not what has opened my eyes to the amazing people that care. Besides donations we have received some of the most heartfelt comments of compassion and well wishes. So many of these people are friends of my daughters, I have never met them, yet here they are supporting me. Allow me to give you just one example. A young man from Alberta who knew Susannah when they were in college at Camrose sent $150 and when sSusannah thanked him he said this. He is a veteran and your dad, nothing more need be said. Can you image how difficult it is to write this blog, I’m having trouble seeing through my tears of gratitude. I cannot find words suitable to express how my everlasting gratitude and thanks can be expressed. My only lingering anger is our provincial government, that they could be so uncaring and cold. But that feeling is quickly crushed by the outpouring of human kindness I have received over this last weekend. May God Bless each and every one of you, my faith has been restored beyond all measure

    I am glad that the support you are getting outweighs the negative feelings towards the health system. I just can’t understand why if a doctor says “ He needs this” the system can say anything except yes.
    Stay strong sir, you can win this one!
