Melinda, one of our valued housekeepers, let us know last week that her 12 year old son’s cancer had returned. This time it was in the neck and the spleen. She would need to time off work to travel with him off Island for medical care.
On Wednesday, Melinda and her son James will be traveling to Halifax, Nova Scotia by shuttle. She will overnight at the Ronald McDonald house and James will be admitted to the IWK. On Thursday morning, the skilled doctors at the IWK will remove the lump in James’ neck. Melinda plans on returning Thursday by shuttle service immediately following the surgery.
Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, February 1st from 7am to 10am, her friends at the Econo Lodge Charlottetown will be holding a coffee fundraiser for James.
We will be giving away free coffee and will be passing around a coffee can for donations to help offset the medical and travel expenses. There will also be a silent auction for a beautiful necklace, generously donated by Sunset Waters.
We hope you can join us.
