Caring people reach out to family during cancer fight

When bad things happen, people seem to come out of nowhere to help their fellow man. It just warms my heart that people can be so giving. My husband Gilles and I would like to extend our most gracious thanks to our family, friends, neighbours and complete strangers for their amazing support during these past two years.

When bad things happen, people seem to come out of nowhere to help their fellow man. It just warms my heart that people can be so giving.

My husband Gilles and I would like to extend our most gracious thanks to our family, friends, neighbours and complete strangers for their amazing support during these past two years.

The support from central office and the district and from a group of friends, actually who I consider my extended family, from my work at Lindsay Thurber have been truly amazing by putting on a garage sale and bottle drive and giving individual donations to raise money to help support our growing expenses during the time when we stayed in Edmonton for operations and treatments for Gilles’ cancer.

There was a family from Edmonton who offered to share their home with me while I stayed in Edmonton during Gilles’ first operation. I was there for five weeks. They expected nothing in return. They just wanted to help.

The Canadian Cancer Society helped with expenses such as travel and accommodations and the organization, Haying In The Thirties, who gave a one time donation for cancer patients.

Now, there are more people who are offering their well wishes and support after reading our story about the stolen generator (Generator stolen from man battling cancer, Page A3, Advocate, Feb. 28).

We are truly blessed to have such special people in our lives and if and when they might need our help, we will be there for them.

Thank you all.

Gilles and Sherrel Comeau
