Kade McBurney a brave little hero!

2 weeks ago I wrote about a local boy - Kade McBurney. Kade has been fighting cancer since 2010 when he was only 4 years old. I had an email today from a local business offering their help after reading my blog. Our local Hillcrest Chinese food restaurant Ming and Sing contacted me to see if I could get a message to the family offering them a free meal for their family. Another small gesture that in my mind leaves a big impact on my heart and theirs.

I don't know the family, but he's a student at the elementary school where both of our girls went to before highchool, which is where I first heard about the family. I wasn't sure at 1st who to contact. That's when I found the family blog diarizing the events over the last couple years. I encourage you to read it, but suggest sitting down with a box of kleenex and start to read from 2010 on.

Again I must say children are supposed to out live us as parents and I cannot even imagine the pain the McBurney family has gone through and will continue to endure.

What I can say is that I know they are in good hands at Canuck Place Vancouver, as this has become the charity that our office and many other Homelife offices in the lower mainland will be suporting for the 2nd time in our 11annual Homelife Charity Golf Classic this May 25, 2012. I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to tour the mansion last year and look forward to seeing the funds we raised and will continue to raise to help the Vancouver location as well as the new location to be built in Abbotsford.

If there is any way you can help the McBurney family or would like to donate to our golf classic to help other families like the McBurney family by supporting Canuck Place, let us know.
