2022 Letter: Dear families, friends, and colleagues:
As most of you may know, My wife, Amy, passed away almost two years ago from Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), an aggressive form of blood cancer.
From 2018, for two years while she struggled with this cancer, I personally observed on how this disease devastated her and all of our families and friends around her. The number of hospital visits, the blood transfusions, needles, and chemo treatments are beyond imagination. While we had brilliant doctors and nurses who look after her, the disease persisted. The pain she endured, which she suffered in silence as she did not want to worry us, and we felt so helpless on how to comfort her. In the end, God recalled my angel home and she finally received peace and no more pain.
Last year, I was committed to honor her memory by supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) as a member of their Edmonton Executive Leadership Committee, and to raise funds under the banner “The “A” team” for remembering Amy. With your generous support, we exceeded our expectations and raised a little over $16,000 in the Light the Night 2021 event. Thank you, and I need
to tell you that I am not finished yet as I hope to continue to support this organization until together, we find a cure for Leukemia. This may take several years, and I willing to partake this journey with your support.
In planning with the Light The Night 2022 Campaign, The Edmonton Executive Leadership Committee wishes to raise adequate funds to retain a medical researcher. I have committed to personal target of $10,000, within an overall target of my team of at least $20,000 this year to support this initiative.
During our difficult journey with Amy, I was introduced to many amazing doctors and nurses at various cancer clinics, and I believe, together with additional researches, a cure will be found. I am asking for your financial support. Please be generous as the needs are great. Remember your donations are tax deductible.
