One of our students has been diagnosed with Leukemia and is in Vancouver for treatment. Along with our wishes for her full recovery, donations to the family are appreciated as they go through this tough and uncertain time.

You may also make donations to them through Nelson Friends of the Family (please be sure to indicate that your donation is for a specific family – all funds raised go to the family.
