Thank-you for helping Corbin

Connie Lew's 10-year-old son Corbin Lew was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma, which is a cancerous tumor in his brain

Editor;

As of Feb. 11 my 10-and-a-half-year-old son Corbin Lew was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma, which is a cancerous tumor in his brain.

The treatment for this type of cancer is chemotherapy, which has a very high success rate. However, due to the treatment, Corbin will have to remain in the Lower Mainland for the duration of his six-month treatment.

As such, his brother Chris and I will be traveling to the Children’s Hospital and back to Castlegar taking turns with the boys’ dad, to be with Corbin. Assistance to help with travel costs, necessary medical treatments or supplies and food expenses would be greatly appreciated. A trust fund has been set up at the Kootenay Savings Credit Unions in the East and West Kootenay areas.

Our family has received a lot of support from our friends, relatives and our community, and we thank everyone for their generous donations of money, time and for supportive words and prayers.

Thanks to everyone.

Connie Lew
