Read "Rally for Aiden here"
Hello Brothers and Sisters,
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the members of the IBEW Locals 258, 213 and Rokstad Power Corporation for their generous support given to me and my family during a difficult time. Without that support we would have not been able to spend precious time with our son while he was sick and would have surely been in financial distress during that time.
Our son Aiden unfortunately passed away on October 6th, 2013 at the age of nine. He fought a courageous battle with a rare form of brainstem cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma and passed away one month after his diagnosis.
If I can take anything positive from this experience I would have to say that the love and support shown to me and my family has been exceptional.
We thank-you for the baked goods and meals, financial support, cards and letters, and even had a crew of 20+ IBEW and COPE 378 members who are currently locked out by FortisBC participate in a home and yard makeover while we were caring for our son at BC Children's Hospital and Canuck Place Children's Hospice.
I would also like to thank my family and friends who have a long history within the IBEW for your love and support.
