It was amazing to see all the family and friends of patients come forward to learn more about DIGITS. One question that was asked during our meeting was “Can we have these meetings more often?”
One way to ensure that we have more frequent support group meetings is to aid us by showing your support and voting for DIGITS in the Aviva Community Fund from now until November 26th. Please help us provide further meetings for people struggling with the truths of DIGITS.
Having my family come forward and work together to advocate for DIGITS, truly means the world to me. My Mom is the lead Gala Fundraising Coordinator, my Dad is our number one advocate for ensuring we have sponsors for our events, and my dear husband is always willing to fill in wherever we need him.
I know we all have special stories of Mom and have all experienced the wonderful person that she is. But what Janine and I are most grateful for is being her daughters. Mom has always been a pillar of support, strength, and optimism in our lives.
We have been fortunate to grow up with Mom as she has and continues to inspire us every day. I don’t doubt that each one of us in this room has had an experience with Mom where she has inspired you. Mom is the type of woman we all look up to. We aspire to have the beauty, grace, and wisdom she possesses.
Mom is the one we call in a panic for….
Trying to find the giblets in the turkey
Hating our job
The neighbours are watering our grass again
He ate my shoes
Mom is the one who encourages us all to be better people and brings a smile to our faces every day. Today is for you Mom! Happy 50th Birthday! Here is to 50 more years of learning from you.
Today is a toast to you Mom and to all of those who support DIGITS. Thank-you for your commitment to helping improve our lives.
