Please join your neighbours in the Lakehill community as they fundraise in support of Dacian, a wonderful 9 year old boy.
There are lots of way to help - this Saturday, for example, Dacian's friend, Maia, is hosting a lemonade fundraiser between 11am and 3pm at 935 Ambassador Ave. How inspiring!
Dacian has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a rare and very severe type of MD; it is progressive, there is no cure or effective treatment, and the average life expectancy is around 25 years.
Dacian’s parents’ income, while modest, is above the cut-off for the kind of charitable and social assistance that he needs. The BC government has refused to help his parents offset the cost of a van. In fact, the BC government recently cut the program which was designed to help in situations like this.
The Lakehill Community is stepping up. Dacian’s friend Shaya, and her family raised over $1500 with a lemonade stand earlier this month. Check out this Chek TV story about it!
Please consider encouraging your kids to get involved and do their own fundraiser… or make a donation on your own: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/a-van-for-dacian/191432
