Let me start by saying I am thinking about all of you, I am here for you if you want to reach out, to pm me, to connect, this world is changing and it’s stressful but we are all in this together.
I want to encourage everyone that we need remember the things that we supported before all this. Our Overnight Shelter, the Food Banks, Canadian Cancer society, Mental Health Awareness, Addiction Awareness, Rare Disease and Autoimmune Conditions, Diabetes, Heart Health, Autism, Down Syndrome, the list goes on and on.
Individuals and Families are still living with day to day challenges, these didn’t stop when the Covid Pandemic was announced, many health conditions or career choices increase the risks or challenges of Covid-19.
