Stories

Though thankful for Medicare in Ontario, we all know it isn’t perfect. And when it stops short for the least of these, who will step in?

This is a story about a single mom with two children.

One of her daughters required a medical device that cost $4800, but she did not have any savings left after meeting her bills each month. She qualified for a grant of $4000.00 and found a family friend who would provide $400, but she was still $400 short. A Care Planner was able to work with a church in Markham to provide the remaining $400 payable to Sick Kids Hospital and they were able to obtain the device they needed for daughters recovery.

Sometimes it takes a whole community to care for one individual. Government alone is not enough, family alone is not enough and friends alone are not enough alone. But together we can encourage individuals through giving if we are willing to see the gaps that must be filled.
