MMTPT138 ~ DESTINATION STATION
This week's destination is Brampton, Ontario. We will be sending our cards to Kim, the cousin of fellow SCSer/Teapotter Laurie (Virgo05).
Kim was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with stage 4 prostate cancer which has spread to his bones. Kim is young, only 41. A recent bone scan showed the cancer is in his arms, legs, spine and pelvis. Kim was relieved to find it had not spread to his other organs. He considers this a good sign. Kim has started radiation treatment as well as hormone therapy and he continues to remain positive yet realistic!
Laurie is requesting that the cards we send to her cousin be postive, uplifting, and funny. Anything along those lines, to boost his spirits for the rough days that lay ahead.
You wonder why Ford? Kim is the Chairman of Local 584 at the Ford Motor Company. His favorite hockey team is the Boston Bruins. He loves football but doesn't have a favorite team. He recently has taken up landscaping/gardening. His favorite food is steak and a side of crab legs and he loves red wine and having his friends over for dinner!
Laurie suggested that if you belong to a Union, when you sign your card, you could include your Local's name and number! She thinks Kim would get a big kick outa that!
Here is Kim's address:
6 Cox Crescent
Let's send some light hearted happy cards to Kim and our thoughts and prayers as he has a difficult fight on his hands.
Thank you from me, thank you from Laurie and thank you from Kim's wife.
