Father indebted for feature on his daughter

Dear editor,

Renee Andor has written a wonderful article about my daughter  in the Comox Valley Record (Ongoing cancer battle for Vanier alumna - July 24).

She interviewed Julia, as well as reading the article Julia and Michael posted, and summarized the situation very deftly. It is an excellent piece of journalism and the family sends our deep appreciation to both her and her editor, Terry Farrell, for their support.

I can report that there has been a wonderful outpouring of support from individuals who both know our family and from complete strangers, like a young man going into Grade 12 who” just wanted to make a small contribution, sorry it can’t be more...”

We are indeed fortunate to live in a truly caring community! Thank you so much.
