Community Key is excited to announce that we’ve recently helped our first family! Our first family was nominated by Jill Pollack, a mortgage broker with Quantus Mortgage Solutions in the Whitehorse area, and a supporter of Community Key.
Gabriella, commonly called Gabby, was diagnosed with an intricate brain stem tumour. Shortly after being diagnosed, Gabriella endured a lengthy nine-hour craniotomy to remove the mass. Removal was deemed near impossible due to its sensitive attachment and placement within the brain stem.
The family is still waiting on the final diagnosis of the tumour; however, one thing is certain… there is a long road of treatments to get their little girl back.
Gabriella's mom and dad are currently staying on site at the Ronald MacDonald House while Gabby is in BC Children’s Hospital. While Yukon Health Care does assist in these measures, it is nowhere close to the assistance they will need to relieve financial stress and focus on loving and caring for their sick little girl.
On behalf of Community Key, Paul Bojakli and Jill Pollard of Quantus delivered the cheque to Gabby and her family to cover this month’s mortgage payment. We also continue talks with their mortgage lender to provide further relief.
