Generous donors supporting Hornby Island toddler and family
A total of $2,000 was donated to a trust fund for Ursula Joy since an article was published last week in the Comox Valley Record.
The Hornby Island toddler is recovering from surgery at B.C. Children's Hospital in Vancouver to remove a malignant brain tumour.
While recovering from the surgery, Ursula stayed with her family at an apartment that Comox Valley charity You Are Not Alone provided for the family to use.
She's back at B.C. Children's Hospital for a six- to nine-month regimen of chemotherapy and surgery to insert a feeding tube in her side.
Her parents are caring for her at the hospital, and a nanny is living with her sisters at the YANA apartment, so that the family can all spend time together as often as possible.
Ursula's parents are no longer able to work, so fundraising efforts have been taking place to help take financial burdens off these people who already have so much stress to bear.
The Ursula Joy Trust Fund has been set up. Donations can be made at any Coastal Community Credit Union branch.
