Dear editor,

We cannot begin to imagine how we can individually thank the hundreds of people in our community who graciously gave from their hearts to help our family and our son, Brodie Pratt, over the past four months during his illness and diagnosis of cancer.

Between friends, family, volunteers, coworkers, acquaintances, and the universe — it was overwhelming and we witnessed a miracle!

The endless food that was lovingly prepared nourished our bodies, the calls and cards picked our spirits up, and the hundreds of livestrong bracelets worn by others has shown visual encouragement for survivorship.

In addition to all of this, the fundraiser/benefit at the Flying Canoe West Coast Pub organized by school district employees, family, and friends was incredible, successful, and fun for those that attended (SO wish we could have been there).

We would like to also thank the endless number of staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital who gave Brodie excellent care throughout his diagnosis in addition to many generously giving financial support.

Because of people like you, Brodie will have his financial and medical needs assisted over the next year and enable him to heal without additional stress. Such a gift is priceless!

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes, because they have been heard. Thank you for your support, because it was needed. Thank you for your love and your light to help guide our way.

Brodie has been through surgeries, treatments, plus aggressive chemo and has gained such amazing strength from all those that have surrounded our family. He has now finished the tough part of his journey and is now on the gentle but slow path to regain his health and strength. He is determined to win this battle.

Once again, thank you to everyone for your never ending support, encouragement, love and motivation.

You will never know how much this has meant to all our family and words cannot express our gratitude! We feel truly blessed.

Brodie Pratt and family,

Comox Valley
