“It gave me the comfort I needed”

“I want to thank all those who donated in support of the sleeper recliner
chairs. My husband has multiple health issues: Cancer, Crohn’s, Diabetes, Arthritis, COPD, Cardiovascular Disease, and Iritis. We spend a great deal of time in the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital and, quite often, the emergency department. These trying times are difficult for us to endure on a regular basis.
When my husband is sick, it requires time to figure out what is wrong because he struggles with so many complications. He often receives pain medication and is extremely sick. I do not leave his side during these times, as I deeply love my husband and need to be and remain part of his care and health.
A good example of this is the one time we went to emergency. It was a very stressful time for us both, and I was exhausted and afraid of what was to come. A nurse saw that I was uncomfortable in a chair trying to catch a little sleep while waiting. She offered me the sleeper recliner chair! I was so grateful to put my feet up and lay down for some much- needed rest and it gave me the comfort I needed. It may not seem big to other people, but for me it was everything!!!
Thank-you again for your kindness and generosity.”
