The family and friends of Kenn MacDonald are coming together to raise money to help with his battle against Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

On April 25th 2012, at the young age of 29, Kenn was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. In May he began the first of what will be 6 rounds of ABVD chemotherapy with a possibility of more chemo or radiation therapy afterward. Chemotherapy kicks your butt, and I'm astounded by the strength Kenn summons up to face each day in a positive way. Kenn has had to move to be closer to the BC Cancer Agency, which meant giving up his dog, Buddley, who was his best companion. A normally avid downhill biker in the summer is now faced with just enough energy to get out of bed some days. With the severity of Kenn's illness he can't work, and shouldn't have to, but because of this his reality has been a mere 15 weeks of EI Sickness Benefit, to then be denied his CPP claim; leaving Kenn with no income. That means no way to pay his credit card bills, loan payments, phone bill, car insurance, utilities, rent, or even afford to eat. It seems unbelievable that anyone who is sick would ever have to deal with such issues, but it's a sad and unfortunate truth that the government literally leaves you high and dry in a situation like this. We, of course, would never let Kenn starve and he has experienced amazing love, support, and generosity from his family. Hodgkin's lymphoma is a highly treatable cancer and we have a great outlook on the journey to recovery, and more importantly CURE, but he needs our help getting there. I understand that times aren't easy for anyone, right now Kenn knows that best, I'm asking you to show your love and support by donating anything you feel comfortable with in order to get him through this without the stress and worry of figuring out where next months rent will come from.
