Client Stories

Tom, 1 Year Old Cancer Patient

"Six months ago, our lives were turned upside down with one word; cancer. When our family doctor said we should go to B.C Children's Hospital, we hit the road immediately. The initial visit was followed with tests, needles and days on end of wondering what was going on.On January 9th, 2010 the doctor confirmed that Tom had A.L.L and had to be treated with chemotherapy and other treatments. Once this happened, my husband and my life changed completely.

Rebecca Ann, 34 Year Old Mom

"I moved to Surrey a few years ago when my husband left and I needed to find affordable housing. I had heard about the food bank through many community resources, but never fully understood what the food bank could do for me and my 10 month old son. One of the hardest things I have ever had to do, was stand in line to receive food assistance...

Brian, 65 Year Old Single Male

"When my wife passed away 2 years ago, I was left with only one income; my old age pension. Together we built a strong life together but never saved enough money for our retirement.When Beth died, I had just under $10,000 in the bank to survive on. I continued to pay the mortgage, the bills, my car and food. When the money ran out 6 months ago, I was left wondering how I was going to get by on my OAP and how I ended up here; 65, broke and alone.
