In 2017, Fast Tracks invests in compassionate care
10% of every sale made in September 2017 will be donated to the Psychosocial Oncology Clinic at the Princess Margaret Hospital.
Lets do this again!
"Rising waters raise all ships"
Last year, with your help, Fast Tracks cut a cheque to The Princess Margaret Hospital for over $4000
We are pretty confident that this year we can do more. Last week, Lionel did his part by walking over 100km from Princess Margaret Hospital in downtown Toronto to his place in Barrie, all the while raising money for the One More Year GoFundMe project.
With his part of the job done, it's now our turn to step up! So starting September 1st. until the end of the month 10% of everything sold on the Fast Tracks site, including the new Mt. Albert Scale Lumber. items, will be donated to this cause.
Over the last several years, Lionel has invited us into his personal life through his Facebook feed. Those of us who have been following him online have found that this struggle has not slowed him down one bit. Since his diagnosis, his posts have remained both entertaining and uplifting, and at the same time very moving. His short video vignettes of his day to day life shed light into what it is like to live knowing that your time might be short.
Lionel was told he wouldn't live another year, so he decided to live for three. So far. Lionel's attitude and zest for life is boundless, and we have no doubt that he will be around for several more years.
One thing that Lionel has credited for his continued success in dealing with all this is the Psychosocial Oncology Clinic at the Princess Margaret Hospital. Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital is one of the world's top cancer research hospitals, and Lionel has been receiving the best care possible anywhere in the world.
In August Lionel started up a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the Psychosocial Oncology Clinic, with a goal of raising $5000. As Lionel has often said, "cancer fries your brain" and patients benefit a great deal from the support they receive. Seeing this, I thought there could be a good opportunity for Fast Tracks to help out. I decided to commit a portion of each sale for the entire month of September to this cause. With your help I'm confident we can help Lionel exceed his goal!
I am also going to issue a challenge to all other manufacturers in our little hobby to do the same. Rising waters raise all ships. Every little bit helps everyone. So challenge your customers to help you raise money for cancer research. You don't need to support this specific fund, pick one that is important to you and do your best to give back!
Lionel, we admire your courage, and thank you for your friendship. Here's to One More Year!
