The power of community

Sept 25, 2020 @ 1900

We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of support for Glenn and the #BringGlennHome GoFundMe campaign. You can read the update here. We’re so humbled by every one of your donations. They are all important in reaching our goal. Thank you so much.

As of today, Friday, Sept 25, we have reached just over 80% of our original goal and together we’ve raised an astounding $123,000.00 from 707 donors. As one friend said, ”that’s a lot of money and a lot of love.” Situations like this show us how deeply connected we really are and the collective power of community.

We are eagerly awaiting an update from Glenn’s neurologist with new information about the timing of his transfer home. It’s been a long and excruciating wait and I wish we had more details to share with you at this point. We want you to know we have read each and every one of your lovely messages and we feel your support.

The girls and I are learning to come to terms with the situation and we are supporting each other through the ups and downs. The best and most difficult part of each day is when we talk to Glenn over FaceTime from his hospital bed. For now, it’s a one-way conversation but we are holding on to hope that he finds some comfort in hearing our voices. We read all your kind messages to him and we believe he can feel the love.

Thank you all so much for continuing to support Glenn and all of us through this.

    Wish there wasn’t such a geographical distance between us !. Please know that all the Campbell’s here in Ontario are holding Glenn and your family close in our thoughts. Stay strong!!

    This seems like one of the most difficult of situations. Not being there and seeing for yourselves. Here’s hoping that he is back on Canada’s west coast very very soon.
