Jan 28, 2010

I have bad news. Anaya started having seizures last night. I was up with her all night and I've made the decision that we must move closer to Nelson. We have to give up our beautiful home here in Procter. Anaya is very fragile right now and we need to maintain her comfort as best we can. She is our highest priority. Please help us find a place to live. I have to break the news to my landlords, I know they'll be sad to see us go. I wish with all my heart we could stay.

Home Needed in or very near Nelson for family of 4. One of our children, our youngest daughter, Anaya, has a very serious medical condition and we need to move to be closer to medical services (Dr's, Hospital, Hospice). Currently we live 45 minutes from town and it's too far in emergencies. Optimally we need a two or three bedroom house/ unit/duplex /townhouse/ suite that is accesible without too many stairs. We need to reduce our expenses so that we can spend time with her as she completes her life journey. We'd love to spend less than $1000 but can afford up to $1300.

We are outdoor enthusiasts and take pride in keeping our yard beautiful. For the past 1.5 years we've been responsible for an acreage with fruit trees, perennial gardens and way too much lawn - and we took good care of it. We love it here but we must move. Please help us find an awesome new home!

We are responsible respectful tennents with excellent landlord references. We have a medium well behaved dog but are willing to give him up if need be. Please if you have a place call us. If you know of someone else - please have them call us. 250.509.0593

If you wish you could help but don't know how please contribute to Anaya's moving Fund by clicking the donate now button on the right of the blog.
