A little bit about Ladonna Anne Ritchie

  Ladonna is the 2nd child of Harold and Caroline Genoe she has two other sisters Carla and Heather there mom died from a bowel disease in 1980. and our dad died 1997 from cancer. Ladonna was diagnosed with duodenal cancer stage 4 in may of 2013. Since then she has had a tough go with chemo and radiation, but still has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. the cancer is very rare and is inoperable so it all goes with out saying we have no idea how long she will be with us.

  Ladonna has a heart of gold!! She took in anyone that needed help when they had no where to go, her door was always open she would help out anyone female, male or other wise it did not matter to her. Even as sick as she is she would still help people out that showed up on her doorstep, in other words her door is always open, in total I think she has helped out at least 15 people from all walks of life, and would not hesitate to give them a hot meal and a warm blanket and the shirt off her own back and a nice comfy couch to sleep on!

 Needless to say, funds are tight with all this going on, and what we want to do is help bring a smile to her face by sending her to a hockey game!  

 She has lost over 90 pounds due to the radiation and chemo and at this point chemo is out till she get stronger. She has a 21 year old son that lives with her as well and looks after her, she does not get out much as she is tired and weak so she pretty much just stays home and watches TV and sleeps.

 One of her wishes is to get to Rogers Arena to see her fav hockey team kick some butt and watch her favorite player Alex Burrows and her other player Ryan Kesler I would like to take her on the 20th of November because Ryan was traded and he would be there at that time.

 We are trying to raise the funds to take her over there and hopefully get her a Burrows jersey and if there is  anything left over to use to make her life a little easier with buying ensures etc. As I said .. Money is a bit tight for everyone, Everyone who knows Ladonna, knows she would not ask for help!  Please Know that this is NOT LADONNA asking for help, this is her friends and family trying our best to make one of her wishes come true!  Please find it in your heart to help us help her!  We have no idea how much longer she is going to be with us, and we want to at least try our best to help her be confortable!

 

Thanks again for taking the time to read this, and also for those who can help, thank you in advance!  Should you have any questions please feel free in contacting any of us!  

 

Thank you all

Carla Kyte.
