My son, Devon Fehr just turned 18 years old and has been in constant pain and unable to walk for the last 9 months (since January) due to tumors growing off his bones in his foot and shin. Devon moved to Kelowna, BC in November 2013 as he got a job there and wanted to experience like every other kid, what it was like to live on his own. While at work one day in January, he ended up getting injured and fractured the bones in his foot and that is when they came across the tumors. Since then, he has been to specialists and they are unable to do anything for him even prescribe pain killers that work to ease the pain. In the meantime he is in constant pain and unable to walk.

As a parent, it breaks my heart to see and hear it in his voice the amount of pain that he is in. It’s not like when he was younger when he got a boo boo and you were able to put a band-aid on it, give hugs and kisses and all was better. This pain doesn’t go away.

I was able to find a very replicable doctor (Dr. Dror Paley) that has dealt with patients from all over the world and is able and willing to do surgery, but unfortunately he is located in Florida. Due to our health care system in Canada and Work Safe in British Columbia there is no coverage for him to have surgery done in the United States.

I know this is a lot to ask, but I am in desperate need of your help. There is no easy way to ask for help and I hate asking as I have done everything myself for my children and I don’t know what to do. There is nothing I would not do for my children whether it is climb a mountain or walk across Canada and right now I need to be able to get my son this surgery so he can go on with his life, follow his dreams and make mistakes like every other kid, but more importantly so he can be pain free.

So if you can help out any way it would be greatly appreciated. Trust donation accounts for Devon have been set up at ATB Financial and also at TD Canada Trust Bank in Spruce Grove, Alberta. The accounts are as follows….

ATB Financial: Jacqueline Harriman in trust

  • Acct: 00333868100
  • Transit: 758

TD Canada Trust: Jacqueline Harriman in trust

  •  Acct: 6651617
  • Inst. No: 004
  • Transit: 89759

Just so you know any extra money that is raised will be going to help out another child that is in need of having surgery done and is not covered by our health care system in Canada.

Thank you so much for taking the time reading this letter and listening to my story.

Jacqueline Harriman (mom of Devon Fehr)
