Kira Coutu (formerly Kira Molnar) was a close friend of my family, and today she was taken away from us at the way-to-young age of 27, leaving behind her 8 year old son Austin. Lets honour her memory by raising some money for Austin's future. More ...

Kira Coutu (some of you may know her as Kira Molnar) was a close friend of my family, and late last year she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a particularly nasty and aggressive form of cancer that usually strikes young children. She put everything she could into the fight against this brutal disease (including bone marrow transplants from her brother Tavis), but on June 2nd it claimed her life.

This would be tragic in any situation, but Kira was only 27 years old, just married the love of her life Trevor, and had a 8 year old son named Austin. Those of you who knew Kira and shared this journey with her know what an incredibly selfless and brave person Kira was. She faced this devastating situation with humor, grace, and courage, but one of the things that worried her was what things would be like for Austin when she was gone.

I think one of the best things we can do to honour her memory is do something she would do if she wasn't gone: support Austin in whatever dreams he has. All money raised will go to an RESP for Austin. Kira has already done the hard work of raising a bright, kind, creative, and incredibly brave little boy, let’s make sure he gets all the opportunities his mom would want him to have.
