Another fundraising event was held in Williams Lake to help a 15-month old Big Lake boy with brain cancer.
On Sunday an all you can eat pancake breakfast was held on the upper-level parking lot of Signal Point Gaming with proceeds going to support Tristan Rempel and his family.
Event coordinator Dale Todorowich said they raised roughly $1,300 and Gateway Casinos matched that.
But the total didn’t end there.
Todorowich said later this week he was very ecstatic when he received a donation from Williams Lake Log Haulers Association for $5,000.
Back on Sunday, May 26 a community fundraiser was held in Big Lake for the Rempel family that raised more than $13,000.
The treatment Tristan needs is in a health care facility in Seattle and he is currently with his mom at BC Children’s Hospital.
“The swelling has gone down significantly and there is no sign of residual tumor (the tumor has not grown back). The doctors are confident he is well enough to do his spinal tap to see if there are any cancer cells in the spinal fluid, and it is scheduled for Monday,” Tristan’s Aunt Jill wrote in an update Thursday.
“All of this has been so encouraging. I was excited to hear the tumor hadn’t come back as I now believe he will get better and he will beat this.”
