Com­mu­nity ral­lies around Glover fam­ily

The Drumheller Mail - - FRONT PAGE - Diane Thomas The Drumheller Mail

The com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to rally be­hind a Drumheller fam­ily who lost a hus­band and father, Brian Glover, af­ter a lengthy bat­tle with can­cer.

Brian’s wife Corri told The Mail, “In Septem­ber 2014, doc­tors found a growth on his right lung and was clas­si­fied as stage 4. In De­cem­ber he had ra­di­a­tion fol­lowed by four rounds of chemo­ther­apy. In Au­gust chemo­ther­apy started once again, how­ever tests showed the can­cer was more ag­gres­sive. I took leave from work to take care of him.”

A Go Fund Me re­quest has been set up by his sis­ter and friend Sharon He­bert & Rachelle Leon­hardt and a por­tion of that re­quest is below:

“My dear friend, Brian Glover, has fought a coura­geous bat­tle against can­cer for the last year and a half. For the last few weeks, Corri has tire­lessly stayed by Brian’s side 24/7 in the hos­pi­tal; her courage, strength, com­pas­sion, love and de­vo­tion is noth­ing short of re­mark­able.

Ob­vi­ously, this long jour­ney has been very dif­fi­cult phys­i­cally, emo­tion­ally and fi­nan­cially. There have been count­less trips to out-of-town doc­tors and hospi­tals, med­i­cal and pre­scrip­tion ex­penses, in­creased food costs to en­sure Brian was eat­ing as well as pos­si­ble and ad­di­tion to keep­ing up with the nor­mal day-to­day liv­ing ex­penses and du­ties for her fam­ily.

We have started this page in hopes that their fam­i­lies and friends could find it in their hearts to do­nate even a small amount to help Corri cover some of her up­com­ing ex­penses. She still has a very tough road ahead but stays fo­cused on her only pri­or­ity right now, that be­ing what is best for Bran­don and Dariel, with­out wor­ry­ing about how the ex­penses will be paid.

Hope­fully, we can con­trib­ute even this lit­tle bit to ease the bur­den for Corri and give some com­fort and re­as­sur­ance that his fam­ily will be okay through this dif­fi­cult time. Our sin­cere heart­felt thanks go to ev­ery­one who has taken the time to read this page and pos­si­bly be so gen­er­ous as to con­trib­ute to this fam­ily.”

Corri also says, “I am grate­ful to ev­ery­body that has do­nated so far.”
