Our society isn’t set up for lengthy health issues. When one of a two-income family cannot work, financial stress builds. And quickly. Last year around this time, the amazing community (minor hockey, friends, family) surrounding Jim and his family held a fundraiser.

But really, there’s something just not right when you must worry about the electricity bill along with the availability of a new heart.
