Help the Irwin Family
If you live in Sooke or have heard of the the Tour De Rock, then you have heard of Patrick Irwin and his family.
Patrick is a long-time resident and past owner of the Stone Pipe Grill. Sadly, he is dying of colon cancer and is leaving behind a beautiful wife and three wonderful young girls who will have to grow up with only memories of their amazing dad.
The doctors have now exhausted all treatment options.
This is the second time this family has had to endure the devastating effects of cancer. Patrick and Emma’s daughter Daisy survived the leukemia she was diagnosed with soon after her birth in 2005.
Since then, Patrick and his family have been pillars of support to so many other families in the cancer community and a source of strength in both good and difficult times.
As the end draws near, this family needs to focus on each other. If this campaign can help to alleviate some of the financial burdens, it will also allow them to focus on making lasting memories with each other. They won’t have to worry about losing the only home the kids have ever known, think about how to pay the hydro bill and funeral expenses.
This family would be the last ones to ask for this type of support but it is needed and will help them.
