New Fund for Medical Expenses

Darin Schaefer was diagnosed with cancer in June of 2019. Through his battle, he remained optimistic and full of hope. He felt there were so many people going through a difficult time that he knew he wanted to "pay it forward" to acknowledge the support given to him and the Schaefer family. Darin lost his battle in December, 2019 and the Schaefer family are proud to honour his wish by creating the Darin Schaefer Warrior Fund because there were so many warriors that stood behind them.


The Warrior Fund will provide financial support for those who have a critical and/or life-threatening disease. Applicants may be reimbursed up to $1,000 of medical expenses allowable under Canada Revenue Agency.
