Paula Thomas, mother of Jenna Homeniuk, who is currently in Children’s Hospital in Calgary battling leukemia, has a big thank you for the fund-raising efforts of Kimberley residents.

“We would like to give a very warm thank you to our amazing community and friends who took part in Jenna’s fund-raiser,” Thomas said. “This event was a huge success and we are very grateful to you all. Shari  Lamarche and her team of helpers amazed us. Their dedication and hard work made this event a huge success.  We would also like to thank all the businesses, the Lions Club, the Rotary Club and individuals who gave their time and gifts for the silent auction. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity.”

Thomas says that Jenna is doing as well as could be expected.

“We have six to seven months of chemo treatments ahead,” Thomas said. “But she’s strong, her spirits are up. We are believers and we are confident she’ll make it through. It’s a rough road, but she’s doing okay.”
