Thank you most Kindly for visiting My Page..
My story is a sad one but my reasons for starting the page will hopefully Raise awareness for ABI (Acquired Brain Injury).
My name is Leanne, I'm originally from ireland. I moved to Edmonton last November.
I became friends with Steve from the moment I moved here. He was such a lovely man. So full of life and stories. I work part time in an irish pub over here and I have grown to know everyone thought so well of steve , he had a healthy lifestyle and loved playing golf!
I noticed I hadn't seen Steve for a couple of days and asked his friends had they heard from him to which there reply was no.Trying not to go into too much detail , myself and my boyfriend Shane went to check on him to find out he had taken a stroke! We called the ambulance immediately and he was taken away. Steve had taken a stroke 6 days previous. I'm so deeply saddened that he lost his fight on the 4/5/2015 and I feel that setting up a fundraising page to Raise awareness will make something positive about this whole experience.
Remembering a conversation myself and Steve had he said 'I Had a good life and If i were to die I would die a happy man'
And I'm just so thankful that we got to him when we did and he passed away safe , warm and not alone.
So if you could please donate to Headway I would forever be grateful as they do such a fantastic job with helping people who have Acquired a brain injury with rehabilitative training and so much more.
Rest in paradise steve you will be greatly missed by us all.
Leanne & Shane
