David Foster Foundation  Supporting families whose children are going through the life-saving organ transplant process 💚 READ the summer newsletter ⬇️

TWO weeks until the 7th Annual Vancouver Island Motor Gathering held at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit on August 26, 2018, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
The David Foster Foundation is honoured to be a benefactor at this event alongside Cowichan District Hospital. In 2017, the Motor Gathering raised an outstanding $174,000 to support organizations benefiting children.
This is certainly a day you won't want to miss! Come out with your family (including fur family!) and enjoy an afternoon of fun while browsing a stunning showcase of vehicles and motorcycles.

Last week we embarked on a very exciting adventure with our partners, supporters, and good friends Gain Victoria & Villa Eyrie Resort.
We hosted an intimate group of donors for a Simply Spectacular Experience on Vancouver Island where a series of world-class west cost activities were offered, entertainment was enjoyed, and friendships were made.
It was an honour to have Brian McKnight, Shelea Frazier, Pia Toscano, Fernando Valdez, and Angelica Hale join 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster on stage and lend their talents.

Thank you to all of our committed sponsors, generous donors, and hard-working volunteers who made those 4 days so spectacular!

From our family to yours, wishing you a happy and safe Canada Day!
Canada Day is an opportunity for people to gather in their communities to celebrate Canadian heritage and achievements.
This Sunday, while you are with your beloved family and friends, we encourage you to talk about the importance of organ donation and how the gift of life can one day save a life. Much like Lily, who is pictured with David. This darling girl received her life-saving liver transplant in 2013 and continues to live life to the fullest.

The summer newsletter is out! Read about Owen's life-saving kidney transplant, a family outing at a Toronto Blue Jays game in the WestJet box, information about the 2018 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering, and more! Link in our bio! .

Happy Father’s Day Dad. You are selfless, humble, funny, wise, generous , and always thinking about others before yourself. Too bad you didn’t pass on any of these qualities to Erin. ❤️❤️

Happy Father’s Day, Owen and Travis!
.
Owen was born in renal failure and his parents, Sarah and Travis, were told that their son would need a kidney transplant to survive.
Travis, Owen’s father, tested as a perfect match for his son, but they had to wait until Owen was big enough to receive an adult-size kidney. The family watched over Owen’s health for 18 months, finally, in April of 2016, Travis successfully donated one of his kidneys to Owen. After a four-week recovery period they were able to return home together.
.
Father’s Day is a special time for Owen’s family to celebrate Travis and the special gift of life that he has given to Owen-- a little boy who has brought so much joy into their lives and the lives of all those around him!

Happy Father’s Day to the incredible fathers, role models, and caregivers who support those in their community. Your strength, kindness, and love lift your children up and inspires them to lead with compassion. Tag your Father’s Day hero(s)!

Happy Father’s Day, Gavin and Matthew.
.
Gavin was born in the spring of 2016 with a rare congenital heart disease known as Shone’s syndrome.
Matthew worked in Calgary to support his son and wife while Gavin received medical care at the Stollery Hospital in Edmonton. At every opportunity, Matthew made the six-hour round trip to be by his family’s side in the hospital. The David Foster Foundation was grateful to be connected with Gavin’s family and provide financial assistance to ensure Matthew could continue to visit his son and wife during Gavin’s heart transplant journey.
.
Today, Matthew can enjoy quality time with his son in the comfort of their loving home. Gavin is happy and thriving, thanks to another family’s generous and compassionate decision to support organ donation.
