Below please find an example that might make us all think twice.
PB player par excellence.
As a background,
Maurice, a senior, was born in Russell Manitoba on a farm , grew up and worked in the Ruttan mine in Leaf Rapids Manitoba , went back to University in Brandon Manitoba and taught on an Indian reserve outside of Winnipeg. In 1981 he was diagnosed with heart disease and in 1995 had heart surgery which did not prove successful and in 2005 he was deemed disabled. In 2007 he was put on a list of possible donors and moved to Kamloops with his GP located in White Rock .
In 2007 he was being prepped for transplant and had it done in 2008 . His recuperative phase was spent in Casa Grande AZ and upon his return to Kamloops he started to play our sport. His recovery curve has been straight up with number of meds decreasing correspondingly. His skill level on the court is amazing approaching a 4.5 level, I estimate.
For the past three years he has been going to and playing at Casa Grande and now in South Surrey Rec. We are delighted to have he and his wife Barb as members,and welcome additions to our group of players. It is more of a game for ALL with him showing us the way to health …….
Maurice asks me to mention to you that Organ Donation Works (Canadian Transplant Association) which he is involved in asks that you consider organ donation in your giving plans.
BC Pickleball plans to give a donation to this worthwhile endeavor, so please consider doing it through us and we will give all donations to him.
Yours in Sport and health
