A KMHA Family Needs Our Help
Submitted By Rolland Cyr on Tuesday, October 22, 2019
From Time to time a KMHA family is in need of the greater KMHA Family's help. 

Meet Jeff Thompson. 

Jeff has been a non parent coach with Kitchener Minor Hockey for both our House League and our 4 on 4 program. In 2017 Jeff's wife, Sandy, was diagnosed with tentorial menengioma (a non-cancerours, slow-growing, brain tumour). 

In November 2018 Sandy was finally operated on to have her tumour removed.  Since Sandy's surgery she has had countless setbacks and multiple hospital stays, leaving Sandy unable to work. The stress of the hospital stays, lost answers, and financial burdens have proven to be trying for Sandy and Jeff, and their 3 wonderful children.   Jeff has kept a smile on his face throughout it all.   In all of Jeff's trips to the hospital to visit his wife, meetings with doctors, and working, he has chosen to remain as a coach for our players.  Jeff has also added in convening to his schedule, making a further impact on so many more kids. 

We are happy that hockey is a place where Jeff can find his smile, and some peace, in the middle of his storm.   Please consider donating to the Thompson Family GoFundMe and help a great family through a difficult time.
