  • Liz's Story

    My name is Elizabeth Ekering and I am 76 years old......I have arthritis and fifteen plus years ago i had a knee replacement. Unfortunately there were complications. Adhesions developed causing less mobility and terrific pain after being removed manually without an anaesthetic. Since then i have used a series of canes and walkers to aid in my walking. In March 2019 I was hospitalized for six days as my right leg lost all of its mobility. Since then I have been using a walker constantly. I have always been a swimmer which has saved me many moments of pain. I have been attending salt water pool sessions at the CB Wellness Centre in Kamloops BC which have helped immensely as the water temperature averages 92/93 degrees. The difficulty I have now is that I am an old age pensioner with a sparse income enabling me to pay my rent, utilities and food. I am asking for funding for a three months time period totalling $480.00 which would allow me to attend the pool six days a week........I thank you in advance for your kindness..........thank you for considering my application for funding which would begin on January 2020
