Corporate Communications

On behalf of my wife Stacey and I, I would like to offer our gratitude for the well wishes, prayers and messages of support we have received over the last several days.

Thank you, especially, to those who have shared their own transplant story with us. Your encouraging words have meant a lot as we take this journey together.

We also sincerely appreciate the privacy that we have been afforded during this time. Our surgery took place, as scheduled, on Monday, October 2, 2017, and we continue to take our recovery day by day.

Many have asked what they can do to support us. While your thoughts and prayers are enough, we would ask you to consider a donation to one of our favourite charities in lieu of flowers or gift baskets.

Thank you, again, for your support,

Mark & Stacey Saunders
