Pacific Medical Law has established a bursary fund in honor of Janna Epp, a beautiful, determined young girl with cerebral palsy, who faced challenges that few of us could imagine. Sadly, on October 11, 2012 Janna passed away.
In memory of Janna, Pacific Medical Law will donate $5,000 to a child living with cerebral palsy every year, to assist with that child’s care, therapy or recreation. The recipient of the award will be selected by Janna’s mother. This year the bursary recipient will be selected on July 30, 2016. Applications are due July 1, 2016.
We have had the privilege of reading the stories of many exceptionally devoted and committed parents who need assistance in providing the specialized care, support, therapy and equipment their child needs and deserves in order to reach their full potential in life. Pacific Medical Law will continue to honour Janna’s memory and support these families in the years to come by providing this bursary to one family every year. Pacific Medical Law will also continue to support families of children living with cerebral palsy by contributing both our time and resources to the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC, as well as financially supporting their bursary programs. We believe in making a difference for children living with cerebral palsy, both inside and outside of the courtroom
2015 Janna Epp Bursary Recipient
The recipient of the Janna Epp Bursary for 2015 is a little boy named Owen.
Owen, despite all of his challenges, is an incredibly happy kid. You can always expect a smile from him, which completely lights up a room.
Owen, like all boys, would like a bicycle. We have provided these bursary funds to Owen’s family to assist them in purchasing an adaptive bicycle for Owen, so that he will be able to ride alongside his brother.
It gives us great pleasure to be able to help make this possible for Owen, and we wish him and his brother endless fun on their bikes together.
Owen & his brother
2014 Janna Epp Bursary Recipient
We are pleased to announce that the recipient of the Janna Epp Bursary for 2014 is a little girl named Leila.
Leila is an extraordinary little girl with cerebral palsy who is amazingly strong and has a true zest for life. Leila works hard with her therapies and would like to try Feldenkrais therapy and therapeutic horseback riding to improve her muscle tone and decrease stiffness. She would also like a Squiggles postural support system to keep her safe and comfortable when she is out exploring the world.
It gives us a great deal of pleasure to support Leila and her mother, in this small way, to help Leila reach her full potential in life.
