A $5,000 bursary has been established in honour 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 applications are due June 28, 2019.
This is the 6th year this bursary will be awarded to a family with a child living with cerebral palsy, and our family of recipients keeps growing. As in the past, we have kept the bursary application as simple as possible, without any financial questions, and without any stipulations about what the bursary can be used for – we believe families know best what their child needs and we trust them.
The notice and application form can be found here.
Please forward this to any family who you think could benefit from some financial support. Of course, if you or any families have any questions, or need any more information, please don’t hesitate to call. If you would like to receive paper copies of the notice and application form, please let us know and we would be happy to put a few in the mail.
