An area woman is seeking charitable people to donate travel points in the hopes that she can get to see her family for Christmas.

Angela Beaudry spends three days a week, for the past 13 years, getting dialysis treatments in Terrace, and has been unable to see her family in Winnipeg for nine years.

Her condition is the result of complications from kidney stone treatments.

Her return home would provide two benefits; one, that she’d connect with family who she has fallen out of contact with. And two, she’d try to source a kidney match from within her family for a possible transplant.

In order to be able to make it to Winnipeg though she’s hoping some people can help her out. Friends have already pitched some of their own Air Miles, but she hasn’t quite reached her goal.

If you think you can help her out, she welcomes phone calls to 250-632-2513.
