  • From Jessica Ryan

    Being diagnosed at age 23 a young woman’s life began to unravel and change more than she could have ever expected.  Diagnosed with stage 3 cancer Jamie Carswell fought through every hurdle and obstacle in her way!

    Jamie faces challenges that only very few have to undertake, and time and time again continues to battle the disease.  At age 29 she became a mom and had a dear friend carry a child for her as, the disease made that challenging.  Now age 34 Jamie continues to battle her 4th bout with cancer over her 11 years of diagnosis.  This life-altering disease has left her a single mom to a 5 year old son and she now requires daily homecare by her mother Pauline Carswell.  Pauline is known in Red Deer by her many years of competitive and leisure leagues at The Red Deer Curling Club.  Her Father Robert Carswell owns and operated the non profit Red Deer Boxing Club for over 30 years in Red Deer.  Both her parents help raise her son alongside her as well as reside together.  Three generations living in one home, and not the usual way we are taught to view life.  Her mother attends to her daily needs and this has proven difficult in a home filled with barriers that have given little accessibility to continue care at home.

    Currently they are building a wheelchair accessible home to help ease and support her daily life.  This home will provide the required access for her future, while providing a forever home for her son to grow up in.

    The Event will be held November 24, 2018 – 7:00 pm at Elephant & Castle Pub and Restaurant #500 Timberlands Drive, Red Deer.
    (Dinner available 5:00 pm onward with pre-sale tickets)

    We are pre-selling tickets which will include : Pub Classic Dinner menu ( excluding Pub Steak) and live entertainment.
    We will be having door prize, raffle items, silent auction and more.

    We ask you to invest in our mission by attending or contributing to our fundraiser Pub night.

    We have a account set up for those that want to contribute but cannot make the event.

    Your participation as a sponsor of cash donation, goods or services will help ensure that three generations of family are given financial help for medical costs, loss of income, costs to raise a child, and future needs for their forever home.  These financial burdens are greatly stressful on everyone involved.  I am making it my mission to alleviate some of these factors causing daily concern for the family.

    With the help from our community we can take part in the mission and we can do it together!

    Thank you for helping us reach our goals!

    Alberta’s newest home lottery features a 1.5 million dollar dream home in south east Red Deer.  With 4,600 square feet of space, this dream home is verging on “mansion” status.  We’ll show you a video and photos as well, but this luxurious home by Abbey Platinum Master Built is something you really should see for yourself.  It’s at 57 Larratt Close in the south east community of Laredo.   Here’s a sneak peak…

    These lottery homes are always beautiful show homes, but this one just might be a step above… just check out these incredible features.

    There really are too many features to see in a few dozen photos if you can believe that.  We haven’t even talked about the heated triple car garage, or the fully landscaped park-facing back yard!  Someone is going to win all this in March.  For all of us who don’t win, there are many other prizes to see on the lottery website.. cacaclottery.ca.  These include 2 vehicles, a $20,000 play centre, a $15,000 diamond ring, groceries for a year, and fuel for a year!  Cut off for the early bird cash prizes of $50,000, $25,000, and $10,000 is January 15th.

    There’s also a Split 50 draw with a minimum prize of $200,000 and a maxium payout of a half million dollars!  Cut off date for Split 50 and for the Dream Home Lottery is March 10, 2019.  Prizes will be drawn on March 27!  Who will win this incredible dream home?
