Meeting with Canada Post

September 10, 2013

We are home, it has been a long day. We have lots of news about the last three days, but for this evening we will just give you an update on our meeting. Not only did we sit down with Jim Phillips (Director of Stamp Services) but he brought along Elia Anoia (Stamp Program Development). We would like to thank them both for taking the time to sit down with us.  We wish we could say our kids will be getting their stamp tomorrow but we cannot. Although Stephanie came out of the meeting a little upset, we feel the meeting went well overall. I think we may have opened their eyes a little to the struggles children that are diagnosed with cancer and their families face when it comes to huge gap in awareness and fair treatment regarding funding for research. They both listened to all we had to say, which of course included “we will not go away”. They accepted our new letters of support that we received from key community members, and correspondence we received from Buckingham Palace and the Federal Governor General’s office. They assured us they would table our new information for discussion and we would hear back. Stephanie doesn’t want journeys like her’s and Emilie’s to be for nothing. She has faith that there is more out there for tomorrow’s children……we just have to find it. She hopes when she does hear back, Canada Post will set a precedent in Canada and be part of it.
