Linda Tenney has produced the magazine Eyes On BC (and the earlier Beacon) for the past 12 years from her home in Qualicum Bay. She has helped to define the communities in Lighthouse Country on Vancouver Island, while promoting local businesses and introducing us to interesting neighbours. She has helped countless community events with free advertising, focused articles, facebook photos and mentions on her regular radio spot and has supported community based initiatives in many forms with her coverage and presence.
Linda will be facing a major challenge with a cancer that has come back with a vengeance. She will have a great deal of out of pocket expenses with trips that will take her out of her community for chemo and other medical appointments. These expenses will include transportation and accommodation costs, extra costs for medication not covered by Pharmacare to quell nausea and other chemo side-affects, and any quality-of-life accessories that may be needed.
While we're all expecting Linda to survive her second 'journey', should her future offer a different scenario, she would like to visit the home of her ancestors, Kendal, Cumbria, England. She'd like to fill in the gaps of her family tree, a legacy project she's been working on for the past 20 years. The building at the bottom of the poster is the famous old church in Kendal, and the town itself holds centuries of information about her ancestors; a story waiting to be preserved for future generations of her family.
Linda has a blog at www.eyesonbc.com/blog for those wanting to know more details of her journey.
