I wanted to share with you all how generous Anne-Marie’s family and friends, and our family and friends, have been with donations in Anne-Marie’s honour and memory. To date you have donated $1511.49 through the CJD Foundation, Saskatchewan Native Theatre Company and the Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation. I am also aware of donations that have been made to personal organizations you chose to honour Anne-Marie with, so there is even more money that I haven’t tracked. Thank-you so much for your continued emotional support, friendship and remembrance of Anne-Marie.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, please consider the following organizations. Each organization has asked that you indicate that your generosity is in Anne-Marie’s name.

CJD Foundation

The CJD Foundation provides support and information to friends and family affected by CJD.

University of California, San Francisco – Memory and Aging Centre

UCSF Memory and Aging Centre have research teams currently focusing on CJD research regarding causes and cures. Please specify that you would like your donation to go towards the CJD research by making checks payable to “CJD Research Fund” or “CJD Donor Fund” or indicating these specific funds when making a donation by cash or credit card.

Saskatchewan Native Theatre Company – Circle of Voices Program

The Circle of Voices Program is a youth empowerment program where theatre is used as a means to motivate youth-at-risk, or as the Program prefers, youth-with-potential. The theatre company is based in Saskatoon, although there are ties to the Battlefords through touring productions and local youth who have participated in the Program. Please contact the theatre at 306-933-2262 and indicate that you would like your donation to go towards the Circle of Voices Program.
