A fundraising drive aims to help a UWindsor staff member whose five-year-old son is undergoing treatment for leukemia.
Alisa Giroux-Souilliere, social media coordinator in the Office of Public Affairs and Communications, and her husband Scott Souilliere have seen interruptions in their employment while they care for their son, Bentley. In addition, they have had to travel to London for the intensive treatment protocol, expected to last three years.
Now their family and friends are organizing to help lighten the load. A GoFundMe site seeking contributions has already raised more than $7,000, money which will allow the family offset the strain on its finances.
A benefit dinner, entitled “Bentley’s Road to Wellness,” is scheduled for October 23 at the restaurant MotorBurger.
