Since Gabrielle is not here to celebrate her birthday with us this year, we decided there was no better
way to celebrate this day than to launch the foundation we started in her memory.
We believe she would have been so very proud to be associated with such a wonderful group of people working
to help families with brave kids like her during an extremely trying chapter in their lives.
We are very very grateful to the many people who made the launch a success.
Special thank you's go out to:

Coquitlam River Elementary staff, students and parents for supporting us in our endevours,
