A close relative of a Parksider has been involved in the fight of his life. Gary was playing soccer in Vernon when he suddenly passed out on the feild. He was flown from Kelowna to Vancouver where his family was told devastating news that he had suffered a major brain aneurysm. It has been a year living away from their home to be by his side and it has taken a huge toll on the family. Gary has a long and difficult road ahead of him and we would like to rally together to support him and his family.
