Donation Support - Camren Fishenden
---To fellow Squash Alberta Members,
 Some of you may or may not be aware but one of our fellow squash players and a great ambassador to our sport, Camren Fishenden is currently healing from surgery, now going through tough rounds of chemotherapy, recovery, and hopes soon to be back on the court! 
For those of you who know Camren, we don’t have to say much as you have already experienced his awesome personality first hand, both on and off the court.  For those of you who don’t know Camren,  here is a little about him.  Camren has had a racquet in his hand since he was a child and has been involved daily in teaching/coaching and bettering the sport of squash for over 15 years. Recently Camren was the Pro at WCP but has been without work since the summer.  His wonderful and supportive wife Glory, is working 3 jobs to support the household through this trying time. 
Camren has done extensive work in developing junior players as well as adults.  He truly cares about his students and his members and is passionate about a positive attitude, safety and having fun.  Camren is truly a quality man that is always happy, supportive and brightens up any room/court. 
We hope that you can show some monetary support in any amount to help Camren and Glory get through these next few months and help them make their Christmas a little easier.   Please donate by December 14th, 2012.
To facilitate the fundraising a PayPal account has been setup.  To donate please click on the 'Donate to Cam and Glory' web link below. 
You can donate via VISA or your PayPal account.  If you don't have a PayPal account you can donate directly on your VISA without setting up an account.   If you need any assistance or have any questions you can call or email Leanne Forbes @ 403.261.5690 or lforbes@medialogic.ca

 We thank you in advance and greatly appreciate your support in this difficult time.
Friends of Cam and Glory

Further to Recovery from surgery, a note from Camren:

Recovery from surgery is going well. Unfortunately, the diagnosis following the surgery is Testicular cancer.
The Oncologist's team that is working with me is great and is getting on top of my treatment rapidly.
As of Monday, September 24 I will commence chemotherapy treatment for months to start. During this time
there will be occasions when squash sessions can be completed at a club that is convenient for you.

It is a long road ahead, the process is 60 months to full recovery. Your messages and kind words of support
are truly appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you on the squash court soon!
Yours Truly,
Squash Nation
