A Brentwood Bay woman who relied on support from her friends and community last year is intent on giving back.
Liza Glynn, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998, received chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency treatment, known as liberation treatment, in the spring of 2011. The treatment isn’t offered in Canada because it’s considered experimental. Glynn relied on her friends and members of the community to help cover the costs of travel to the U.S. and the cost of the treatment.
Glynn is now able to move more freely since the treatment and has set a goal with her son, Tenney, to help raise funds for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.
“I was very grateful for the kindness and support I received from the community before my surgery,” she said. “Now Tenney and I want to give back to the community who helped us and give to the people who need it.”
After raising funds, Glynn cut her hair on Saturday, Sept. 22 and will continue to accept donations for the cause until Thanksgiving (Oct. 8).
