"On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015, our lives were forever changed with the passing of our precious son, brother, grandson, cousin and friend.

Cameron was tragically killed in a car accident only a few minutes from home. In that moment the lives of all who knew and loved him were insurmountably devastated. He loved life. He loved making people laugh and feel connected to him. It is only right that we honour his passing trying to continue his connection to people.

While waiting for the news, three people appeared from the back of the ambulance. These were the Victim Services volunteers who had been called out to support our family during the notification. They were like angels arriving to support us in the most horrific of crisis. They stood with us for hours, supporting us in whatever way possible.

That evening on the highway, the pure devastation and loss was visceral. It was a bitter night and everyone around us was trying to find a way to keep us warm. In the following months I would recall that numbing cold and the emptiness we felt. With that in mind we started the Cozie 4 Bozie initiative. We want to provide blankets to Victims during their most traumatic time by wrapping them in a warm hug, letting them know someone was there with them.

Today we begin our Cozie4Bozie 2019 campaign. Our goal is 250 blankets this year to surpass the 200 blankets we were able to provide to Victim Services from last year’s campaign."
