The Story

Linda has recently had a tumor removed from her brain, and shortly thereafter was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain cancer, referred to as GLIOBLASTOMA. 
She is currently recovering from her first surgery and will soon be heading to Calgary for weeks of chemo and radiation treatments, after which she will be monitored and treated accordingly.
This is a difficult time for her and her family, not only as they come to terms with her diagnosis, but also as they will continue to take time off work and live away from home during her treatments.

The support and love that they have already received from the community has been immense and felt deeply in the hearts of this family.

It is our hope that this fundraising campaign will grant Linda and her family some peace of mind and help to ease the financial burden that diseases such as this so often inflict.
THANK YOU for anything you can do to HELP.

A Little More about Linda.....

Linda married her husband, Howie Burwell, on December 27, 2003 and they have made Cardston, Alberta their home. Together, they have 8 children and 17 beautiful grandchildren whom they love enjoying their spare time with. Linda is a teacher at the Cardston Elementary School and has been working there for 24 years, first as a grade 4 teacher, and now as a full-time music teacher.

She also conducts the best two children’s choirs in Canada: the Cardston Elementary Junior Choir, which consists of children from grades 2-3, and the Cardston Elementary Senior Choir, which consists of children from grades 4-6. These choirs work very hard which lead them to win their first National title in 2007, and since 2010 have won both Provincial and National titles every year. Due to her incredible service to her community, she was nominated as Cardston’s 2012 Citizen of the Year and was honored in their annual Heritage Day Parade in 2013.

There is no way I can describe how much Linda Burwell and her work with the children in the Cardston area have meant to all of our families, she has transformed all the children in the Cardston Elementary School to understand the Beauty of Music and how they each can have a part in making Beautiful Music together.  

Our children have loved singing with her and have a deeper love of music because of her.  

During her recent concert, they performed a song from Handel that included the lyrics "Art thou troubled? Music will calm thee, Music, source of all gladness,Heals thy sadness"

We are hoping that we can help Linda to be calmed during this time, with your help..
