I am from Van Island and ran away when I was 14 ended up on the streets addicted. I have been on the streets for over 8 years and I am finally clean and sober but have a large hole in my throat to breathe and have to talk through a machine. I am still alive though and I am gratefull for that. I want to go back to work as a forklift operator but need steel toes for that. That would make me very happy and give me purpose as well. Thanks for all of your generosity and kindness
