Family of Alberta triplets with rare cancer is overwhelmed by Toronto support. Richard and Leslie Low desperately sought help from strangers in finding affordable accommodation.They wrote a blog post on Friday seeking inexpensive accommodations for a young family of six. By Sunday their website had been seen by more than 100,000 people and the couple had received 1,000 email responses and counting. The emails included discounted offers on vacation rentals, cut-rate corporate suites and even university dorm rooms. Still others offered up their own homes free of charge. Others offered food, diapers and emotional support.
Mississauga realtor Alvaro de la Terre was among the first to respond. He wants the Low family to reside in his four-bedroom home while he and his wife take care of the cooking and cleaning. He is even willing to drive them to and from Sick Kids Hospital where little Luke, Mason and Thomas Low have been coming for treatment.
