While I was in treatment, I continued to experience a lack of support from VAC. They would not support my goal to attend Simon Fraser University. I was warned that all funding would stop if I drank again and it was suggested to me that I wait a year before pursuing any education to ensure I was truly sober.

The tone and attitude of VAC’s warnings, threats, and discouragement was not the support I needed from them. I have decided to press forward with my educational goals regardless of any VAC contribution. I hope to be reimbursed later, however I have spent enough time idle under undelivered VAC promises and programs. My life must move forward, and it must move forward now.

I am now approaching 7-months sober, and I am 86 pounds lighter today.
