TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH

Day Away

Day Away

Cancer can put a strain on more than just your health. Our Day Away Program gives people a day(s) to rejuvenate and spend time with loved ones without any extra burdens.

Write in and tell us about an individual or family you know that could benefit from time away. Often the financial hardships associated with a life threatening illness can make these experiences impossible.  We can create a suitable experience and can include, but isn’t limited to  a concert, hockey game, dinner out, spa day or time at the cabin.

Please ensure you have discussed sharing an individuals’ information before contacting us. If you are unsure on how to proceed simply call us or email us and we can discuss how the program works.  Proof of illness and financial information maybe required

Day Away – Jerry’s Gift

In honour of Jerry Maslowsky the Never Alone Foundation will host two suites at the Winnipeg Goldeyes each season and one at a Manitoba Moose game.


Jerry Maslowsky (1957-2016)

On September 3, 2016, Jerry passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from an aggressive form of esophageal cancer.

Jerry’s passion for helping others and giving back to the community will continue on through Jerry’s Gift. Jerry’s Gift will allow individuals, families and caregivers affected by cancer the opportunity to experience a break from everyday life by attending a memorable event. When cancer becomes your life, sometimes it’s about finding the small joys that can truly make a difference.

Anyone involved in the sports industry in Manitoba, knew the name Jerry Maslowsky. Jerry spent the majority of his career involved in high-level marketing and communications positions in Manitoba’s sports community.

Near the start of his career, Jerry worked closely on developing sales and marketing programs in conjunction with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Manitoba Moose, Winnipeg Goldeyes and the Winnipeg Jets where he was responsible for developing and implementing the “Save the Jets” Campaign in 1996. Jerry went on to a successful tenure as Vice President of Marketing for the 1999 Pan American Games; one of the most successful games to date thanks in part to his efforts.

Jerry spent the majority of his career as the Vice-President of Sales and Marketing with the Winnipeg Football Club, where he was introduced to Lyle Bauer and was involved in the development of the Never Alone Foundation. Jerry was a life-long Blue Bomber fan and had the opportunity to work his dream job for 15 seasons. He was committed to his team and regularly went above and beyond to help players, office staff, coaches and fans. Jerry was truly one-of-kind, inspiring hope, enriching lives and giving back to the community.

Testimonial

Just wanted to say thank you so much for allowing us to go to Fargo. We had a really good time and were able to do many of the things we had done on a previous trip with Rob. The other week Michael was telling me that a potential donor was asking what exactly you do and I have been thinking about that. My answer to him would be that the Never Alone allows cancer patients and their families to temporarily forget about the situation they are in to have some fun doing something they love and making memories. That is what the foundation had done for us. I will never forget the football games with Rob, especially the Grey Cup and his huge smile! And I cherish the time away last week with Isaac. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you do.

Thanks again!  Karen.
