In November 2014, Jim decided to leave a gift in his will to the IWK Foundation. This gift is in honour of Sam Jangaard, the son of a dear friend and IWK Foundation employee, Kim Farmer.

Leaving a legacy

Kim and Jim met 13 years ago through their love of running; they were members of a running team called Beauties and the Beast. During this time Kim’s son Sam, who was born July 7, 2002, was diagnosed with brain cancer and sadly passed away, on May 7, 2006, shortly before his fourth birthday. Being so close to Kim and her family, Jim was impacted by the life of this amazing little boy.

Jim remembers Sam as a bright, lively and cheerful boy who loved sports, especially swimming, golf and throwing a Frisbee. He loved music and being with his friends. Jim’s decision to leave a gift in his will to the IWK was a decision he made easily.

Being a cancer survivor myself, I welcome the opportunity of leaving a gift that will be directed toward the wonderful work being done at the IWK. - Jim Drover

Death is never easy for those left to grieve. By doing something positive for the IWK’s long-term future, Jim’s gift is a lasting tribute to a wonderful life honoured.

Excellence is in your hands.
