On August 16, 2018, Kailynn was airlifted by STARS from Weyburn to Regina General Hospital. If it had not been for STARS, Sandra truly believes she, and the rest of the family, would not have had that last week with Kailynn. Kailynn was announced as a STARS VIP at a fundraising dinner in Weyburn on April 9, 2019. In an interview, Sandra had this to say about STARS and what they had done for the family “Even though she was in a coma, I still had that week with her. STARS not only gave three people a chance at living, but I got a chance to say goodbye,” said Sandra. “This outcome is not what I wanted, but in the end, what STARS gave me was time.”
