Thank You for 25 Years of Help and Service by John Ronald Chega*

I am writing this narrative to express my heart-felt gratitude and show those who are interested, the positive affects the Calgary Urban Project Society (CUPS) has had in my life, and in the lives of thousands like me.

CUPS is a charity that provides medical services to thousands of low-income men, women and children in Calgary. I cannot explain much about their family programs because I have been a handicapped homeless bachelor most of my 62 years. So this accounting will be concentrated on the support and services CUPS has provided to me, personally, over the past 25 years, since 1989 when I became seriously handicapped and homeless.
