100Brokers members voted and we’re very pleased to announce that we will be sending a cheque in the amount of $10,000 to Eddie Sandoval and his family.

Kelly Sandoval sacrificed her life selflessly to ensure the safety of her child.  She heroically threw herself in harm’s way and prevented their youngest son from being struck by a rampaging pickup truck.

Nomination Story: 
You may have read the headlines about my good friend Eddie Sandoval’s beloved wife Kelly. She heroically threw herself in harm’s way. She prevented their youngest son from being struck by a rampaging pickup.

“A mother of four boys has died after she was hit by a truck during a rampage in Maple Ridge on February 1st, 2018” . . . . . “The incident unfolded when police received a call about a black Dodge pickup truck near the McDonald’s at about 3pm.”

Sadly, Kelly died of complications from the accident. Their boys (ages 5, 10, 13 and 16) and Eddie miss her very much. Kelly was Eddie’s best friend, the love of his life and his business partner. He couldn’t have found a more loving and caring mother for their boys.

Eddie faces some daunting tasks ahead. He’s juggling to keep the boys engaged in their activities, while trying to manage his business alone. The two months that Kelly was fighting to regain her health, produced medical expenses and caused Eddie’s absence from their business. Eddie spends less time on the business and has to hire out for office administration. He also now has childcare costs for his younger boys.

The school-aged boys are dedicated honour students and great athletes! With your generous help, Eddie is determined to keep the boys focused on the path that Kelly and he proudly set them on.

As an independent man, it has taken much for Eddie to ask for help. However, the family truly need your compassionate support with financial assistance. Let’s pool together to aid this family in need and allow them to thrive.

This is a very difficult time for Eddie and his boys. He is incredibly grateful for the love and support of family, friends and the kind acts from strangers.

Thank you to Lana Russell for bringing this Cause to our attention and thanks to everyone who nominated a Cause this Quarter, we had so many great options to choose from.
