Jody Lewis and Adam Thorburn were married on Saturday August 17, 2013 in Winnipeg, MB. Canada in a beautiful backyard ceremony on a gorgeous summer day. 



Jody’s brother, Dan Lewis, had the honour of walking the bride down the aisle.

Dan was diagnosed with Churg Strauss Syndrome in March 2008. His illness/diagnosis stunned our family.  Although we have a wonderful specialist here in Winnipeg, we also found help and understanding in coping with this disease from the CSSA, Vasculitis Canada and International.

In lieu of the typical guest favours at a wedding, Jody and Adam chose to make a donation, in honour of each of their guests, to the CSSA.  They are pleased to present a sum of $700.00 (Canadian) to the CSSA to further assist with education, support, and research of Churg Strauss Syndrome, now also known as EGPA.

Our heartfelt thanks to Jane and John Dion for all of their help with providing materials for our fundraising efforts.
