The sisters have known the family for 53 years, and Bella was the one to surprise the Murphy’s by announcing the news on Christmas Eve.
The Murphy’s bought a Langley City rancher a few years back, as a fixer-upper project, they were going to work on together. A few years later, their son died in the summer of 2016. This loss took its toll on their family. Through all this, Sandra has battled health issues for many years.
A few months ago, while travelling in the United States, Sandra took sick and ended up in the hospital with only 85 per cent of her heart working. Doctors did what they could to stabilize her, then airlifted her back to Canada.
Because of her declining health, Sandra recently lost both her feet and several of her fingers to amputation. Her husband Ken left his job to be at her bedside and to take care of her.
One of the major mandates for this year’s project will be to make the home wheelchair-accessible for Sandra.
