Angela Schuurman Cancer and Preemie Baby Support

At 24 weeks pregnant with their second child, Angela Schuurman was diagnosed with breast cancer. Under the care of an experienced multidisciplinary team, Angela will require surgery and chemotherapy as soon as possible. Her care team is recommending is to hold off delivery as long as possible, but their second baby girl will still be born prematurely. 


This GoFundMe campaign is for all of those near and far who wish to support Angela and Steve on this portion of their journey. These funds will assist them with all of the expenses Angela and Steve are going to incur with having a preemie baby and Angela undergoing treatment. Expenses such as parking, eating meals at the hospital cafeteria, medical expenses that are not fully or not covered at all by their insurance, and medical assistance devices during recovery. 


Angela has been involved in the Royal Canadian Air Cadet program for over 23 years, most recently as the Commanding Officer for 570 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron. She has led the unit through COVID-19, ensuring the cadets receive the best training while keeping the cadets engaged. Over the years Angela has held several positions within the organization such as Zone Training Officer for the Red Deer Region, Assistant Region Cadet Air Standards Officer, as well as many years as a glider pilot instructor at the Flying Training Centre in Gimli, MB. 


Angela has also been playing with the Clan McNaughton Pipes and Drums for the past 6 years, as a snare drummer. The community not-for-profit band plays in parades, community events, Remembrance Day services and annually at the Highland Gathering hosted by the Scottish Society. She is also the Secretary of the Board for her beloved band. 


Angela is also an avid curler and has been curling in the Saturday Fun League at the Shamrock Curling Club for the past 5 years. She has also curled at the last 9 Can-Midwest Bonspiels held annually in a different city across western Canada. 


Her day job with the Ronald McDonald House in Edmonton is the Volunteer and Program Manager where she manages the volunteer and program experience. Her position allows her to bring together her passion for community and support for  families with seriously ill or injured kids. 


Angela and Steve will celebrate 8 years of marriage this year, and are the proud parents to beautiful little Brenna who will be turning 3 in a few months.
