Kayoko Okubo Prieur Memorial Education Fund

In September Kayoko was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. In March, things took a turn for the worse and she was admitted to the hospital. Finally, based on all the information provided, Kayoko decided to stop all treatments. Arrangements were made for her to return home to spend her time with her husband Paul and children Luca and Amélie.  

The twins meant the world to Kayoko and making memories with them was very important to her.  Reading and teaching the children was one of Kayoko’s favourite things to do with them. Please consider helping Paul and the kids  through this difficult time as they navigate this tragedy and move forward in life without Kayoko. Donations from this fund will be forwarded to Paul to be used for Luca and Amélie’s education.
