  1. I received your email today about the upcoming service and will be happy to pass that on to the families receiving support through AHS at this time. I am wondering if you would be willing to add the AHS Perinatal Loss Support Group to your website. The group meets once a month at AHS: 33134 Marshall Road, Abbotsford and is facilitated by a counsellor. To register, people call me (Maryanne Balzer) at 604-852-2456.

  2. Thank you for this information, I will gladly pass it on to our families.
