COVID-19 CHRONICLES

CANADA — Karma Tsewang Gyurmey is an ordained monk and lives with chronic pain. He’s a client of Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH). Before the COVID-19 pandemic reached North America, Karma was able to access a home caregiver three times a week. He relies on the visits to keep his living space clean and also to help him bathe himself. Because of his illness, he can only stand for short periods of time.

Background shareclose email Gary McPherson: pioneer for people with disabilities, visionary, executive, family man and everybody’s friend. Gary’s voice was a strong advocate of reason and negotiability. When Gary passed away in 2010, few people carried his vision on. Sadly, we see it today: people with disabilities are being overlooked and not being heard. Gary was a dear friend of mine who opened many doors for me since 1979. This site is now dedicated to Gary’s legacy. I am going to try — in my own voice — to carry on his legacy. But nobody did things like Gary. I miss you every day, my friend .
