The following is a letter to Shirley Bond, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General of British Columbia
Dear Ms. Bond,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My husband, David Jungquist, is a third generation horseman and my only child, James, is the fourth generation. This is the only business either one has ever known.
In October of 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had numerous surgeries, chemo, and radiation. My treatments and surgeries continued until January of this year. My family had to deal with the uncertainty and the lack of racing and income while dealing with my sickness. Neither my husband or son felt they could leave B.C. to race elsewhere while I needed their support.
I am happy to report that I am in remission and thrilled that there is someone in government that cares about the horsemen and the businesses in Cloverdale/Surrey who depend on us. I want to thank you, not just for my family, but for the horsemen and
businessmen who are my friends.
