Giving with Heart – Rick’s Story
It was April 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic was rapidly advancing through our community. Like many others, Etobicoke resident Rick Davis was experiencing the effects of the virus firsthand. Earlier that month he had the heartbreaking experience of laying off half the staff at his events company, Rick Davis Promotions – the first time he’d ever had to do that in over 33 years of business.
Then on April 30th, he tragically lost his mother to COVID-19. It was an exceptionally stressful period for Rick and his family, and his own health fell to the wayside as he tried to balance personal and professional obligations.
It was right around this time Rick began feeling unwell. He chalked it up to stress at first, but as the hours ticked by he couldn’t shake the feeling that something was seriously wrong.
