Victor Austin’s Honor Walk for Cancer from Vancouver to Prince George, BC

August 13, 2017 Leave a comment

Victor Austin is walking from Vancouver to Prince George, BC to raise awareness for Cancer Victims and to see his beloved father.

Donations are appreciated to support my Honor Walk for Cancer which are going to be used for food and lodging in my journey to see my Dad before his next surgery.

My email address for e-transfer is victoraustin2010 (@)

See more on the Facebook Event

I’m going to begin a journey to go see my Dad in Prince George BC Canada before his next and hopefully final cancer surgery on August 21st.

I’m doing this walk all Cancer victims.

Whether they are being treated for Cancer, or are Cancer survivors or for any frenz and familiez who have lost loved ones to cancer.

I invite you to be with me to help kick off my Honor Walk.

I’m hoping that a drum group can be there and someone can smudge me and anyone else at the kickoff. So I can have a safe journey back to my Dad.

My journey starts at my place and ends at University Hospital of Northern British Columbia in Prince George.

My Dad is already there getting medical treatment.

I will have about 766 km and one week to walk home to be with my Dad.

I am going solo and I am only going use what’s donated to me to sustain my journey.

Anyone wishing to donate to my journey can please e-transfer to my email at victoraustin2010(@)

I did this once before for a dear friend that I lost 5 months ago to Cancer.

I helped my friend Stephan get back to Winnipeg MB to be with his family in July 2015.

I had 20 cents to my name and left my fate in the Creator’s hands because once I got Stephen Pranteau home I would be on my own until my return flight.

The Creator took care of me the entire time I was there and I got to spend some good time with his family.

I did it cuz I love people and couldn’t stand seeing my friend not be with his family in his time of need.

So I know that the Creator will take care of me again on this new journey that I have decided to undertake.

The date for my departure is tentatively scheduled for Sunday but it could change to a bit earlier or later depending on how much support I can get before my journey.

I am in need some good walking shoes as all I have is formal dress clothes.

Some water bottles, non perishable food that I can put in my backpack. Power bank chargers so I can be sure to alwayz be accessible to everyone who will follow my journey on my blog that I made.

I am hoping that I can find some sponsors to help with logistics (food and lodging). So I can fully concentrate on jus walking.

I am hoping that there is two volunteers to accompany me with a mini van or truck.

I may be walking through some fire zones and if need to get out right away then we can do that.

One driver and one to document and update my blog

Please watch this event for updates and progress

SANSU Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’ I Fly So High PARODY of Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake

SANSU – Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’  “I Fly So High” Parody Video of Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake

We all may have a friend or family member who is in danger of losing their lives even to one episode of experimental drug use.

Dealers are putting Fentanyl and other powerful opiates into what some may call soft drugs (marijuana) to make it more potent thus making the user addicted.

SANSU’s Justin Timberlake parody has a serious message for the Provincial Emergency on substance users dying from Fentanyl overdose.

Please Watch and Share!

They are not statistics; this video shows they are real people!


Message in Video:

Surrey Area Network of Substance Users

“This is Not a Joke! We Are Dying.

Fentanyl, W-18
Naloxone Kits are becoming more and more Ineffective!

So we continue to dance and die!

Please support SANSU’s work”


Help! @Twitter gave our @April account away!

@April, @AprilFilms @AHAMEDIA are all back up! Thank you so much to our wonderful mentor @raincoaster and @TwitterCanada for all their great help! ♥ ♥



@April and @AprilFilms are now back online. Just waiting for everything to “recalibrate” once it was compromised.

Thank you @Twitter  Just waiting for @AHAMEDIA to be reactivated!



@AprilFilms, @AHAMEDIA, @April are now inactive – Hopefully @Twitter is working on fixing the problem that is affecting millions of other accounts that were hacked!


Imagine our surprise when logging into our @April to post about something very special.. a 1 year anniversary special of something very exciting when we found out that we COULD NOT log into it!! 😦

Cannot log in to @April

So we tried to input our email as a means of verification and still we were not able to access it!

omg april been hacked hard

We noticed with great shock that our @April account that we had registered since 2008, 8 years ago was suddenly taken over by someone, something!!!!

April not hers

Immediately we informed @Twitter  what happened!!

Our precious @April account was given away! HELP!!!

april to do


Apparently we were sent a reactivation email to resurrect our @April @Twitter account on Aug 6 2016 but we never authorized it at all!  Our @April account was never dormant and was previously accessed only two weeks ago approximately. (We have been busy filming out in the streets)

april hacked

Puzzled by this, we turned to our great mentor in social media @raincoaster for advice and we are very much hoping that we will get our @April @twitter handle back. We registered our @April @Twitter handle back in 2008 and we used our @April @twitter handle to showcase our hard work in community engagement of Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Help! @Twitter gave our @April account away!

“Dear @Twitter, Please give us back our @April @Twitter account back! Thank you!”

Please share and Retweet!

Thank you!!!!
