As the song states, “We get by with a little help from our friends”

A dear friend in Nova Scotia needs our support. John Cook, a tireless advocate for medicinal cannabis and Director of the Halifax Outlet of the Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada, has had a heart attack. Unfortunately, the blockage is unable to be repaired surgically. John is also suffering from inflammation of the heart and fluid build-up around it (Pericarditis) which could last months. John is out of hospital, but faces a long recovery process at home. One of his medications is almost $100 a pill. While he recuperates, neither John nor his wife Krista, who has been by his side the entire time, can work and are unable to perform any of their normal
day to day activities.

It’s ironic that a man who has supported so many of us – through our pain and illness – is now the one in need of support.

Currently, the Cooks are struggling to keep their heads above water.

If we, as a community, could pool our resources, John and Krista and their two girls, Megan and Hannah, can get through this stressful time and focus on a full recovery.

A fund has been set up that will allow us to support the Cook family.

Contributions needn’t be large, because, as we all know, every little bit counts. We are hoping to help alleviate the financial burdens currently being faced by the Cooks. Contributions can be made at any TD
Bank across Canada. The account is in the name of Sharon Hebb, a close family friend and Godmother of Megan, who is spearheading this effort. The account number is 366390716 .

If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Hebb via e-mail at

Also, the Cooks believe strongly in the healing power of positive thoughts and wishes. If you would like to reach out to them, please send your messages to his wife, Krista Cook on Facebook.
