An effort is underway to help out Harold Wright, the well known Saint John historian, author and Heritage advocate who's seriously ill.
Wright is struggling with cancer for the second time in 8 years.
A Go Fund Me Page has been established to help pay his medical expenses not covered by insurance. The financial discrepency is causing great emotional stress.
The cancer has damaged his mouth, throat, teeth and gums. His dental bill is extremely high with no means to pay. He also needs new glasses but insurance does not cover all the cost.
Wright has been instrumental with projects that call attention to the legacy and sacrifice of veterans and knows more than just about anyone about the history of Partridge Island.
