Vale Lois Tasker

Lois was a wife, a mother and a woman who became inspired to found CIKA along with her husband, John, and two other couples after her daughter, Katie, died from cancer in 1976. Katie’s love of butterflies is commemorated in our logo. Lois passed away in October and several CIKA members attended her funeral on November 2nd.

CIKA was founded in April 1980 and we are greatly indebted to Lois and John,who died last year, and to the other families who had the vision to start this project.
