news

EMC news - After months of setbacks, being discharged from the hospital five days early was a huge victory for Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais following his Jan. 6 heart attack. The 32-year-old couldn’t stay idle in his last day at the rehabilitation centre at the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus. Rocking the wheels of his wheelchair back and forth, Blais waited impatiently for his final spin on a cross-trainer on April 30. The next day, Blais packed his bag and was discharged. A month ago, he couldn’t stand. As the councillor reflected about his recovery on his final day at the rehab centre, even he found it difficult to fathom how close he came to death. “They had gotten down to the last minute when they were going to shut it off.” Blais broke down in tears as he spoke of medics’ efforts to resuscitate him at the Montfort Hospital.

Dialysis beds at Résidence St. Louis first for Ontario Program to come to long-term care home Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - An Orléans long-term care facility will be the first in the province to specialize in dialysis care, adding six beds dedicated to dialysis patients in June. Patients in the program at Résidence St. Louis will be able to receive dialysis treatment overnight, in their own beds, instead of making frequent trips to the hospital. “You get to do it overnight as you’re sleeping, and then you’re fine, you’re good to go,” said Simon Akinsulie, director of long-term care for Bryère Continuing Care. “It eliminates the time you’d typically be in a dialysis place, wasting time.” Typically, dialysis patients, who suffer from kidney disease, have to travel to the hospital at least several times a week, to be hooked up to a dialysis machine before they can return home. Peritoneal dialysis will be offered for the six beds at the residence, which means a tube will be hooked up through the abdomen and work overnight through an automated system. Currently, there is nowhere in the health

care authority’s Eastern Ontario jurisdiction where residents can live in a care facility and have dialysis without going to the hospital. The facility will be the first long-term care home in Ontario to have the specialized designation, Akinsulie said. “Now they can just stay here, and stay in their home. It’s a huge difference for residents,” Akinsulie said. “It’s a far improved quality of life.” There is a cost to be in long-term care, but there will be no additional cost for the dialysis beds. The program is funded through the provincial and federal governments and a partnership between the Local Health Integration Network and the Ottawa Hospital. The residence is a francophone home, but Akinsulie said that services can be provided in English as well. Dialysis patients will be accepted based on referrals to the Community Care Access Centre, using the same referral process used for access into any of the longterm care facilities. Akinsulie said he hopes that the innovative program will eventually expand into other long term care facilities throughout the province. Community Care Access Centres can be reached by calling 310-2222, a universal number from anywhere in the province.

Living on less than $2 a day Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Rice, rice and more rice. That’s what’s on the menu for Live Below the Line participants, all of whom are living on $1.75 a day for five days. From April 29 to May 2, 25 Ottawa volunteers took part in a challenge to compare their lives to the 1.4 billion people across the world living in extreme poverty. Those people don’t just need to pay for their food, but housing, transportation, clothing and everything else with $1.75 or less each day. “Hungry,� is the only word Meaghan Derynck needed to describe the challenge. She said the hardest part of the project has been giving up coffee and all snacks – which she forgot to budget for when spending her $8.75 for the week. The project raises money for Cuso International, Results Canada, Raising the Village and Spread the Net. The 25 Ottawa participants join about 100 others across Canada who are collecting pledges as they complete the challenge. Ariane Cartwright, a Results Canada employee, said a typical day for her meal plan included oatmeal with a third of a shredded apple for breakfast, plain rice with chick peas and split peas for lunch, and frozen mixed vegetables with potato for lunch. “We reached our (fundraising) goal of $25,000, but yeah – we’re hungry,� Cartwright said. “Not belly-aching hungry, but hungry. You don’t have the steam to really make it to 5:30 at work.� She estimated with food, drink and meals

out, the average Canadian spends about $75 to $100 a week. The participating Results Canada employees teamed up to shop at a bargain grocery store, splitting up $35 of food between six of them. The shopping list included economy sized frozen vegetables, rice, and oatmeal. OrlĂŠans resident Kate Alexander said it’s been a struggle preparing food for her children and then eating her own smaller portion. She said her serving is comparable to many developing areas where the wealthy may have an excess of food, but their poor neighbours much less. “There’s enough food to go around, but not everyone gets it,â€? she said. On May 1, participants and guests were invited to a lunch at The Hub in downtown Ottawa where Lunch restaurant owner Tim Van Dyke came prepared with 55-cent meals. Van Dyke said staff had to shop around at bargain grocery stores and Chinatown shops in order to make a day’s worth of meals come in at less than $1.75. For lunch, they prepared meat dumplings, made with eight wonton wrappers (eight cents), a third of an Italian sausage (28 cents) and half a tomato (19 cents). Participants intensely debated the meat or vegetable wontons because of the vegetable and cheese in the latter, there were seven wontons instead of eight; a big difference for the hungry bellies. With the $25,000 fundraising goal already BRIER DODGE/METROLAND reached, the Canadian participants said they Live Below the Line participant Meaghan Derynck couldn’t wait to take a bite of her would push to raise even more money before 55-cent lunch at The Hub on May 1. She is one of the Live Below the Line participants they complete the challenge. across Canada living on a $1.75 a day food allowance for five days.

Open doors, they will come

B

aseball continues to flounder at Ottawa Stadium. Pity the poor fan awaiting the opening pitch of a new season. The sun is shining, the fans are ready, but there’s no team on the field. The stop-start process of trying to snag a AAclass team for Ottawa Stadium has been frustrating. City staff once proposed condominiums for the parking lot, but that was shot down because fans might need somewhere to park once a AA team gets here. In negotiations to bring a high level of baseball back to Ottawa, teams have thrown the city a few curveballs. So far the Ottawa has whiffed. The Fat Cats of the Intercounty Baseball League were kicked out of the stadium because the city wanted to renovate prior to the arrival of AA ball. Now that AA is guaranteed to miss the 2013 season, the eviction has proved unnecessary. People went to see the Fat Cats. They were family oriented, with low ticket prices and the highest attendance numbers in the league. Forcing the team out prior to a AA deal being finalized now seems like the wrong move. We’re left with a wonderful site and no team. The earliest we will see a AA team – or any pro

baseball at all – will be the 2014 season. It means a whole summer will go by with an empty park. Surely the city would have enough advance notice of the pending arrival of a AA team to get the place fixed up. The negotiations to get a new team to Ottawa have been a mystery. It’s understandable that there will be a period of secrecy during active negotiations to bring a new team here, but there must be some clue if an upcoming season is going to happen or not. With no pro team this summer – and no renovations planned in the short term – the gates of Ottawa Stadium should be thrown open for the community to enjoy. Former Fat Cats general manager Duncan MacDonald has proposed the park could host family events, men’s leagues and Little League baseball this summer. He’s willing to co-ordinate the process, providing turn-key service to the city. It’s a proposal worth considering but the city has said no. The stadium is paid for with residents’ tax dollars; who better to round the bases than the city’s own ball players? There’s only one answer to MacDonald’s proposal: play ball!

f it’s your birthday and you make the proper phone calls, you and some friends can ride in the pace car at Rideau Carleton Raceway. It’s pretty good to be one of those friends. The car, a big Cadillac limousine with a wide metal gate attached to the rear, drives along ahead of the horses. A man in back controls the gate and, in the initial stages, also controls the accelerator. When he accelerates and swings back the gate, the driver in front takes over, the race begins and you in the birthday group, facing sideways, get to watch the race up close, hearing the sounds and feeling the speed -- even if you see a bit more than you might want to of the drivers’ encouragement of the horses. You get let off beside the winner’s circle where the happy owner waits. Then you walk back into the building and up to the restaurant area where people enjoy the buffet and place bets at their table. If you play your cards right, to mix a metaphor, you can have a nice meal and only lose a few dollars on the horses. You can tell, as you wander over for a second dessert, that most of the people are enjoying themselves. They holler encourage-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town ment to the horses, whose progress is also visible on TV screens around the room, and in between races chat cheerfully with their table mates. To enter the restaurant from the parking lot you first have to walk through the slots area. It is brightly lit with lights flashing on the machines which produce a bonging noise that, put together, sounds like music. As an aside, the intriguing thing is that the machines are all in tune. Somebody must have to make sure the slot machines are not flat or sharp — another modern-day occupation. But we digress. Aside from the bonging and flashing, the most noteworthy characteristic of the casino is that no one is smiling or laughing in it. I have walked through Published weekly by:

this room many times on the way into the track and I have never seen anyone laughing or smiling. I see people sitting or standing solemnly in front of their chosen machines, methodically feeding money into them and waiting gloomily for money to come out. From there, walking into the restaurant and the sight of the race track is like walking into the light. The paradoxical thing about this is it’s still gambling, whether you’re betting on a horse or a machine. But it feels different. To bet on a horse, you may scan the racing form and other available information for clues -- what did the horse do in the last race, did it start strongly and fade or did it move up in the late stages of the race; who are its owners, its driver; what are the odds, who are the handicappers picking? Or you might just decide you like the horse’s name. Two dollars on Stanley Cup to win. Somehow going through the process makes you feel like you have a stake in the outcome, and if you win, it is a testament to your skill. If you lose, well it’s only $2. This helps keep you smiling, while you return once again to the dessert table. On you way out, after emerging from the

noisy gloom of the slots area, you scan some petitions from the horse racing and breeding industry, who feel rightfully threatened by the Ontario government’s plans to introduce more big casinos and end the lottery commission’s partnership with the race tracks. According to the industry, tens of thousands of jobs are at stake. Now, it’s unfortunate that the racing industry needs the slots to support itself, but if the choice is between keeping the track going and constructing another gleaming palace of gloom, it’s not difficult to know which one to cheer.

Make the best of the Election run in 2014 sure thing: Blais changes to your CPP Continued from page 1

EMC news - The Canada Pension Plan has embarked on a series of changes that may cause you to rethink when to begin receiving your CPP pension benefits. The amendments are intended to provide more financial flexibility depending on each individual’s chosen retirement path and to encourage Canadians to work longer before starting to draw a government pension. That’s why these changes provide greater incentives for those willing to work past the traditional retirement age and significant reductions for those taking CPP benefits before age 65. Dave Ablett, pension expert at Investors Group, says the new rules make it more attractive to delay receipt of your CPP benefits – but only if: your health is good: your life expectancy above average; you have a reasonable income and/or you intend to continue working after 65. He says you should consider taking your CPP benefits earlier if: your life expec-

tancy is below average; you have an illness that doesn’t qualify for CPP disability; you have little or no other income or you are permanently unemployed. Ablett says there are other changes you should know about: • The work cessation rule has been eliminated. Now, starting at age 60, you can continue working and still receive CPP benefits. • The earnings drop-out provision has been changed. Under the old rules, if you retired at age 65, you could drop out seven of your lowest earning years from age 18 to 65 when you were eligible to contribute to CPP. Now, that drop-out period has increased to 7.5 years and will increase again, to eight years, in 2014. More information on this topic is available from the Investors Group, or contact a financial advisor to get specific advice about your circumstances. News Canada

Web Poll THIS WEEK’S POLL QUESTION:

What do you think the city should do with its empty Ottawa Stadium?

A) Use it to host Little League baseball and men’s league and family events. B) Use the hiatus of no professional baseball to renvoate the stadium and fix up the surrounding area. C) Explore the possibliity of using space, such as the parking lot, for development. D) Not a thing. Just wait for the return of AA baseball, hopefully next season.

The fact that he even made it to the hospital was a miracle, Blais said. Doctors told him one of his arteries was likely 100 per cent blocked when he collapsed at the GoodLife Fitness in Place D’Orléans that day. But since he was at a gym, staff trained to deal with those situations sprung into action. An ambulance happened to be parked in the mall’s parking lot. It brought him to Montfort Hospital, where the head of cardiology, Dr. Chamoun, was doing a rare stint in the emergency room that day. That decision saved his life, Blais said. “All the dominoes that could possibly fall into place did at the right moment,” Blais said. Doctors chalked the heart attack at such a young age up to genes, Blais said. Both his grandfathers had multiple heart attacks, but Blais himself had no warning signs that something was amiss. He was tired and he had begun working out with a personal trainer five months before the heart attack in order to drop a few pounds, but there was nothing out of the ordinary, he said. “When you’re 30, you don’t think you need an EKG (electrocardiogram) on a regular basis,” he said. In the rush to save his life by inserting three stents to reopen his artery, Blais’s femoral nerve was crushed, rendering his right leg immobile. Doctors didn’t realize what had happened for a long time because Blais was confined to a hospital bed with a severe case of pneumonia just days after emerging from a medically induced coma. But the painful pins-andneedles sensation Blais now lives with proves that his nerve is regenerating and doctors believe he’ll have almost full function of his right leg by the end of the year. Until then, he’ll keep walking with a leg brace

and a cane. The spectre of brain damage was a very real threat, said the councillor’s wife, Marta Blais. Doctors weren’t sure how long oxygen was cut off from Blais’ brain. But when he awoke and began pulling at cables he was connected to and writing “H20” on paper to ask for a drink of water, Marta said she knew he would be OK. “It’s a second lease on life,” Blais said. “Ninety-nine per cent of people would have died with what happened to me.” MISSING HIS SON

Blais can already walk distances of up to a kilometre, but he is a ways off from running after his three-year-old son, Stephen Jr. A three-year-old has a tough time understanding something like a heart attack. When Marta explained to her son what happened to his dad, she said he had a broken heart. “He asked, ‘Do I have a broken heart, too?’” Marta said. The Blais family was set to move into their new Cumberland Ward home in the Chaperal community when Blais had the heart attack. Now, he is looking forward to sitting on his new porch with something to drink and a newspaper in his hands. “I’ve just been reading the news on my phone,” he said. “Just touching a newspaper and reading it will feel good.” Blais has been able to test out his new home on the weekends since Easter, when doctors allowed him to spend the night away from the rehab centre for the first time. “I needed to be home,” an emotional Blais said as he described watching his son hunt for Easter eggs. Support from members of his community – many of whom he has never met – touched Blais. “A tremendous thank you for their encouragement, sup-

Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais has taken a new lease on life after surviving a heart attack last January. port and patience,” he said. COUNCIL LIFE

It wasn’t long after he moved out of intensive care in March that Blais began to dip his toes back into the waters of city hall. The first-term councillor is beyond grateful for the efforts of his office staff in his absence. He’ll be leaning on them more than he used to when he returns to city hall, Blais said. “Part of my learning process is how better to delegate to my staff,” he said. “I’m learning how to have a better balance.” Attending community barbeques, reading reports and having a coffee with concerned constituents doesn’t really feel like work, Blais said. But he is learning that all parts of the job take energy and focus and can cause stress. Blais was hoping to make an

appearance at a recent city hall committee meeting on a code of conduct for council members, be he watched it on TV instead. “More than one person came in and asked me if it was that boring a day that this was the only thing on,” Blais said with a laugh. The councillor hopes to make it to a few committee meetings before the summer break and he’s targeting the fall – when his son returns to school – for when he might be up to returning as a regular fixture at city hall. Beyond that, Blais is taking it one step at a time. It’s not the best-kept secret in town that more than one political party has approached him about running for higher political office, and Blais isn’t ruling anything out. But seeking re-election as Cumberland councillor in 2014 is a sure bet, he said. As is putting his family first.

PREVIOUS POLL SUMMARY:

Do you think a tunnel beneath Richmond Road is the best route for the western branch of the LRT?

A) Yes. It is the optimum route and the underground track will cause the least disruption to the community.

33%

B) No. Carling Avenue presents a much better option for light rail.

17%

C) No. The city needs to make a deal with the NCC so the tracks can go down the river parkway.

50%

D) I don’t even take transit, so I could care less where it runs.

OrlĂŠans News EMC - Thursday, May 9, 2013

EMC news - From those who package first aid kits for soccer teams to the people who plan entire summer camp curriculums OrlĂŠans wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the same place without volunteers. There are 297 organizations in OrlĂŠans that rely on volunteers. During a special conclusion to Volunteer Appreciation Week, 62 Heart of Gold awards were handed out on April 26 by Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MP Royal Galipeau, whose office runs the annual event. Several of the awards were given to a couple or family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as Abiola, Bashiru and Mojisola Agoro who were recognized for founding the Dapo Agoro Foundation for Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give back, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same smiles you do,â&#x20AC;? Galipeau said to the recipients. The evening was hosted by master of ceremonies George Pappas, and included a speech from Carlsbad Springs Community Association president Denis Labreche. Labreche said he was inspired to volunteer by his grandfather, who tended to a local cemetery for years until his death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found myself volunteering without realizing I was volunteering,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to be something that is part of you, not something that is being forced on

you. Being a volunteer has to come from the heart.â&#x20AC;? The different organizations in OrlĂŠans that rely on volunteers were invited to submit a candidate for the Heart of Gold awards to Galipeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, who then honoured the recipients with a special certificate in a ceremony at the OrlĂŠans Legion.

It has to be something that is part of you. DENIS LABRECHE

Galipeau said the goal of the awards is to recognize some of the volunteers who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always honoured. Awards were given out for arts and culture, businesses serving the community, community associations, older citizens serving, service clubs, and serving: the community, elementary schools, secondary schools, guides and scouts, health and well-being, places of worship, resource centres, sports and troops and veterans. The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee winners that came from community nominations and received their awards at the House of Commons this winter were also recognized for their work in the community.

Alcohol, drugs traps for homeless: veteran The group has visited the Ottawa Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope shelters to serve lunch on two occasions. Soldiers Helping Soldiers members identify themselves as Canadian Forces through markings on their aprons. Eldridge is hoping this subtle action will open a door for veterans living on the margins. Offering a sense of belonging and an opportunity to reconnect with a community they identify with can be a way in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first step in guiding them along the path to accessing the right services that are going to make a difference for them, Eldridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a way of bringing them back,â&#x20AC;? he said. There is no way to know how many homeless people in Ottawa are former Canadian Forces members, said Dave Gordon, executive director of the Ontario command of the Royal Canadian Legion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We often get the question, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How many homeless veterans are there in Canada?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always say, how many snowflakes fell in the last snowstorm? I have no idea.â&#x20AC;? Eldridge said he was surprised that any veterans identified themselves during Soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Helping Solidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first two shelter visits. He said there is no way to esti-

mate the scope of the issue in Ottawa, but he guessed there may be in the neighbourhood of 100 homeless veterans in the city. The issues they face and the conditions that led to them ending up on the streets are the same as the issues faced by any person who becomes homeless, Eldridge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This story doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear a uniform,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about their military service.â&#x20AC;? Addiction is an issue and alcohol abuse is easy to fall into when there are few distractions on a military base, Eldridge said. But addiction is a common thread for many people who become homeless, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I doubt very much that the circumstances in the military are very different than anywhere else,â&#x20AC;? he said. A lack of transferable job skills can lead to a downward spiral for anyone, Eldridge said. When their career experience amounts to â&#x20AC;&#x153;combat,â&#x20AC;? it makes sense that some veterans canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find work after they complete their service. By the time they reach that stage, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve completely forgotten the information they received â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thought they would never need â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while they were in the military, Eldridge said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Eldridge can connect with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see your brothers-in-arms on the street â&#x20AC;Ś you

Retired Royal Canadian Navy captain and Blackburn Hamlet resident Mark Eldridge has created a group called Soldiers Helping Soldiers after a chance meeting with homeless veterans last fall. have to do something about it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The underlying issue is that agencies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asking the question,â&#x20AC;? Eldridge said. After his talk, Eldridge was flooded with questions from people representing service providers who admitted they never thought to ask if someone served in the Canadian Forces. But all of them said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a practice theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d now adopt. At the networking event, Eldridge was shocked at how many organizations are available to as-

sist veterans and others who are living on the streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a dozen business cards from organizations Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of before and another dozen from organizations Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a connection.â&#x20AC;? Continuing to build that network is a priority, as is connecting with veterans in need. People looking for a way to connect a homeless or at-risk veteran with the proper services can email Eldridge at markeldridge_12529@hotmail.com.

Mother’s Day is about looking good and feeling great from the inside out!

The importance of strength training: § Develop strong bones – strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. § Control your weight – as you gain muscle, your body will burn calories more efficiently – which can result in weight loss. § Reduce your risk of injury – building muscle helps protect your joints from injury. It can also contribute to better balance, which can assist in maintaining your independence as you age. § Boost stamina – as you get stronger, you won’t fatigue as easily. § Manage chronic conditions – strength training can reduce symptoms and signs of many chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, depression, diabetes and osteoporosis. § Sharpen your focus – some research suggests that regular strength training helps improve attention for older adults.

Begin her morning with a cup of warm water and the juice of half of a lemon to wake up the digestion. Save the other half of the lemon to make an awakening hot towel by mixing hot water with the juice of the other half of the lemon. Lemon is a natural astringent and will leave her skin feeling fresh, clean and glowing. Then treat Mom to a refreshing bowl of quinoa with berries and lemon zest. The high fibre helps to balance blood sugar and helps collagen production to keep her skin glowing and healthy.

Each day marked with special chores

M

y sister Audrey said she was tired of the same old routine day in and day out. Since I was so very young when she made this comment, I had no idea what routine was. So I asked Audrey to print the word in my scribbler and say what the word meant. Even at that early age I was very interested in words and kept a record in a fat scribbler whenever I heard one I hadn’t heard before. My scribbler was getting quite thick and even though I went over it often, I would forget what a word meant and Audrey would have to explain it to me all over again, which didn’t please her in the least. Well, Audrey could say what she liked about routine and how bored she was with it, but I liked how our lives on the farm were so orderly, and as far as I was concerned I wanted nothing to change. Every Monday morning, our beds didn’t have to be made up because that was the day the sheets were stripped and Mother did the washing. It didn’t matter if the snow was coming down in buckets, or it

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories was raining so hard you could barely see the barns, Monday was wash day. I knew that on Monday night there would be fresh sheets on our beds, taken right off the clothes line and smelling of spring and the outdoors. That night, I didn’t mind in the least going to bed. Every Tuesday when we came from school, we could smell in the kitchen the scent of newly ironed clothes. Shirts would be draped over chairs, tea towels stacked neatly in a pile on the kitchen table ready to be put in the drawer in the back-to-the-wall cupboard. Even our pinny aprons would be ironed and hanging on the hook by the stove. Without fail, Tuesday was the day the ironing was done. At mealtimes, things never varied. Breakfast was the very

same every morning: big bowls of porridge, fried potatoes, back bacon and thick slices of homemade bread slathered with butter and jam. Dinner was always at noon -- there was no such thing as lunch in the middle of the day. The routine of mid-day dinner never varied. Father expected, and got, meat, potatoes, one or two different vegetables and an ample piece of homemade pie. After all, his work had begun at dawn, and even though his breakfast was ample, by noon it had worn off and he was more than ready for what he called “a decent meal.” The routine continued at supper: meat and potatoes, but dessert would be preserves. We never went to bed without something to tide us over to morning. I couldn’t imagine

this routine being broken. This was all part of our life on the farm. Friday night was always the time to get ready for peddling Mother’s wares in Renfrew the next day. There was a regular routine that never varied as long as we lived in Northcote and was one of my favourite evenings in the entire week. Audrey and I would gather the eggs from the hen house. Audrey would wash them in warm soapy water and I would dry them with a clean flour bag tea towel. Mother would weigh them into their sizes on the egg scale -- small, medium and large -- and we would carefully pack them into 11-quart baskets. Mother’s sticky buns would be wrapped in wax paper, freshly plucked chickens singed and laid out on the bake table on a clean white sheet, ready to be packed in the Model T in the morning. Then every Saturday without fail, Mother headed into Renfrew to go door-to-door with what we had prepared the night before. See SATURDAY, page 20

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

home is

wherever you make memories to treasure.

OSU Player Kris Twardek becomes 1st Ottawa Player to sign with Pro Club in England Kris Twardek has struck the biggest goal in his career yet. The Ottawa South United (OSU) striker is no stranger to filling the net locally, and now he’s set to try his luck in England as a member of Championship side Millwall FC’s youth academy based in London. “It’s like the start to a dream come true,” reflects the Grade 10 Arnprior District High School student, who was introduced to OSU from the West Carleton Soccer Club when he was nine, in order to get the best possible soccer training available in Ottawa “I’ve always wanted to play soccer in a professional environment and this was an opportunity to do it. I’m thrilled.” Twardek went for a “nerve-racking” one-week try-out with Millwall back in November. Building on his experience from previous trials with Everton FC, the OSU player of eight years, made an impression in a hurry, scoring “more than I’m used to when I go overseas” during game action with the club.

BOOK YOUR TOUR TODAY. Lunch is on us!

Millwall, who recently reached the FA Cup semis against Wigan FC, told Twardek they were interested in him before he left, details were ironed out with Kris his family and OSU, over the winter, and he’s now set to officially spend the next two years in southeast London once he arrives in June. Twardek, who will stay in a billet home with another teammate, had a peek at what his training schedule will look like and immediately felt energized. “It’s basically soccer all the time. That’s all you can ask for, really,” smiles Twardek, who’s headed to one of London’s dozen-plus pro clubs. “The atmosphere for soccer there, you couldn’t even compare it, I would say, to the hockey here. It means everything, for everybody.” Club ‘proud’ of model player OSU club head coach Paul Harris says it’s Twardek’s personality and mental edge that really makes him the full package, on top of tactical awareness, physique and the technical prowess that makes the standout dribbler an “exciting” player. “We’re delighted for Kris,” Harris signals. “To get a player from Ottawa, Canada – not a well-known football environment – to a professional environment in England is obviously something we’re really, really proud of and will firmly put OSU on the map as development club overseas.” Bill Michalopulos, OSU club President, added that “Kris’s achievement personifies all the hard work and exclusive networks that OSU has generated over OSU’s relatively short time in existence as a soccer club in order to provide the very best opportunities possible for OSU players on a global level and that all of 6,500 player strong OSU is proud of this milestone”. Jim Lianos the club’s General Manager stated that “Kris’s hard work and positive attitude for continuous improvement gave him the edge required to be seen and promoted by OSU at such high levels. It could not happen to a nicer kid” Twardek will become the first OSU product to sign with a pro academy overseas, on the heels of two other OSU Force Academy players recently joining Major League Soccer clubs in Toronto and Montreal. Harris, the former Everton FC youth academy coach, who also trained such players as Manchester City’s Jack Radwell and England’s U21 Ross Barkley, said that “We think that maybe we’ve got the players at a young age who now have this role model and will later be able to go on to this level.” Goodbye to ‘best friends’ The downside of joining Millwall, Twardek states, is that he’ll be leaving the club that’s provided him with so many opportunities, such as competing at the Gothia Cup in Sweden with OSU’s affiliate club from Dallas, winning the Robbie International Soccer Tournament and the Disney College Showcase with OSU, and finishing second in the Ontario Youth Soccer League this past summer. “It’s been a journey with OSU Force97’s team and OSU. It doesn’t really stop here, but I mean, I’m leaving,” Twardek sighs. “The whole team is like my best friends. We’ve had lots of success together and we’ve had bad times together too. The team and OSU is like a family and we’re all brothers.

Alive and striving A group of Orleans friends prepare to run a five kilometre race as part of the Alive to Strive fundraiser for the Kidney Foundation on April 28. Gary MacKenzie, left, was diagnosed with cancer of the kidney 10 years ago and had to have it removed. He said he wants to support the Kidney Foundation’s work, and brought his wife Suzanne Chartrand-MacKenzie, front right, with him for the run. John Joanisse, far right, is also affected by kidney disease as the attending physician to the Residence Saint-Louis nursing home in Orleans, where six new dialysis beds are going to be installed so residents can undergo their treatments without leaving home. Joanisse ran the 10 km race.

Celebrating Children and Youth in Care On May 14th, 2013 join the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) in supporting Children and Youth in Care Day. This month, we are celebrating the strength and resilience of the approximately 700 children and youth in care. CASO becomes involved with families in the community when there may be a concern that a child or youth is at risk of abuse or neglect. Some of them are removed from their homes for a short period of time until circumstances are improved, some remain in care on an extended basis, and still others are adopted into new families. While their life paths are different than those of their peers, they face many of the same hurdles and challenges, and share the same hopes and dreams. We recognize the bravery and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity. The strength they have developed is admirable.

Saturday was for butter churning Continued from page 16

Perhaps this was why Audrey complained so much about the routine: she was usually left at home to clean the house, while I was allowed to go with Mother. But that didn’t mean I was spared from Saturday chores. When we got back to the farm,

it was my job to churn the butter in the middle of the kitchen. Wrapped in a long white pinny and sitting on a straight-back chair, I plunged the round wood disc into the fresh cream, waiting for the change in the sound coming from deep in the churn, when I would know that my labour had paid off, and soon there would be butter. Saturday

was butter day and that never varied. Saturday was also bake day. Bread would be ready for the oven by the time we got back from Renfrew, pie crusts would be filled and as always a slab cake would be at the ready just in case neighbours dropped in for a game of euchre that night. Every night, without fail, we

had our prayers. They were said on our knees around Mother who sat in the rocking chair in the corner of the big upstairs hall, which my sister Audrey and I called our bedroom. Our prayers never varied either. Sometimes we prayed so long, I would doze off with my head on Mother’s knee. Another day would be done, another day, just like the one before it, marked with its special chores, and Audrey would lament again about the boredom of it all.

Check out what’s happening:

Capital Muse been difficult to abandon. (I’ve tried twice already). To reduce expectations, I thought it best to lay all my cards on the table. I emailed the priest, whom I’d never met: “I’d like to talk to you about having my daughter baptised, but I don’t want to be pressured to return to church life.” Surprisingly, he agreed to meet. We went to Starbucks - good, neutral territory -- and talked for an hour. We got along very well. He’s the same age as me. He’s got a wife and four kids. He’s a writer. He likes to talk politics. We have stuff in common. So much, in fact, that we were 59 minutes into our hour-long meeting before the subject of church even came up. Even then, all he did was offer a simple analogy about church-going and kickboxing (yes, he’s a kickboxing priest - cool, huh?). The message was “sometimes it’s hard to get to NEWbut once you’re church/gym, LS and you reRIVA there AR it feels great alize how much you need it in 10mm your life.” AC-3 34 Subtle$1enough to get me through the doors the following mm 12 Sunday. was ial no underlymmerc CoThere $ ing pressure. 199In fact, he didn’t even extend me an invitation. 10mm ButCo I was ercial This particmmscared. $ 178 sq. ft.

ular church has a whole slew of people to greet you as you come in. (It’s a bit like Walmart without the carts). And I wasn’t sure how welcome I would be, given my past desertion(s). Turns out, one of the church greeters recognized me immediately, threw her arms around me in a big hug! “Welcome back! It’s so wonderful to see you! And you have a baby!” I stood through the contemporary gospel music, took part in the Anglican liturgy, the reading of the gospel, the prayers of the people and finally through communion, and I shed a private tear. The body’s way of washing you clean, I guess. The worship songs at the end made me clap my hands and dance a bit with a smile on my face -- authentically, even! In the end, I decided, you know what -- maybe I’ll always be a lousy Christian. Maybe I’ll never be as joyful and faithful and good as the “other Christians.” Or maybe deep down we’re all the same -- wavering between faith and doubt, sin and repentance, quiet ponderings and charismatic worship. So I’m going to keep going for a while because, maybe it’s selfish, but it makes me feel good and I need it -- kind of like going to the gym.

I

don’t write about faith much because, I’ll be honest, I’m a lousy Christian. I have doubt. I sin all the time. Sometimes I disrespect my parents, work through the Sabbath and forget to forgive people. I’m also uncomfortable talking to non-Christians about my faith, which makes me a terrible evangelist; I’m too private and stiff-upper-lipped to wave my hands in the air and chant “Jesus, Jesus,” authentically; and I’m incredibly fickle with my interests. I’ll go for months reading Bible passages, trying to figure it all out. Then in a snap, I’ll exchange the Bible for a business magazines and racy novels. I’m the Christian who goes to church regularly for a period of time before I ultimately decide I don’t fit in and abandon it. I’m sure there are people in every religion who feel like they don’t make the grade. My self-disappointment happens to be a function of my Christian heritage. Recently, however, I decided that, whatever my current beliefs or behaviours, my faith is important enough to ensure my daughter is baptised into it. I searched around for a church and decided to return to a downtown community. I don’t usually “return” to a church because I’m always fearful that people will be disappointed, angry or unhelpful, given my prior desertion. Usually, I like to shop around for a new church, a clean slate. But there’s one particular church in Centretown that has

Team Homan draws a full house at Kanata Sports Club Blair Edwards

blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC sports - The house was rocking at the Kanata Sports Club for the final Hot Seat of the year on Friday night, April 26. Canada’s women’s national curling championship team were special guests for the last-ever Hot Seat hosted by Mark Papousek, who announced he was retiring this year. Homan and her three teammates Emma Miskew, third, Alison Kreviazuk, second and Lisa Weagle, lead, took questions from a crowded clubhouse inside the Jack Charron Arena in Glen Cairn. It’s been a long road to the top, said Homan, from practising the game at local Ottawa rinks as children to raising the championship trophy after winning the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Kingston, Ont. in February and later winning a bronze medal at the 2013 World Women’s Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia. “It’s a lot of hard work and dedication and a lot of sacrifices,” said the 24-year-old Navan woman. “But in the end it paid off for us and we had to sacrifice a lot. There were some universities we couldn’t go to and some jobs we couldn’t take because we’re dedicated to this team and our team’s in Ottawa – that’s our main

goal. That’s our main focus.” The team said they were happy to visit the Kanata Sports Club and were impressed with the members’ knowledge and enthusiasm for curling.

That’s always the driving fuel behind everything, setting your goals. When you’re younger you have to set them a little bit smaller, accomplish small goals at a time, then eventually they’ll lead to a big one. Rachel Homan

“We try to go to local curling clubs when we can, but our season’s been very busy, so we’re really excited we’re able to be here today,” said Neagle. Homan, Miskew and Kreviazuk have been a team for a dozen years now – Weagle joined three years ago, replacing former lead Lynn Kreviazuk – ever since Miskew’s father called Homan’s dad, asking if the girls would like to curl together. All four women started their ca-

at the Granite Curling Club in Westboro. Their home rink is now the Ottawa Curling Club. Homan won four straight provincial bantam championships from 2003

to 2006. A year later, she skipped Team Ontario to a gold medal win at the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse, Yukon. In 2010, Homan together with Miskew, Laura Crocker and Lynn Kreviazuk won the Canadian Junior Curling Championship with an undefeated record of 13-0, earning the right to represent Canada at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championship, where they lost in the final to Sweden. Curling can be a superstitious sport, said Homan during an interview after the Hot Seat, ranging from sucking lucky mints, to wearing the same shirt or set of socks after winning a match. “Sometimes I’ll just keep the same socks on if we’re winning,” said Homan. “If we lose I’ll change my shirt into a different jersey.” It will be another four months before the team enters another competitive match – time used for practice, training at the gym and recuperation. The women share the same goal. “We’ve tried to take into account our long-term goals of maybe one day heading towards the Olympics,” said Homan. “That’s always the driving fuel behind everything, setting your goals. When you’re younger you have to set them a little bit smaller, accomplish small goals at a time, then eventually they’ll lead to a big one.”

An alarming 40,000 kids drop out of high school every year. Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are committed to changing that. They provide a safe and supportive place where kids can develop confidence and life skills. They offer programs like Rogers Raising the Grade to help kids with their studies. The Club is a place where kids can drop in, so they’re less likely to drop out.

Students earn global education Meadowlands school project looks to send water filtration system to Kenya Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A bake sale at Meadowlands Public School on April 19 will be the ďŹ nishing touch on a fundraising project to send a clean water ďŹ ltration station in Kenya. The students, who are part of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Me to We club, chose the village in Kenya three years ago, pledging to raise the $5,000 needed for the ďŹ ltration

system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really great because some of the older kids in the club knew they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here when the goal was reached, but they still wanted to help out,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Richardson, a teacher at Meadowlands. The student did a series of penny drives, used toys sales and bake sales in an effort to raise the money. The latest bake sale raised $1,147 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lots more than the $800 needed to get to the $5,000 total. Richardson said the unused baked goods went to resident of the Starwood Retirement Home. Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School also participated in the Me to We clean water campaign, raising $325 in a penny drive.

Teacher Ann-Marie Babineau said the group also hosted an all-day event for Grade 8 girls called Treasure Yourself, promoting positive self-esteem. It included six workshops all related to different issues such as bullying and women in media. The project was set up by four girls in Grade 12 for the Grade 8 students to help with their transition to high school and the school plans on continuing to organize this event in the years to come. Both schools were set to send students to the National We Day celebrations at the Robert Guertin Arena in Hull on April 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Me to We club philosophy ďŹ ts in really well with the character education curriculum,â&#x20AC;? Richardson said.

Rachel Gencher, and Brooklyn Viner count pennies from the Meadowlands Public School bake sale on April 19.

NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT Limoges Road Underpass Class Environmental Assessment and Detail Design STUDY OVERVIEW The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) retained Dillon Consulting Limited to complete the design and Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the rehabilitation of the Limoges Road Underpass on Highway 417 on the border of the Municipality of the Nation and the Township of Russell, County of Prescott and Russell. The extent of work required on the bridge is currently being reviewed along with impacts to traffic during construction. It is anticipated Limoges Road will remain open during construction, with one lane open. Two-way traffic will be maintained using temporary traffic signals, alternating the direction of traffic across the bridge. Single lane closures on Highway 417 may also be required along with periodic ramp closures. THE PROCESS The study will be completed following the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) for a Group ‘B’ project. The study will identify the most appropriate method to rehabilitate the bridge and will assess the impacts, including traffic management during construction and impacts to the natural environment. A report documenting the study process will be available for public review at the end the study. If during the study, it is determined there are no significant environmental effects associated with the project, the MTO may decide to step-down the project to a Group ‘C’. If this is the case, a notice will be published in local newspapers advising of the change and a study documentation report will be prepared for MTO’s internal use.

Become a Volunteer

Today.

PUBLIC AND AGENCY CONSULTATION Public and agency consultation is an important component of the study. It is anticipated that a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held once a recommended method for rehabilitating, removing or replacing the bridge has been identified and impacts of the project have been assessed. A notice of PIC will be published in local newspapers. If you would like to be contacted directly prior to the PIC, please contact Dillon at the address below and request to be added to the contact list. Additional information on the project is available at www.EastOntarioBridges.ca. COMMENTS We are interested in receiving comments or concerns that you may have with the study.

Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury takes questions from the floor at a recent community forum at Assumption Catholic School in Vanier.

Councillor forum well-attended michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Vanier residents voiced concerns about garbage collection, development, parks and safety at a forum hosted by the ward councillor recently. The event, held at Assumption Catholic School, provided residents the opportunity to meet with RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury to discuss issues and raise concerns about their community. The councillor provided an update on recent city activities before inviting questions from those gathered at the event. “I might not have every answer, but I will follow up with you,” Fleury said at the start of the meeting. The Vanier Community Association hosted the event, which saw about 40 residents attend. Fleury presented updates on changes to rules governing derelict properties, construction of the light-rail system, renovations at the Rideau Centre, the reconstruction of

Rideau Street and the future of the ByWard Market. Afterwards, the councillor opened up the floor to residents, who had a lot to say about garbage including concerns about collection, residents putting waste to the curb too early and about the number of bags homes can place for pickup. The councillor advised residents to communicate with his office directly about such concerns. One resident raised the issue of increased street parking on the blocks immediately east and west of Montreal Road. “A lot of the parking in this city doesn’t make sense,” Fleury said. “We need to revisit the parking policy, but on a small scale we can address your concerns.” The main message the councillor wanted to convey was for residents to know his door is always open and that he and his staff are there to help. Residents can contact the councillor at 613-580-2482 or by email at mathieu.fleury@ottawa.ca.

Meet Prince, a 9-year-old, neutered male, black Labrador Retriever Mix who does not act his age! Prince was brought to the OHS as a stray on February 14, and has been waiting for his Valentine to come adopt him since. Prince is a big, strong boy seeking a confident owner and will require an exercise partner to help him use up his energy on a daily

basis. He knows a lot of his commands and is a friendly and social boy that loves to flaunt and will seek petting from strangers. Prince has a preference for human companionship but may be suited to live with another respecting pooch who isn’t intimidated by his size. Ellie is a beautiful one-year-old, spayed female, tortie Domestic Long

Hair car, looking for an owner who would brush her regularly to keep her soft coat sleek. Ellie came to the OHS as a stray on December 15, 2012 and is now available for adoption! Ellie prefers to be in the company of older children and adults who can respect her desire to be in a quiet home. She is notorious for letting people know when she wants love and attention, and loves to curl up next to you on the couch to be petted. Ellie is looking to be the only feline love in your life. To learn more about King or Ozzy, or for more information on all of our animals, contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext 258 or visit us at our new location, 245 West Hunt Club Rd.

Signs of canine heatstroke/heat exhaustion include: rapid heartbeat, heavy panting, lethargy, lack of coordination, weakness or muscle tremors, unconsciousness, glazed eyes, convulsions. If you see an animal that may be suffering from heat exhaustion, and the owner can’t be quickly located, call the Ottawa Humane Society’s emergency phone line at 613-725-1532. Even if the car leaves before an OSPCA agent can arrive, the vehicle owner will receive an information package in the mail about the dangers of leaving animals in cars. If they are a repeat offender, they may be charged. A hot car is no place for a pet The OHS advises people that when it’s hot, leave your pet at home, with access to shade and plenty of fresh water.

Leaving a dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot day could be fatal. Each year the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) receives hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. When the thermometer soars, a parked car can quickly become a furnace, endangering an animal’s life and making the owner liable to criminal charges. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand internal body temperatures of 40°C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. LastTime year,towe received 325 telephone reports of dogs make in carsa grooming on hot days, 126 of which lead to warnings appointment and advisories to individuals. The OHS Rescue and Investigation Services team removed 8 dogs from cars and we charged 9 individuals, resulting in 8 convictions.

Centre offers creative way to donate

SMALL BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre has launched a campaign to spark some creativity and raise much-needed funds into the non-profit organization. The centre launched its Buy a Stake campaign at the beginning of February to encourage community members to get creative and design one stake for a fence at the centre that will be built in June. “We are inviting the community to make this centre their own,” said Melanie Davis, the centre’s executive director. The cedar stakes are $50, for which the centre will issue a charitable receipt for $40. Davis said the centre has been hosting decorating parties, where those who have purchased a stake can personalize their own piece of the fence. Otherwise, the donors can take them home to decorate or commission one of the centre’s artists to get creative on their behalf. Acrylic, oil or exterior house paint is recommended and the next decorating party is planned for May 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. The centre is hoping to raise $15,000 from the campaign to update the facility in order to meet current building and fire codes. The building where the community centre is currently operating was purchased in September 2011. Since the non-profit organization moved in, the group has launched new programming for the New Edinburgh community, but the facility itself must be upgraded. The centre must have a fire exit on each floor of the three-storey building. In addition the group aims to make the first floor

Davis said she decided to launch this creative fundraiser as a way to generate community involvement, raise much needed funds and add some artistic flair to the outside of the building. The fence will frame the property and so far it is shaping up to be a unique mix of colours, ideas, images and concepts. Davis said really, when it comes to the design, it’s the artist’s choice. “It’s a way to draw attention to the fact this is a community and art centre,” Davis said. “New Edinburgh is a creative com-

munity and we felt this was a great way to show that.” To purchase a stake in person or over the phone, Davis said to call the centre at 613745-2742. Purchased stakes must be returned by May 25, when they will be coated with sealant and then built into the fence. The complete fence will be revealed on June 1, when the centre participates in Doors Open Ottawa, with a community event in the front yard. Please visit www.nectarcentre.ca for more information.

Grateful for CHEO’s Support Jonathan was diagnosed with epilepsy, a complex neurological condition. Although some people with epilepsy have mild symptoms, others like Jonathan have full-fledged convulsions that leave him unconscious. After the initial excitement that his seizures were under control thanks to medications commonly used to treat epilepsy, they returned with a vengeance. In fact during one such episode his parents had to call 911 to ensure their son would make it to CHEO as quickly as possible because he was struggling to breathe.

By Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

Jonathan Puerto was born healthy but a few weeks later began having seizures after he woke up from his naps. Worried, his parents Elizabeth Pineda and Jose Eduardo Puerto took him to their pediatrician who referred them to CHEO. Under the trusted care of Dr. Sharon Whiting, a pediatric neurologist, Jonathan underwent testing to identify the cause of the severe seizures he experienced on a daily basis, some of which left him unconscious and fighting to breathe. Tests revealed a lesion on the front left side of his brain, the result of a stroke he had likely suffered at birth. Then at six months of age, following additional testing to eliminate other conditions,

To make things worse, when Jonathan was six years old, he had a severe allergic reaction to the standard seizure drug that paramedics carry and went into anaphylactic shock.CHEO specialists were able to help him and to search for another medication to control his seizures.Dr. Whiting herself called paramedic services and officials at Ottawa Public Health to lobby for Jonathan. They were very receptive and now have a specific care plan specifically tailored to needs, and Jonathan now carries his new medication with him at all times to ensure paramedics can access it when he needs to be transported to CHEO. “That is the CHEO difference. Our son’s doctor took the time to not only identify the best medicine for him, but she made calls herself to various agencies to ensure they’d use this new medication to keep our son safe,” explains Elizabeth, who shudders as she recalls a particularly severe seizure that lasted 24 hours. “Without that care plan, Jonathan’s life would be at risk.”

Further tests revealed that Jonathan also suffers from cerebral palsy, and he’s since been diagnosed as having autism.Despite those additional challenges, Jonathan is thriving. He speaks three languages, and is in a special needs grade four class where he loves working on the computer, playing with trucks and being with his friends. One role he particularly enjoys is that of older brother to his 18 month old sibling David. Ultimately, the goal is for Jonathan to live his best life, seizure-free and safe. For now, there has been some progress: though he still has occasional seizures they only last 10 minutes or less, as opposed to hours at a time—and their frequency decreased from daily episodes to once every two weeks.If Jonathan’s seizures were to come back at a higher frequency, the next step would be brain surgery but his parents are hopeful that he can avoid that… at least for a while. “Jonathan is a good boy and he’s so handsome,” coos Elizabeth. “My husband and I are very proud of him because despite all his health issues he remains a positive little boy who is very loving and caring. Every morning he wakes up with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him and his brother David.” Jonathan will be ten years old in June.With the help of his loving family, their friends and the expert CHEO staff, this young boy can trust that he is in good hands and that he will be well cared for with a treatment plan tailor-made to his needs.And this is something the Puerto family is truly grateful for.

Living with Cancer By Tracey Tong

A husband, father of two adult children and former senior civil servant, Andrew Griffith was healthy and active in his early fifties.

is about something bigger than the individual. “It’s also about how we all react and support one another during times of need,” he said.

Then in June 2009 Griffith’s life turned upside down. He was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma, an aggressive and incurable form of lymphoma.

His record of his cancer journey has now turned into a book – Living with Cancer: A Journey.

He immediately underwent treatment at The Ottawa Hospital, where, over the next three years, he went through a cycle of recovery, relapse and further treatment. He decided to chronicle his experiences, reactions and reflections on how he came to terms with his fate, and documented the numerous physical, emotional and relationship challenges he faced. His writings became a journey of self-discovery. During the writing process he realized that the disease

“This is a story of appreciation for the bigger and smaller things in life; of reflection, and on how not to take life for granted,” said Griffith, who included his thoughts on living, faith, support, creating meaning and working with others in the book. Since his illness, Andrew has contributed to MD Anderson’s Cancerwise, KevinMD and the Cancer Knowledge Network.

well as health professionals wishing to gain a better understanding of the patient experience. He will be donating 50 per cent of author proceeds to The Ottawa Hospital Foundation.
