Assault Victim's Sister Speaks Out After Brother's Death - PembinaValleyOnline.com

Thursday, November 17, 2016

The sister of a man who died as a result of injuries suffered in Winkler this weekend is speaking out in the aftermath of the senseless act of violence. Zack Straughan was severely beaten at Valley Bowling Lanes Saturday night before passing away on Monday at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. However, his sister Cassie Straughan says thanks to the CPR efforts of the first responder from Winkler Police, Zack may impact many lives as an organ donor. His heart, liver, both kidneys and pancreas will be eligible for donation. "I don't know who the police officer was at the scene, I would really like to meet him and shake his hand. Because of his quick thinking and CPR he did on my brother, (Zack's) heart is suitable to go to a person." Even though saddened at the sudden passing of her brother, Straughan was looking forward to having Zack walk her down the aisle, she says knowing the recipient of Zack's heart will be given a second chance fills her with joy. She notes becoming an organ donor is a personal choice, but urges other to consider the option.

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Nipawin, was confirmed to be one of the victims of the of the crash. (Supplied)SASwpLyndon Friesen, president of Bolt FM’s parent company, Golden West Radio, travelled from Manitoba to attend Thursday’s service with other employees. Friesen called Bieber’s death “tragic” and said it had a huge impact on those who work there.“He was a critical piece to the station,” Friesen said in an interview.Maureen Johnson, who knows Bieber’s mother and has a child Bieber’s age, wore a jersey to the service. She said she attended the funeral to show support not only for Bieber’s family, but “to show strong support for the kids in the hospital.”The collision between the Broncos bus and a semi-trailer took place last Friday around 5 p.m. on Highway 35 about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale as the Broncos travelled to Nipawin from Humboldt in a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) semifinal series against the Nipawin Hawks. Of the 29 people on board, 16 died in the collision and 13 were injured. The driver of the semi-trailer was not injured.Bieber was vice-president of the Humboldt touch football league, involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters as a mentor and was set to start coaching at a football academy in Saskatoon three days a week. Bieber was also a fan of the NFL’s New England Patriots. When Patriots owner Robert Kraft learned that, he sent flowers on behalf of the team to Thursday’s service and also left a voicemail for Bieber’s mother expressing condolences, according to ESPN.“My son was one amazing man,” Bieber’s mother, Marilyn Hay, said last week. “He would get up at 5:30 every morning and go to work, but his day didn’t stop there. After, he would volunteer with the high school kids — teaching them basketball, football, he taught the girls flag football — he had a real passion for that.“Tyler was rarely at home between running from work to volunteer jobs,” she said. “He wasn’t in it for the money, he’d get paid extra for being an announcer, but he’d drop that to go be a volunteer coach instead.”In a post on Facebook, his brother Brandon said, “I don’t know what to do or say right now but I know one thing is you will always be true in my heart, RIP my sweet brother, I miss you and love you dearly.”In addition to several services across Western Canada scheduled for the coming days, three other funerals are set to take place in Humboldt.A celebration of life has been announced for Jacob Leicht, 19, on Friday at 10 a.m. at the Elgar Petersen Arena.

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Dix did say he feels for the family and other patients suffering from the disease, but that his staff would consult with the Ontario government — along with those of Manitoba and Quebec, the other two provinces that cover Soliris — and make an informed decision based on what they find.Wanting to do moreBack in Mississauga, Saiphoo says the B.C. government’s unwillingness to cover the drug goes against evidence of the drug’s efficacy, and rejects the idea that there’s a lack of concrete results.“I’m speechless, I don’t know what to say about that,” she said.“The results are me sitting here now being able to talk to you. Being in the comfort of my own home.“I mean, I’m proof [that it works].”Saiphoo says now that she has access to the drug, all she wants to do is share it with people like Anaquod.“I have an infusion coming up on Saturday,” she said. “If I could just give her that infusion I would gladly do it, because I know it would help.”Let's block ads!
