Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.ca

Kelly was described as "the voice and incarnation of healthcare reform in the north."Kelly's other achievements included bringing several lab training programs to the College of New Caledonia and the opening of the B.C. Cancer Centre for the North in Prince George so patients would not have to travel to other parts of the province to receive treatment. He could be, quite frankly, a real pain in the ass, but it was very timely and necessary when it was applied.- Susan ScottScott said Kelly was unafraid to speak out about problems."He'd tell you the truth even if you didn't want to hear it," she said."He could be, quite frankly, a real pain in the ass, but it was very timely and necessary when it was applied."Prince George-Valemount MLA Shirley Bond described Kelly as a "catalyst for change" in a Tweet thanking him for his advocacy.In a 2014 interview with CBC, Kelly continued to raise alarm bells about the lack of health care services in northern B.C., citing a lack of physiotherapists, speech pathologists and other specialists and asked for funding to have them trained in the region, as well."For better than 100 years now we've been training professionals in the Lower Mainland, hoping they will move north," he said.

Ex-football player tackling cancer - Prince George Citizen

Thursday, September 14, 2017

You can't ask for a better support network if you're teenager fighting a really rare battle." Jake, who turns 18 on Oct. 31, graduated in June from Duchess Park and now attends the College of New Caledonia, studying computer network electronic technology. He works part-time at Starbucks in College Heights and volunteers for the Canadian Cancer Society as part of Team Diller at the annual Run For the Cure in May and also helps out at the Inside Ride to Conquer Cancer in October."If I'm still alive and can do things I'm going to do that until I can't anymore, I'll still try to do what I can," he said. "I know (losing his leg) is an inevitability but I can't be put down by that, I still have to keep moving forward." Jake first complained about leg pain and the fact his pant leg was getting tighter when he was 14. He was diagnosed in 2014 and was given 50 bouts of low-dose chemotherapy. At 15, he had 28 radiation treatments but the tumours continued to grow. Nearly unable to walk due to swelling, with the tumours blocking the flow of blood in his leg, he had his first surgery when he was 16, needing 87 stables to close the wounds, but it didn't stop the cancer from returning. The largest tumour he now has runs from his calf to mid-thigh and is 30 centimetres long and 10 cm in diameter."These tumours get very angry when you touch them and the minute you do a surgery or biopsy they get angry and grow a lot of times," said Carrie. "But they're so rare, there's no traditional clinical trials because people aren't responding the same way."Unfortunately it's incurable right now and we have no way to get them to stop at this point, so he's one of the very few kids to have personalized oncogenomics (POG) treatment, which is targeted gene therapy."POG has proven effective in fighting some types of aggressive cancer. Jake just returned from Vancouver, where he was given cryoablation treatment, in which a super-cooled gas is injected into the tumours. He'll have that every three months."We're trying to avoid amputation because even if we amputate, another tumour will come back for him," said Carrie. "Fibroblasts, which are how some of these tumours react, are like scar tissue for us and it heals. But in his case it keeps coming back and creating new tumours."Jake is the only minor under the care of the B.C. Cancer Centre of the North at UHNBC and unfortunately for him, an MRI exam nine months in March 2016 failed to detect the tumour that showed up last December. Rather than express anger that it wasn't diagnosed earlier, Carrie said he gave his doctor a hug and told her," You're just the messenger, you didn't give me my cancer."Jake has had his moments of depression and anger dealing with his life-threatening condition but says there's no point in dwelling on the negatives and moping about what's happened to him."I just keep moving forward because I know I have to, there's going to be no end to this and there's no point in stopping," he said. "You know you have more treatments ahead of you and it's going to get worse and you have to stay strong and keep telling yourself that this can't beat you, you're better than this."This weekend the Northland Dodge Prince George Senior Baseball League is organizing two fundraising events at Citizen Field for Jake to help him and his family pay their travel expenses while he's receiving medical treatments in Vancouver. Many of those costs are not covered because he's treated at Vancouver General Hospital rather than at B.C. Children's Hospital.The league's home run derby starts at 7 p.m. tonight at Citizen Field and the all-star game is on Sunday at 2 p.m. Jake hasn't played much baseball in his life but says he'll probably take a few...

Funeral for victim of crash near Caledonia - durhamregion.com

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

CALEDONIA, Ont. — A funeral for one of three people killed in a crash near Caledonia, Ont., will take place today. A service to honour 12-year-old Grace King will be held this morning. The chief of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation is requesting privacy for King's family and all those affected by last Wednesday's crash. King and 14-year-old Waagosh Secord were returning home with members of a youth group when a car crashed into the van they were travelling in, killing both girls and injuring six others. The driver of the car, 21-year-old Wyatt Martin, was also killed in the crash. Funeral services for him and Secord took place over the weekend. ...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...
