Remembering Moira- Massel and Cruickshank family & Dave Kahlil’s Take a Break Concert

Moira was a very strong woman who did not deserve what happened to her.  She was an extraordinary wife, mother, daughter, sister(in-law), aunt and friend.  On June 1, 2005 she was taken far too soon.

Moira was an amazing physician, co-worker and colleague. The hospital’s flag was half-mast the day she died. We look at her needlework and knitting. We remember her storytelling, great sense of humour and talents (like cooking and drinking both out of (I) a glass and  (ii) a bottle of beer without using her hands). We miss her terribly.

The year before she died she made another difference.  Notwithstanding her prognosis, she considered herself lucky — she had no financial issues. Moira established a fund in London to help women with breast cancer make their lives a bit easier by providing wigs, prosthesis, child care, parking and anti-nausea medication which, but for the fund, they would do without. The fund was the first of its kind in Ontario. Thanks to her vision thousands of women and their families have been helped over the last 17 years.

We are writing to ask a favour.

On Saturday June 5th at 7:30 (ET) please log on to Dave Kalil’s Facebook page Dave Kalil | Facebook “Take a Break” and join us for 90 minutes of great entertainment.   Dave is known as “Ottawa’s Piano Man”.  He has played a virtual concert pretty well every Saturday night during the pandemic.  This will be number 58.  People log in from across Canada and around the world, are entertained and reconnect.  Since November over $120,000 has been raised for local Ottawa charities — all have struggled financially during the pandemic.  Oh yes, Dave went to Laurentian and lived in Copeland Park.

 


 

Courage Against Cancer

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, with nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to experience cancer in their lifetime. As four high school students, we realized that there was a lack of cancer awareness initiatives that also provided youth with opportunities to make a change in their own community, so we founded Courage Against Cancer to fill that gap. Courage Against Cancer is a youth-led platform that aims to provide students with the scope to learn about the disease, network with youth passionate about cancer awareness, and explore opportunities to help cancer patients and survivors in their own communities. Through interactive events like webinars, fundraisers for charities, trivias, and scientific updates, we hope to connect students to convenient resources to broaden their horizons in the world of cancer and oncology.What inspired us to fundraise for Breast Cancer Ottawa: We realized that the COVID-19 pandemic has largely restricted treatment options for those with chronic illnesses. With hospitals overflowing and many fundraising events being cancelled, we wished to use our platform to support whoever we could. In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we partnered with Breast Cancer Action Ottawa and the Kelly’s Boutique’s “Kelly Project”. Through this initiative, we believe that we can create a wonderful opportunity for our members to take initiative in making a change within their community while gaining valuable learning and leadership experience.
