Hello everyone! 

 I just wanted to let you all know that it has been 10 years since my last surgery and shunt revision.  And we couldn't have done it without you!


I would like to acknowledge and thank all those who have been there and who continue to be here for me and my family.  Your love and support throughout the years, during my difficult times and long recoveries have meant a lot to me.  

A special thank you to my wife and kids for continuing to be strong by my side, and for all your patience, understanding, love and support.  I couldn't have gotten through this ordeal without you. 

To my parents, my wife's parents, and my sister Kallie for being there for us when we needed you the most.

Thank you to all our friends and family who offered there support, love and prayers. 

To Shelley formally of Community Assistant Trust, and Jackie Martin of John Howard's Society.  Thank you for your understanding, financial support, guiding us in the right direction, and helping us get back on our feet.

I would like to especially thank our friends Susan McLean, Nelson McLean, Sheri Wood, Lee Ann Marshall, Anna Tassone, Andre Larocque, Mark and Dawn Trudeau, Marc Sageloly, Natalie Gordon, Paul and Michelle Pateman, Steve and Linda Legacy, Mike and Nicole Allard, Len Ward, Ray and Sara Monteiro, Brian and Giselle Raymond,and to Kim and Frank Palermo.  You have all in some way helped me and my family in our time of need.  We appreciate everything you do for us.  Your friendship is very important to me.

Also to my employers Dave Ross, John Stefano, Steve Filek, Tom Bock, and Bea Fioramanti. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family.  Your patience, understanding, support, and generosity have meant a lot to me.

To my parish priest Monsignor Victor Amadio.  Your prayers and support have helped me during my time of need.  Thank you.

And to our wonderful neighbours Frank and Mary Lou Caputo, Stan and Franca Cardiff, and Ed and Lorraine Guitard. Thank you for being there for us, dropping off and bringing over food, and helping us out when we needed it.  It is nice to know that you are there and that we can always count on you.

Last, but not least, I would like to thank Dr. Ogundimu and Dr. Adegbite the neurosurgeons in Sudbury who have done all my surgeries and shunt revisions, to the wonderful nurses and staff who have always been so nice and friendly as well as accomodating to me and my family during our stay and always made me feel comfortable.

And to my previous family doctor Luigi Battel. You always took the time to see me and you addressed all my questions and concerns.  You helped me get through my many problems.  But most of all you treated me like I was important and that I mattered to you. You showed me and my family that you genuinely cared.  You are an excellent doctor and we wish you were still here in the Sault.

Finally, to all the paramedics, nurses and staff who on numerous occasions have attended to my emergencies and medical needs, both at home and at the hospital.  Thank you for your quick response, and for acting in a  pleasant, friendly, and profession manner.  My wife and I put my life in your hands each and every time, and we appreciate your service and dedication to your work.  Great job!  

And for anyone that I may have missed or forgot to mention, thank you for all your prayers, love and support!
