MY IMAGINARY ILLNESS
For decades Chloe Atkins has suffered from an illness no one can diagnose. At times it has left her paralyzed and unable to breathe on her own. She's written a book chronicling her journey through the medical system and she was here to talk about it.
If you would like to volunteer this holiday season, Volunteer Calgary has a lot of ideas for you.
Another way to help out this season is to volunteer to help seniors in need. You can mail a donation to:
3639 - 26 Street NE Calgary, Alberta T1Y 5E1, go to www.calgaryseniors.org to make a secure donation or call the Calgary Seniors office at 403-266-6200.
BONE MARROW DRIVE
If you or someone you know are going to be in the Edmonton area today, please take a few moments to try to help save a life. Seven year old Noel Young of Calgary is battling Chronic Granulomatous disease. He's hoping to get a stem cell transplant to treat the potentially life-threatening condition. A Calgary clinic found 1,000 potential donors, but failed to find a match. Tomorrow Canadian Blood Services is partnering with Noel's family and friends to raise awareness and try to find a stem cell match either for Noel or one of the other 800 other Canadians seeking matches. A stem cell drive and cheek swab clinic is being held from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today to begin the registration process for potential donors. Donors must be 17 - 50 years old, in good health and willing to donate to anyone in need. If the cheek swab determines you are a match, becoming a donor is often as easy as giving blood.
