Help for a New Mom-to-be

For those of you from Erin, Ontario, you may remember Meghan McGuire, the youngest sister of Brianna, Seamus and Shannon.   But even if you don’t, I have a story to share.

Meghan, my neighbour growing up, recently moved to Whitehorse, Yukon with her husband Mark and found out in May that they were going to expand their family with a baby who is due mid-December.  In August, their family plans were side-swiped with the discovery that Mark had several brain tumours and has now been diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma.  Since the diagnosis, they have spent most of their time in Vancouver as Mark gets the treatment he needs from medical experts.  As you can imagine this is a stressful and trying time as Meghan gets into the later days of her pregnancy and Mark deals with the side-effects of chemo, and now radiation.

You can read and follow their story at

In a situation like this it is easy to feel powerless, and you don’t have to know them to feel their anxiety  and want to do something to alleviate it.  While I am not religious by any means, I do believe in the power of prayer and positive thinking.  Studies by Masuru Emoto have found that studying the water crystals of water that has been prayed over form clear unbroken crystals and religions around the world have used prayer to help their sick for centuries.  While it is not a cure, thinking positively and praying for the health of others is one step in a multi-faceted strategy for health.

This holiday as you rush around with your young family and feel the stress of the holidays build, please take a moment to send a message of love and health over to Meghan and Mark. Read their blog, leave them a note of encouragement and share their story with others.

Thanks, Laurie
