Northey Family Library

The Northey Family Library was established in 2005 as a source of brain tumour information to support anyone affected by a brain tumour.

There are more than 30 topics explored including brain tumours, nutrition, personal stories and much more.

Each section has a list of books related to that topic as well as external links to other community programs and services.

 Although the Northey Family Library is an internal library and not a lending library, we have listed all of the resources including the title, author and ISBN code for you to find these resources at your local library or bookstore. If you live in or near London, Ontario or visiting and would like to come in for a visit to browse our materials, we would love to meet you in person.

Janet and Adam's Story: Beating the odds to share another birthday together

Turning the same age, on the same day as my husband, never gets old. They call us, Astro-Twins. According to many different sources, the odds were low that it would have lasted. His Auntie May discouraged it from the start saying, “You are both Sagittarians and should NOT be together.” My daughter Isobel did a quick calculation. Fun fact. In a group of 100 people there is a 2.8% chance of two people having the same birthday.
