Ingrid Exner: 2010 Volunteer of Distinction

Ingrid Exner has been the Burlington Support Group Co-Facilitator since the launch of the group in April 2009. As the Co-Facilitator, she has gone over and above the requirements of the role by: providing additional check-ins with members between meetings and sending “e-care” information packages (emails containing tips for coping and wellness, as well as lists of resources in the Burlington area) to support group members during the summer months when the group does not meet. This provides an important element of additional support and connection for all of the group members.

As the Coordinator of Volunteer Services for Danielle’s Place, an Eating Disorder and Resource Centre in Burlington, Ontario, Ingrid understands the importance of building relationships and networks with health care professionals at local organizations and clinics. So, during the summer of 2010, she took the leadership to spread awareness about Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s programs and services by visiting numerous hospitals and treatment centres in her region to provide staff with contacts and resources.

She also recently gave a presentation to her sorority to help with awareness and donations to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Ingrid is thirsty for information and is very willing to help in any way that she can.

Thank you Ingrid for helping to build connections and support in the Burlington and Hamilton area, your dedication is invaluable.

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.
