'Finding my miracle': Communities give back after CTV Vancouver story
On a chilly day during December’s “snow-pocalypse”, I travelled to Port Moody with double my body weight in yarn donated by Metro Vancouverites.
While this may seem like a strange, new age aerobics routine, my mission had a more philanthropic purpose. I had recently written an article on a courageous young woman who had her life torn apart by a chronic and invisible disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) – and people around the Lower Mainland wanted to help.
Vancouver’s St. Paul’s Hospital runs the home TPN training program where Catherine learned how to use the tools to keep herself alive, and she regularly donates blankets, and baby hats to their gift shop.
