Let me begin by saying that this was my second time and I must say that this is one of the most rewarding experiences I have taken part in helping.
The children that you meet here are simply amazing and to see them work so hard to do what we take for granted everyday is awesome.
One of the many children that I met that day was a really great boy named Ben. I met Ben and his mother Melissa who were at the clinic to meet with Dr. Neil Saran from Montreal. They were gracious in allowing me to photograph their visit so we can all see the great work that is being done.....thank you Melissa and Ben!
This is Ben....a great kid!
Here Ben is sharing a moment with his Mother, Melissa, while waiting to see Dr. Saran.
Ben is a pleasant boy and the nurses also have a real soft spot for him
Then Ben finally gets to meet Dr Saran
Its time for Ben to show Dr Saran his abilities.
Everyone is out and watching Ben show his stuff!
Looks like everyone is watching and encouraging Ben...
And he makes it back and everyone including the Doctor appears pleased with Ben!
This was only one child that day who I had the privilege of watching and displaying their abilities...they all work so hard.
We also had a visiting Shriner to watch how the clinic is handled in Sudbury....great guy!
After the end of the day, there was a social hour held and the visiting staff from Montreal were invited to the Shrine Club for an opportunity to meet and mingle with the Shriners from Sudbury,

As I mention at the beginning of this presentation, these kids are so impressive...they are a joy to watch and help as they improve and the opportunity to be part of it is simply amazing!
