Medicine Hat Skateboard Association held an event at The Lucky Squid on the weekend. The group was amazed and very gratious by the generosity of the staff, artists, and the community that stopped in for a piercing, tattoo and the silent auction at The Lucky Squid Saturday! And would like to Thank everyone for helping them raise over $12,500 towards ending human trafficking!
A Halifax neurosurgeon has performed a career first, after a young patient asked him to stitch up a beloved teddy bear while the boy recovered from surgery. McNeely said he couldn’t say no when the boy asked him to fix a tear in his fluffy friend right before his surgery.
Dr McNeely said “I thought if there was something I could do to help make him feel better, it seemed like a simple gesture and I was only too happy to oblige,” The doctor asked the nurses to prepare a small table with some tools, and he used leftover stitches from McKie’s procedure to patch up the bear, Little Baby. The boy and his bear are recovering well at home, and his family has printed a photo of the extra-special operation.
