40 Years of Hope

40 years ago this week, on April 12, Terry Fox dipped his foot into the Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland and transformed the course of cancer research in Canada. The suffering he saw in the cancer wards after his diagnosis compelled him to act. Terry was an innovator, fundraiser, athlete, humanitarian. His Marathon of Hope is turning 40 years old and his message is as timely as ever.

It feels like the world is in a holding pattern, waiting for this global crisis to end but we know that cancer patients can’t wait for this crisis to be over. Nor can the researchers who have made it their life’s work to save lives.

So this week, in honour of Terry, and his dream of a world without cancer, we are asking you to give if you can.

Stay safe, stay hopeful.

加人患失智症30年後料倍增

加拿大在未來30年內患有失智症的患者人數將增加一倍,儘管聯邦政府和安省政府均制訂了失智症戰略,但由於長期護理中心人滿為患,愈來愈多的失智症患者不得不留在家中,給照顧他們的護理人員提供教育已成為當務之急,以安省為例,現時有超過22萬名居民和他們的家庭受到失智症的影響。

約克區華人精神健康計劃與頤康中心、約克區認知障礙症協會攜手合作,在昨天聯合舉辦了第二屆失智症會議。是次會議以在社工和在長期護理中心等機構工作的護士和個人護理員等專業人士為對象,旨在幫助與會者充分了解安省的失智症戰略概要,以及該戰略將如何由失智症協會實施。….[轉載明報專訊]

《Stroke amongst Chinese Canadians with Diabetes》 __ Joseph Chu (71)

Here is a recently published article in the Canadian Journal of Diabetes by my student and me on the subject:JoesepChu_170523
Although it is a peer-reviewed scientific article, I trust the conclusions and recommendations are easy for non-medical people to understand.
It looks like that Chinese with stroke have a higher frequency of Diabetes and their prognosis fair worst even if their blood pressure severity is not as bad.

火龍果開花 __ Don Chen (71)

家種火龍果,從來未開花。今早起床,驚艷大花朵盛放。
淡淡的黃花苞,淺綠色的花蕊,白色的花瓣,就如佳人臉孔,向我狂笑。

讀書/練功札記(一)『 入靜』__ 梁梓堅 (71)

中國傳統養生之道,修練氣功歴史悠久,廣泛流傳。儒道佛三家對此都有其獨特方法,師承及見解。儒家藉修練氣功,強身健體外,主旨是達至:

儒家認為,影響練功成績至大的,是“ 入靜 ” 的深淺。而「涵養道德」,則為
“ 入靜 ” 深淺之關鍵。
現先談 “ 入靜 ”。
