I have a feeling that everyone knows someone who has had cancer. All of my healthy granparents succumbed to it and my father also fought a hard battle. Although my father subscribed to a more alternative mode of treatment, I recall sitting with him at Princess Margaret Hospital on a number of occasion. And it was a busy busy place, where my parents even ran into our old cottage neighbors who were also battling with cancer.
So, what can we do about it? Well, it’s time for another Princess Margaret Hospital Sweepstakes, in support of cancer care and research. The tickets might be a bit steep ($100 or $250 for 3-pack) but there are so many prizes that you actually have a chance at winning a cottage in the Muskokas, a downtown Toronto condo, a chalet at Blue Mountain, luxury cars, vacations, $$$ and an Oakville home designed by Lynda Reeves.
Lynda describes the home as being inspired by country homes in Belgium and France and I think she accomplished that rustic feeling while keeping it simple and modern. Head on over to House & Home to check out the video tours (new one loaded every week), design tips, resource guide or visit the house yourself for a free tour. And if you can, donate to the Princess Margaret Hospital either through the Sweepstakes or donate whatever you can directly to the Princess Margaret Foundation.
