    Today's Parent (Rogers Media Publishing) - November 2010
    On this assignment (hard-copy only, available by request) I spent the day with the Seguin family while their 22-month-old son had day surgery for his eye cancer at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax. I interviewed the parents, and the medical team that cared for Michael Seguin that day and wrote an article detailing the family's experiences raising an energetic toddler with retinoblastoma.
