Remembering Sean Collins (1994-2007)

Today is the second anniversary of the passing of Sean Collins, a Moncton boy whose valiant struggle with cancer was documented brilliantly by author Martin Latulippe in the book Ten Needles (French title: Dix aiguilles). I was honoured to have worked on the English edition of the book, which has become a Canadian bestseller and has raised more than $100,000 to help sick children.

Sean's favourite quote was "Live each day as if it were your last." It is excellent advice.
