Sarmite Bulte


Ms. Sarmite Bulte (Parkdale—High Park, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, on May 10, I attended the fourth annual Lori's Room Walkathon in my riding of Parkdale--High Park to benefit St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation and the Lori's Room Fund.
Established in 1996 by her parents, Doug and Lorna Martin, the Lori's Room Fund honours the memory of Lorna-Lynn Martin, a young woman who struggled against a particularly virulent form of cancer, which eventually caused her passing.
The endowment fund is used to create healing environment rooms that support patients at St. Joseph's. Through the refurbishing and refurnishing of the rooms, St. Joseph's hopes to make Lori's Room more like a residential setting that is more conducive to rest, relaxation and healing.
Cancer has affected us all in one form or another. As a result, over the past few years the support for the Lori's Room Fund has been overwhelming, with the support of many family members, friends, staff and members of our community.
I wish to extend congratulations to all participants in the Lori's Room Fund.
