Dear Editor:

June 6, 2009 will mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day – the greatest Allied battle of the Second World War.

As a local member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, in which members of the Association's Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program pass the NEVER AGAIN! message from war amputee veterans to the younger generation, I would like to inform the public of three important documentaries that tell of the sacrifice and heroism of Canadians on D-Day.

To obtain access to the results, physicians have had to learn of the activity, request the file, and wait for it to be mailed, faxed, or called in. Now, there is a new way for health care providers to gain access to such vital results - via an Ontario-wide fully integrated electronic health record system called the electronic Child Health Network or eCHN.

Dear Editor/Advertising Manager:

Please help the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF) find a cure or effective control for cystic fibrosis - the most common, fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians.

As a national health charity (charitable registration no. 10684 5100 RR0001), the CCFF relies on the generosity of newspapers like yours to help generate awareness of cystic fibrosis. We ask you to place our filler ads, especially in May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month.
