Day two – to the most eastern part of the continent and more!
Prior to leaving beautiful St. John’s, the Exceptional Care Odyssey headed to Cape Spear, the most eastern part of land on the continent which is shaped like a spear. As we headed out of St. John’s Newfoundland, we met VOCM Radio Road Show host Gina Colburn who was happy to learn about how the local Mazol Shriners are working hard to help support Shriners Hospitals for Children-Canada as well as the role the hospital plays in the lives of 210 young Newfoundlanders in need of specialty orthopaedic care either through the Gander Outreach Clinic or at the hospital in Montreal.
Later in the day, the Exceptional Care Odyssey made its way to Burin to meet with the members of the Boot Shrine Club where the Boot Shrine Riders greeted the FezMobile with their parade cars. The membership welcomed two families that are going to attend the Gander Outreach clinic on Tuesday, May 20th. As well, they welcomed the arrival of patient Maya and her mom from Quebec as these two will follow the Odyssey from coast to coast. Eleven year-old Maya has already undergone one leg lengthening procedure and could undergo up to three more by the time she is an adult. Potentate Wayne Mayo applied the Mazol seal on the FezMobile.
