Marche pour les prématurés

Last Sunday was the annual ‘marche pour les prématurés’ in Montreal, and several other cities across Québec. Some other towns have their walks this coming Sunday (see the website of Préma-Québec, who organize them). This year the walk was covered by the RDI TV station, who put a short section on their evening news. You can see it here (in French). Apart from the introduction with its obligatory statements like ‘the happiness of a birth is replaced by anguish when the baby is premature, often the parents have to live with the sequelae of saving their little miracle’ (Eugh). The rest of the presentation was rather well done. Of note there is an interview with our nursing unit chief and her daughter, born at 29 weeks, which Roxanne handles very well. And just before the end a flash of Violette picking up her badge with 24 written on it.
