Brianna’s Story

Thirteen-year-old Brianna Murphy doesn’t allow diabetes to run her life. Brianna has Type 1 Diabetes and visits the Diabetic Clinic at Northside General Hospital regularly. Her condition doesn’t stop her from playing basketball and soccer or from competing in dance competitions.

    On June 15, 2019 (rain date June 16) the Northside/Harbourview Hospital Foundation will host our 5th Annual Cape Breton Motor Madness, promoted as an “anything with a motor” car show for all ages.

Gordon Carmichael

Gordon’s Story

I am an eighty-eight year old man with a number of health issues. I enjoy the Seniors Daycare Program because it gives me a reason to get up and get dressed. I wait for the taxi to take me to the Harbourview Hospital where I meet friends and when I arrive I am offered breakfast. I also like the exercise programs that loosen up my muscles. I learn exercises that can use at home. By going to the seniors program my caregiver David, and my wife too, have some time to shop, to go to meetings or just relax. Read more →
