Another Day, Another Donut

I'm heading to the Pasqua Hospital in Regina, Saskatchewan this morning. Not because I'm sick, but because I'm meeting the inspiring eight-time cancer survivor Dionne Warner, the subject of my book Never Leave Your Wingman.

About once a month, Dionne and I sign books in the foyer of the hospital, just in front of the Gift Shop (which sells the book for us) and across the aisle from the Robin's Donut coffee shop. We meet all variety of wonderful people - including cancer survivors, their spouses and friends and family members, Allan Blair Cancer Centre staff, hospital staff, folks going to the hospital for health reasons or to visit... plus random strangers who quickly become friends.

It's always a fun time. It can't help but be fun when you're hanging out with Dionne Warner. She just makes EVERYTHING fun!

On one occasion, we were laughing so loud and so long as we signed books and visited with folks that two staff members from the Robin's Donuts shop came over to see what was going on.

So come by to say 'Hi' today. We're there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We won't buy you a donut, but we will give yo a hug. Hugs Are Free - and they don't go to your hips!

Here's Dionne and me - in February at a Pasqua Hospital gift shop signing
