Join the conversation on CBC Radio

BLOOM contributor Jennifer Johannesen is being interviewed on CBC Radio One's Ontario Today this Thursday, Jan. 19 about her book No Ordinary Boy and experiences raising Owen (above), a boy with multiple disabilities who died at age 12 in 2010. One of the CBC call-in themes? "The pressures placed on families (created by ourselves and others) to continue working on ‘improving’ our children and moving towards sometimes impossible goals," writes Jennifer on her blog YES or NO.  

Calls from North America will be taken this Thursday between 12 noon and 1 p.m. at

The show can be heard on FM 99.1.

Jennifer is kicking off our BLOOM speaker series with a talk on Wed. February 15, 7-9 p.m. in the Family Resource Centre at Holland Bloorview. It's called Redefining success: Decide for yourself what really matters. RSVP to ndyke@hollandbloorview.ca.
