Special thank you to Dr. Harb for his excellent care. Norm enjoyed extra years because of you, Dr. Harb! Norm wanted to say thank you to the girls at "Club Chemo", he loved you all! You made his days at the clinic as happy as they possibly could be. We will never forget you! Thank you, Dr. Darren Martin and Dr. Pat Phelan, for your care and compassion; to EMH for the care they gave Norm these final months and to the Palliative Care Unit at The Moncton Hospital.
