Hospitals are not well known for being "fun" places to go. In fact, most people dread walking through hospital doors even when entering as a visitor versus a patient. Dionne and Graham decided they were going to make it fun and cheerful to go for chemotherapy and testing, and make it a good time for everyone else too; doctors, nurses, friends, family, other patients, innocent bystanders:) Graham has been sharing e-mails since late last year, documenting their creative and catchy themes and Dionne's progress.

I personally loved the Mexico theme in honor of their personal chef Mariana
One June 11th Dionne walked in the Canadian Cancer's Relay for Life, where hundreds of supporters showed up to support other survivors, current fighters, and those that were honored in memory.
