Helen's Story - I got married in 1969, went to University of Manitoba and shortly after, my husband and I began teaching in a small Manitoba town, Prawda. I quit teaching to have two kids but while the kids were growing up, I continued to substitute teach in every school in Steinbach and area. Eventually, I went back to teaching full-time and loved every minute of it. Well, almost every minute minus doing report cards and winter supervision duty! To read more, click on the file below.
Marion's Story - My personal story starts with a cold winter night at work thinking I had gotten frostbite on my hands after being in the cold. I did not think it was that cold but my hands were blue. I went to a doctor and he told me I had Raynauds and to try and keep my hands warm. At this time in 1989 I was a Winnipeg Transit bus driver so being in the cold was something I did every day. In 1992 I noticed two things, I was going through a roll of Tums a day and later found out I had bad reflux. To read more, click on the file below.
