#5in5 - Five Recovery Stories in 5 Days - Day 5 

Five Recovery Stories in 5 Days
National Mental Health Week - May 4 - 10
We Want Other Families To Learn From Our Experiences


"There's nothing to fear." These are the words I often hear myself saying as I try to share what my experience at Ontario Shores has been like.

Simply put, it changed my life and it changed my son's life.

Shadi, my son has had a very difficult time, especially during his late teenage years. Between 19 and 21 he was really in a difficult place. He seemed devastated and was losing hope quickly. His story began when he had a severe intracranial hemorrhage caused by an aneurism at age 11. He went into a deep coma and was declared brain dead. Watching him living like that for a year was one of the most difficult things that I had to do.
