What a wake up call. Just announced on TV and the internet.
"Joannie Rochette's Winter Olympic hopes have taken a tragic turn.
Therese Rochette, mother of the Canadian figure skater, has reportedly died overnight, two days before her daughter was to take the ice in the women's singles competition.
Rochette’s mother had arrived in Vancouver on Saturday with her husband, Normand, according to information from a Skate Canada news conference at the Vancouver Games on Sunday.
She apparently passed away suddenly early in the morning of a heart attack."
She was only 55 ! ! !
I am so glad I found SparkPeople. I am 53 and have not been taking care of myself. I was too embarassed to be checked out because I KNEW it would not be good. I am well on my way to good health and cringe when I think that this could have happened to ME.
I want to tell EVERYONE... DON"T WAIT... DO SOMETHING BEFORE IT"S TOO LATE !
