Media advisory - Sandrine Craig's memorial service



    OTTAWA, May 22 /CNW Telbec/ -

    
    WHAT:   Memorial service to mark the 10th anniversary of Sandrine Craig's
            organ donation, which helped six people in need of a transplant.

    WHEN:   Sunday, May 24, 3:00 PM (Eastern)

    WHERE:  Pinecrest Cemetery
            2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa

    WHY:    Ottawa resident Sandrine Craig was only 11 years old when her
            young life was cut tragically short in a school bus. However,
            thanks to the decision by Sandrine's family to donate her organs,
            the lives of six Canadians were saved or forever improved. This
            gift of life from a young girl brought together the City of
            Ottawa and shone a national spot light on the value of organ
            donations. On May 24th, Sandrine's family will hold a public
            memorial service to mark the 10th Anniversary of Sandrine's Gift
            and remind people of the need for organ and tissue donations.
