In meeting a fellow caregiver, author Mike Barnes found a hero without her cape

‘Now, my heroes are less likely to perform the blatant prodigies of Baun-Bligh-Duc and more likely to manifest the quiet radiance of a skinny, white-haired woman I will call Joan. Joan is in her early 70s.

A wonderful article by Mike Barnes in The Globe and Mail. Read in full here.
