Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada – 23 October, 2017 – Family love is something that is very deep and strong. It is a bond that keeps family members together and helps them withstand any physical, emotional or spiritual challenges that come their way. They say ‘you only know someone that truly loves you if they stand by your side when you are down,’ this quote is illustrated evidently in Donna Jean Gerrier’s emotional story about family love titled ‘Eggs on the wall…for the love of family.’
Eggs on the Wall . . . For the Love of Family is about sacrifice, responsibility, and the compassion that Donna Jean had for her elderly parents. They embraced humour and a love of life, which was better than medicine.
Her mother was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. Her father, a Parkinsonian, cared for her mother until he suffered a stroke. This resulted in both parents being immobile and confined to wheelchairs. Donna Jean left a thriving career as well as her study of vocal performance and chose to be her parents’ main caregiver when their needs surpassed the home care mandate. The days unfolded from dealing with health care bureaucracy to managing her parents’ high-level care, hiring private workers, running a household, and managing the finances.
Their lives were not without outrageous experiences. Donna Jean tells an intriguing story of how her father nearly lost his life in Las Vegas and the horror she and her father lived through being arrested in Stockholm, Sweden. It was assumed they were Russian spies, as well as husband and wife.
The family dog, Sir Samwell, played a major part in their lives. Donna Jean continues her long-time passions to end violence against animals and women. She also advocates for stronger laws concerning their safety and rights. She shares how she sees the world today and emphasises the importance of supporting each other, avoiding isolation.
