Clara CIRASELLA forged circle of Friends
Ailing woman's devoted pals formed care group
There were lineups to see her before she died
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Clara CIRASELLA decided she wanted to die as she lived: surrounded by Friends.
She collected people. She was fun and funny and had an infectious, winning grin. She made a point of getting to know just about everyone who crossed her path, be they young or old, gay or straight, the telephone repair person or the pair of homeless women who frequented Annette St. when she lived there.
She lived full throttle, growing up in Cooksville (now Mississauga), later screaming through its streets in her Austin Mini, then hurtling herself at different times throughout Europe, South America and southern Africa, always laughing, always in-your-face opinionated and always with her camera.
She made her money through real estate -- buying young and buying smart -- and after a couple of unsuitable 9 to 5 jobs, by selling promotional products. She was the company's top salesperson in the country. But she also set up a photography studio in the gracious home she bought at Avenue Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W., where she could indulge in her passion for portraits and especially the wedding photos that allowed her to expose her sentimental side and her own love of family.
Her first diagnosis of cancer in 1995 emboldened her. "I'm alive," she told her many, many Friends. "This is a second chance. I'm going for the gusto." It carried her through a bone marrow transplant in the year 2000. That and her mischievous sense of humour. To startle her nurses, she left joke-store fake lit cigarettes under the hospital bedding and nonchalantly placed a lifelike plastic white mouse on her shoulder.
But the transplant meant that when the cancer reoccurred a couple of years later, her only treatment to control the tumour growth was radiation and there wasn't much that was positive about the prognosis.
And just after Christmas 2003, her health took another dip, the crisis occurring during a rare time alone. She phoned her older brother, Carman, who raced to her home and phoned the ambulance. She was rushed to Princess Margaret Hospital, hospitalized, diagnosed with a tumour in her spleen and given a blood transfusion.
She never forgot the feeling of being ill and frightened and solo and decided she would never experience it again. This champagne-loving people person had been doing some serious reading about care teams while in Princess Margaret Hospital, and she had decided that she, too, would like to have people in place, not so much to help her, she rationalized, as to help Roxana MARTINEZ, her partner of seven years, who was holding down two jobs as well as taking on the increasingly exhausting task of caregiver.
CIRASELLA turned to a friend she knew to be organized as well as compassionate.
"I was very honoured when she picked me," said Anne KEREKES, a friend of 15 years who became the volunteer co-ordinator of a care-giving group called the Simba Circle. Simba means lion in Swahili and CIRASELLA chose the name for its strength as well as its memories of a life-changing safari photography tour she experienced in southern Africa.
CIRASELLA was an astute judge of character: KEREKES and her partner, Elaine FORD, became part of the core of a group of 25 Friends who received an information package in February 2004, entitled: You have been invited to join A Care Group for Clara CIRASELLA. Each member filled out a sheet itemizing his or her strengths and interests and availability.
The team was organized into two clusters. Those in Group A were assigned tasks. Some accompanied CIRASELLA to her Tuesday medical appointment; her brother shovelled her driveway; FORD took her to Home Depot and was always good for a laugh. Others provided foot rubs, Boston cream pie and Essiac tea. Rina MANCINI, a friend since they were pre-teens, helped with her finances, her sister-in-law with income taxes. Members of Group B visited CIRASELLA and were instructed to call her directly while KEREKES brokered who did what via email and issued weekly updates to everyone in the Circle.
"I loved the group. When I was at work, they took my place," said MARTINEZ.
"I'd send out an emergency email and get five or more responses within the hour," KEREKES recalled.
Joining the Simba Circle were Friends from university, Friends from her travels, ex-girlfriends, business associates, MARTINEZ's two children, even a friend she'd made at age one. "After a while, what I came to understand, was that what seemed to me to be a confusing blur of names, was to Clara, the integral relationships which formed the substance of her life," a friend from university, Gwen JENKINS, noted.
Typically, CIRASELLA soon posted a message in the weekly email to her Circle, reminding them that she was available to give as well as receive help.
"Keep in mind this Circle is Not all about me but an opportunity for all of us to help each other as life comes up," she wrote April 7 of last year. "Please remember that I am very willing to reciprocate whenever I can, I can keep people company on their doctor's appointment and /or a whole list of other things."
But by June 21, some of the rules had to be amended.
CIRASELLA was becoming tired from fielding so many phone calls from Friends. KEREKES had to institute new protocol: phone her to book a visit with CIRASELLA. Then, three days later, KEREKES emailed the Circle that CIRASELLA's cancer had spread to her lungs, that their friend needed "uplifting" and "fun visits" and not too many questions about her health.
Again, typically, CIRASELLA rallied and hired a contractor to build an addition for entertaining onto the back of her house. "I plan to kick butt from here on in," she wrote September 9. But on November 4 she told the Simba Circle she had been diagnosed with acute myoblastic leukemia and by December 22, KEREKES's weekly email stated that "visits are now for comfort and watch over Clara, not necessarily social."
But as usual, CIRASELLA cooked Christmas dinner for her Friends. On New Year's Eve, though, it was Chinese takeout. And when a fatigued CIRASELLA took to her bed, everyone scrambled on to it with her to greet midnight with champagne and noisemakers and toast their brave friend.
During the last Saturday she spent at home she decided she and Gwen JENKINS would make stew. "Of course, according to Clara, I was doing everything wrong," JENKINS said. "You'd think after 20 years (of Friendship) I would know you don't peel garlic."
CIRASELLA was admitted into Princess Margaret Hospital for the last time January 24. She died February 1 at age 51, but not before she said goodbye to all her Friends and families. There were lineups to see her. KEREKES remembered arriving at the hospital late from work -- 7 p.m. -- and having to wait until after 9: 30 to get in to see her friend.
The Simba Circle was coming full circle.
"The Circle allowed us to go through this with her," said FORD. "The group experienced something very profound together."
"This has taken away a little bit of my fear of dying," said MANCINI.
Carman CIRASELLA believed the Simba Circle prolonged his sister's life by months. And Clara CIRASELLA was adamant, even in her last hours, that they continue the Simba Circle after her death to help support MARTINEZ and to help others start their own Simba Circles.
They have already begun to do that.
