BENK, Veronique, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dr. Veronique BENK passed away on October 4, 2005 in Toronto with her loving and devoted husband by her side after a courageous fight against breast cancer and leukemia.
She leaves her husband of 13 years, Dr. Paul FORTIN and their two beautiful children Aude (age 6) and Hadrien (age 7). In France she leaves her parents Andree and Jean-Marie BENK and her brother Jerome, his wife (Celine) and their six children. She also leaves her mother-in-law (Pauline PAQUIN) and her husband (Andre COTE,) her sister-in-law (Lucie FORTIN) and partner (Pierre PARENT) and their three children.
Dr. BENK was a radiation oncologist at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre where she specialized in the treatment of breast cancer. She was also an Adjunct Scientist at I.C.E.S. where she studied this same condition. Her patients and colleagues will remember her as an extremely caring and committed physician.
Veronique was born in St.-Quentin (Aisne), France. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Lille in France, did her specialty training in oncology at the prestigious Institut Gustave-Roussy in Paris, and at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. During her training, she found time to volunteer for one year as a physician and teacher in Burma.
It was in Boston where she met Paul, the love of her life, at the first hockey game that she had ever attended. They were married in France and moved to Canada where they were on faculty at McGill University in Montreal before moving to Toronto.
After her initial diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, she returned to work with a renewed interest in finding ways to improve the quality of life for persons living with cancer. As part of this work, and after her diagnosis of leukemia, she became involved in Wellspring, a centre that supports individuals and their families living with cancer.
Veronique's boundless curiosity spanned the history of ancient civilizations, to romanesque cathedrals, to baroque music, to the diversity of cultures in the modern world. Her healing journey was accompanied by a desire to grow in her spiritual journey and to train as a cancer guide.
Veronique's accomplishments are many but the one she valued most was her countless Friendships and her familial life with Paul and her two "Amours". Despite her recurrent illnesses, Veronique took every opportunity to enjoy her precious time with her family. She was totally devoted to Aude, Hadrien and Paul.
We are grateful for the network of Friends and supporters in Toronto, in Canada and abroad. Special thanks to Dr. Eugenia PILIOTIS, Dr. Mary VACHON, Annette VATTER, Lorraine PAQUIN, Terry SEID and Sister Daniela and the Carmelite Missionary Sisters who provided Friendship, material and spiritual support.
The visitation will be at Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto (416) 489-8733, on Sunday, October 9, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The celebration mass of Veronique's life will be held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 354 St. Clair Avenue West (at Bathurst) on Thanksgiving Monday at 2: 30 p.m. Another service is being planned on Saturday, October 15 in Quebec City - details to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Veronique's name can be sent to Wellspring, 81 Wellesley Street East, Toronto, Ontario, M4Y-1H6, website: www.wellspring.ca.
