BIANCHET, Ivana Maria
It is with immense sadness and endless tears that we announce the passing of Ivana Maria BIANCHET at Toronto General Hospital, at 1: 00 p.m., Sunday, August 21, 2005, of acute liver failure. Beloved daughter of Egidio and Elsa BIANCHET, devoted and loving big sister of Stephen BIANCHET, dear niece of Eugenio and Dina BIANCHET in North Bay and Marianna ZUCCHET, Elsa BIANCHET, and Ceserina MOLENT in Italy, cherished cousin of Jerry BIANCHET and Daniela BIANCHET in North Bay, of Luisa BRUNET, Alice ZUCCHET, Carlo ZUCCHET, Roberto ZUCCHET, Linda MARZOTTO, and Denise DE BARTOLI in Italy, of Relina SARTOR in Toronto, of Gina SARTOR in Brampton, and of Carmela SARTOR, Luisa VITALE, Jimmy VITALE, and Christine ZENI in Bolton. Ivana was also a close and dear friend of Connie LABRIOLA, Grace DUKE, and Nancy and Mary BRIENZA, as well as their families, and she will also be sadly missed by other relatives and countless Friends, including her co-workers at Canada Post. Ivana was born on July 12, 1958 in Cordenons, Pordenone, Italy, in her paternal grandmother "Nona Nuta's" house, and was delivered by midwives. She emigrated to Canada in 1960 at the age of two with her parents Egidio and Elsa, who settled in Toronto after three years in North Bay, where they had joined their brother and sister Eugenio and Dina, respectively, who had married and been together in Canada since 1956. Ivana's parents added a son, Stephen, to the family in 1964. Ivana was a happy though quiet child who enjoyed school, which was negatively affected when she was very young by her lack of English and later in her teens by lengthy stays in hospital. Despite these setbacks, she always enjoyed learning new things and, throughout her life, took great care and consideration in everything she did. Ivana had the profound misfortune of being stricken with a number of serious illnesses throughout most of her life. After being diagnosed with kidney disease, she had her first kidney transplant in March 1971, at the age of 12, at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto; when that kidney failed some 22 years later, she received, at Toronto General Hospital, a second transplant in September 1993, which was donated, gladly and without hesitation, by her brother Stephen. Probably sometime in the 1970's or 1980's, she received tainted blood in Toronto through a transfusion and was infected with the Hepatitis C virus, the devastating effects of which started to manifest themselves fully in the last few years of her life. Sometime in the 1990's, some basal cell carcinomas (a type of skin cancer) were discovered on her body. She became diabetic and she also later was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (detected in early 2003). Possibly about the same time, she was also infected with the E-B virus. To compound her miseries, her cancers and viral infections were exacerbated and possibly facilitated by her decades of immunosuppression. Her last several years were spent courageously battling all of these illnesses, requiring innumerable trips to the hospital and many tests and procedures. This included four rounds of chemotherapy treatments, commencing in October 2004, to treat her lymphoma. Despite her many afflictions, Ivana was not a walking collection of illnesses. Ivana was a vibrant, cheerful, caring person, with a unique, musical laugh. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend. Ivana never complained and was forever brave and optimistic that she would prevail over the assault on her body. Her family and Friends certainly gave her the unconditional love and support to do so. She was a very good listener and patient with everyone. She placed the cares of her loved ones above her own and unselfishly was always concerned about their happiness. Everyone who knew Ivana loved her. She had a variety of interests and pursuits and two of her favourite destinations were Niagara Falls as well as North Bay, where she enjoyed visiting her relatives. Shopping was one of her joys, especially later in her battle, probably because deciding on a purchase was one of the few things in life over which she had any control. Despite all the tribulations with regard to her health, Ivana always found the goodness within herself and others, and loved to share life, laughter, and good times. She will be sadly missed by all whose lives she touched. The family will receive relatives and Friends at Ward Funeral Home at 4671 Hwy. 7, Woodbridge, Ontario, on Wednesday, August 24, between 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and on Thursday, August 25, between 7-9 p.m. Funeral to be held at 10: 00 a.m. on Friday, August 26 at St. Roch's Catholic Church at 2889 Islington Ave., North York, Ontario. Entombment at Beechwood Cemetery at 7241 Jane Street, Concord, Ontario. Many thanks to the doctors, nurses, and other support staff at the University Health Network and The Hospital for Sick Children who cared for Ivana over her 35-year heroic battle with the serious illnesses noted above. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Canadian Liver Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Kidney Foundation of Canada, or the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Boy drowns on jungle tour
The tour operators next day were taking more children on the same 'safe' tour.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter; and Canadian Press
A Niagara falls boy with London family ties drowned on a family vacation in the Dominican Republic last week after being pulled underwater by a strong current during a countryside tour. Adam VITATERNA, 11, died after jumping off a small waterfall last Wednesday while on a countryside tour with two siblings and his parents, who looked on in horror.
The family had been vacationing at a resort in Puerto Plata.
VITATERNA, whose funeral is today, has maternal grandparents and other relatives in London.
Krista WALL, who was on the tour with the family and about 10 other people, jumped in the water to try to save VITATERNA, coming achingly close.
"I touched him, but I wasn't able to pull him up," said the Waterloo-area woman.
A doctor in the group performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, but couldn't revive the boy.
"We had to carry his body through the jungle back to where the vans were and call the ambulance," said WALL.
The safari tour last Wednesday gave tourists a chance to see the countryside and concluded with the waterfalls.
Tourists held onto a rope as they waded through the water to jump off a series of ledges. It looked safe enough, but Andrew VITATERNA, the boy's father, later discovered it had recently rained, making the currents more powerful.
He said he watched helplessly as his son, who was a strong swimmer, was pulled under the waist-high water.
He screamed at the tour guides to help, but they seemed to be arguing among themselves.
It took nearly an hour before the boy's body was taken to a hospital. It was too late.
"It felt like hours," VITATERNA said.
He and his wife are still looking for answers and warning tourists about the perils of vacationing in Third World countries.
"We worry about whether we go to a three-star resort or a four-star, a five-star," he said. "Little do we know what's outside the walls of the resort. You're playing with fire."
Almost as terrible as the boy's death was the fact that the next day the tour operator, Allegria S.A. Tours, was booking children on the same tour, said WALL.
"They said it was safe for the children and not to worry," she said.
Allegria S.A. Tours could not be reached for comment.
WALL returned to Canada on the same flight as the family Monday.
She said she didn't know them before the vacation, but they have since become close.
In his death notice, VITATERNA was described as a cherished young boy who loved soccer, hockey and his guinea pig Sammie.
"He had an adventurous spirit, a loving soul and he touched the hearts of all he met. God now has a new angel in heaven," the notice said.
