John EDMEADS, Physician (1936-2006)
Gifted healer and teacher who was considered the world's expert in headaches and migraines once described his own lingering agony as 'still flapping its bat-like wings behind my brow'
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Women make up roughly 75 per cent of the three million migraine sufferers in Canada. So why is it that new drugs to help manage acute migraines can, for some women at certain times, make their headaches worse? Doctor John EDMEADS, Canada's migraine guru, had an unvarnished answer: "Most physicians are men."
Not all headaches are created equal, and as many as 40 per cent of menopausal women who take migraine medication may find their headache getting worse. There are ways around the problem, such as hormone replacements with lower doses of estrogen, but "it's amazing how many neurologists out there don't know that," Doctor EDMEADS once observed.
Find a doctor who has what you have, goes the old saw; the empathy will be automatic. A migraineur himself, Doctor EDMEADS knew what his patients were going through. Deploying his customary oratorical flourish, he once described his own lingering agony as "still flapping its bat-like wings behind my brow." A patient's first few weeks off pain pills were "seven purple shades of hell."
A gifted healer, a much loved and widely admired teacher, administrator, expert witness and all-around wit, Doctor EDMEADS was considered Canada's, if not the world's, pre-eminent medical specialist in headaches and migraines. Anyone needing a brain doctor on the day of his memorial service in Toronto was likely out of luck; they were all packed into a room honouring a man lauded as a physician's physician and neurologist's neurologist, yet without a whiff of pretence.
"Doctors got better at diagnosing migraines because of John," said Canadian neurologist David Dodick, who completed a fellowship in headache studies under Doctor EDMEADS a decade ago and now works at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "Ask anyone who the most gifted speaker on the subject was, and they would all say 'Dr. EDMEADS.' I've never heard a negative word about him, ever, around the world."
A neurologist at Toronto's Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre for 39 years and professor at the University of Toronto's medical faculty, where he won two Silver Shovel teaching awards for best clinical lecturer, Doctor EDMEADS knew well that even the word migraine can weaken knees. It was largely on his watch that the skull-splitting condition was understood, and has been proven as a neurological disorder, not just something triggered by too much gin, chocolate or a whiney two-year-old.
Even with recent advances, an estimated one-third of sufferers do not seek treatment, and migraine continues to be misunderstood, undertreated, and underdiagnosed.
The Migraine Association of Canada has noted some painful numbers: In Canada, 3.2 million adults and 250,000 children suffer from migraines, and absenteeism and loss of productivity resulting from migraines cost the economy $20 every second, or about $600-million annually.
Last year's Canadian Migraine in Women Survey alarmingly suggested that 32 per cent of Canadian adult women suffer from debilitating migraines (the worldwide ratio is 18 per cent of women and 6 per cent of men, but the prevalence for women is thought to be vastly understated).
Dr. EDMEADS placed hope in a relatively new class of migraine medications called triptans, but "he was not the sort of guy who sat in a lab and looked at molecules," said Valerie South, a nurse and author of the 1996 book Migraine. "He was the king of bedside manner. He let his patients do the talking."
Among them was Catherine Cripps, who was referred to Doctor EDMEADS after two other doctors were stumped by her "indescribable" pains. "He nailed it right away," recalled Ms. Cripps, who was diagnosed as having 11 leaks in her spinal cord -- with no cure. Even so, "he counselled me in such a way as to give me strength and hope. I will always be grateful for that."
Painkillers had their place, but Doctor EDMEADS felt that some migraineurs may be better off taking no medication at all. He and other specialists recognized that up to 40 per cent of Canadian sufferers have medication-induced headaches from both prescribed and over-the-counter drugs.
"These patients feel they have to take something for pain all the time, but in this case, the medication may not be doing them any good," he told a 1995 news conference. In one study, six months after withdrawal, about 70 per cent of patients reported they were able to cope without painkillers. "They still have migraines, but they don't feel out of control."
So what did Doctor EDMEADS take for his own head pain? Would you believe Alka-Seltzer? "It's liquid and it goes right to the root of the trouble immediately," chuckled his sister, Marilyn HENRY. "He believed in it religiously."
Neither did he gloss over garden-variety tension headaches, which affect about one-third of adults. They may not enjoy the pride of place of migraines, "but they do represent a very significant problem for many people. The pain is less severe than that of migraine, and the picture of an attack less dramatic, but the long-term suffering of someone with truly intrusive tension-type headaches can often be equivalent to that due to the migraine."
Two brain-related events figured in Doctor EDMEADS's formative years: He stuttered as a child and adolescent. Speech therapy and lots of practice helped him overcome the condition -- in spades. He went on to win pretty much every teaching award in the field (yet felt compelled to complete a master's degree in education at the age of 60). And his father died of a brain tumour while Dr. EDMEADS was a 25-year-old resident. As a family member, he was not permitted to treat his father.
Neurology had been a fairly popular specialty at the time of his graduation from the University of Toronto's medical school in 1959 but headache wasn't. The story goes that one day 45 or so years ago, Doctor EDMEADS was meeting with his mentor, Doctor Henry BARNETT. A pharmaceutical salesman entered and asked Doctor BARNETT to conduct a study on a new migraine drug. "There's your expert," Dr. BARNETT quickly sidestepped, pointing to his young protégé.
Dr. EDMEADS "accepted the challenge and did the study and became an expert," said Don COWAN, a former physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook (a position held by Doctor EDMEADS from 1994 to 2001.)
In 1988, Doctor EDMEADS was part of a medical team that testified on behalf of Kenneth James PARKS, a 24-year-old who had stabbed his mother-in-law to death and pleaded not guilty by reason of somnambulism. The sleepwalking defence worked, and Mr. PARKS was acquitted.
Dr. EDMEADS also researched the history of migraines for the World Headache Alliance and found many historical figures who suffered from the disorder, perhaps even having been influenced by it. They included painter Vincent Van Gogh, writers Virginia Woolf and Lewis Carroll, Napoleon, Julius Caesar and Elvis Presley.
It was not for nothing that Doctor EDMEADS bore a striking resemblance to actor Alan Alda, down to the tall and lanky frame. Like Hawkeye Pierce, Doctor EDMEADS's wit was irreverent but never cutting. A sampling, courtesy of his friend of 40 years, psychiatrist Fred SHEFTEL:
Hospitalized with his cancer, Doctor EDMEADS asked Friends not to call his wife after 10 p.m. "She'll think it's the hospital telling her I'm dead"
A medical expert was "anyone who comes from more than 50 miles away with slides"
Most lectures "are characterized by the information on the slide going from the mouth of the lecturer to the ears of the listener without going through the minds of either"
The extent of injuries and disabilities arising from post-traumatic whiplash disorder "depends on the kind of car the driver sees in the rearview mirror -- Ford or Mercedes."
Did Doctor EDMEADS diagnose his own terminal condition? No one knows, but he did come to work one day and instructed his loyal assistant, Hazel JOFFE, to throw away the slew of awards, plaques and citations on his wall, calling them "pure vanity." She took them down, but moved them to a residents' room at Sunnybrook named for him.
Dr. EDMEADS was the first Canadian to serve as president of the American Headache Society, which awarded him one final, posthumous kudo: The 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Dr. John Gordon EDMEADS was born in Toronto on April 15, 1936, and died there on November 16, 2006, of acute leukemia. He was He leaves his wife, Catherine BERGERON, a neuropathologist; a son, Christopher; brother Ralph and sister Marilyn HENRY.

BERKELMANS, Janine
April 3, 2004 In loving memory of my dear wife Who meant everything to me in life
It was two years ago today
The angels came and took you away.
Even though it's only been 2 years
Not a day goes by I don't shed a tear
When God chose you he chose the best
So in my heart I know you are at rest.
Deeply missed and lovingly remembered by your husband, Harry.

Anastasia WAWRYSHYN, 99: Hard worker lived for family
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
Every Friday, Anastasia WAWRYSHYN's grandchildren would race out of their classrooms at Saint_Josaphat Catholic School, across Franklin Ave. and straight to Baba's kitchen.
There, they'd be greeted with a big smile and an even bigger bowl of her light-as-a-cloud potato-filled perohy.
Of course, they couldn't eat just one. And no matter how many of those mouthwatering delicacies the four of them gobbled up, they knew there would be plenty more to take home for dinner.
"Baba always made enough for everybody," Michael WAWRYSHYN said of his mother who was much loved for her made-from-scratch traditional Ukrainian cooking and her open-hearted hospitality.
WAWRYSHYN died November 3, two months before her 100th birthday. She'd suffered a stroke 10 days earlier, the same day a sister passed away in Ukraine.
Family was everything for WAWRYSHYN who was born in the tiny Ukrainian village of Teplyts, January 3, 1907, in what was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The eldest of nine children only six survived to adulthood -- she understood full well what it meant to struggle. Her parents were poor farmers who eked out a living on the the land, exchanging eggs and milk or freshly picked forest mushrooms for the things they couldn't produce themselves, said WAWRYSHYN of his mother's early years.
WAWRYSHYN decided to leave her beloved Ukraine after the death of her intended. He'd immigrated to Argentina to log the forests but died of malaria.
Riding by horse and buggy along dirt roads to the nearest train station, the feisty and tenacious 19-year-old travelled to Germany and then to England where she boarded a ship for Halifax. A stranger in a strange land who didn't know a living soul in Canada and didn't speak the language, the young woman forged ahead travelling west to Saskatoon in search of work. En route, WAWRYSHYN befriended a young Ukrainian woman and the two kindred spirits became fast Friends. Those were difficult but happy days, said her son. Both worked as domestics, with WAWRYSHYN taking a job in a boarding house for farm children attending high school in the city. She always looked forward to Sunday. It was spent at church, which was the centre of life for young Ukrainian immigrants who had settled in Saskatoon. After services, they attended teas and concerts and enjoyed the company of new Friends.
WAWRYSHYN and her friend later moved to Toronto, where she met and married her husband Prokip.
The couple moved to Franklin Ave. in 1939 and lived there all their lives. At the time, the majority of their neighbours were Ukrainian, settling in the close-knit west-end community near large factories where they could find work. Their three children, Michael, Mary and Anne, were born and raised in the old neighbourhood.
Having completed only Grade 3, WAWRYSHYN was passionate when it came to learning, determined her children would be well-educated and have the opportunities she didn't, said her son, a retired Toronto high school teacher.
A deeply pious woman, WAWRYSHYN's religious and social life revolved around the church. She was a long-time and active parishioner at Saint_Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral down the street from the family's home. She sang in the choir and was a founding member of the cathedral's chapter of the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League of Canada. "She just wanted a chance to make a better life and was happy to have it," said her son.
Deeply proud of her Ukrainian roots, WAWRYSHYN passed on her love of her homeland and its rich culture to her children who attended Ukrainian schools and were involved in various community organizations.
A serious individual devoted to her family, she was fiercely independent. WAWRYSHYN continued to work part-time until the age of 71 even though there was no need, her son said.
"And she refused to cash in her first pension cheque because she said she didn't need it," he added.
"The Depression and World War 2 shattered the dreams of bringing her family to Canada. Over the years, she helped support her family, sending parcels of food and clothing and a few dollars hidden in the lining of a coat, where she prayed they wouldn't be discovered and confiscated by Soviet officials. The packages included dozens of kerchiefs -- the colourful woollen scarves typically worn by women in villages across Ukraine. They were as valuable as gold back home. "Those kerchiefs paid for two houses there," said WAWRYSHYN. His mother never returned to her homeland.
Predeceased by her husband, WAWRYSHYN leaves her son and his wife Helen, daughter Mary BERKETA and husband Ron and daughter Anne; grandchildren Olena WAWRYSHYN and husband Oleh LESZCZYSZYN, Oksana WAWRYSHYN, Stephanie DAWE and husband Greg and Christine YUZWIN and husband Nick as well as great-grand_sons Matthew and Michael DAWE. She also leaves behind her sister Kateryna, 94, in Ukraine, as well as many nephews and nieces.

Bricklayer dead after shootout
Ontario's police watchdog is investigating the death of Andrew SCHUSTER of London.
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter, Tues., October 31, 2006
Andrew SCHUSTER, a bricklayer described as "polite and always smiling," was found shot dead Sunday -- the day he would have celebrated his 44th birthday -- after a shootout with London police.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, probing the deadly standoff which began Saturday night and ended Sunday, yesterday wouldn't confirm SCHUSTER was the dead man who exchanged gunfire with police for about half an hour.
But several sources said SCHUSTER lived at 613 Cheapside Street, and that he was the man found dead. His name was listed on the mailbox.
The man's identity may be confirmed after an autopsy is completed today or tomorrow, said Special Investigations Unit representative Rose BLISS.
Neither police nor the Special Investigations Unit have commented on what began as a domestic-dispute call to police Saturday at 6: 30 p.m.
At 5: 30 a.m. Sunday, police found SCHUSTER dead inside the home.
The Special Investigations Unit hasn't determined whether he died from police bullets or a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
There was little doubt in the neighbourhood who was the victim in the deadly shootout.
"He lived there and every day Andrew was in my store buying Players Light cigarettes," said Elvira BERKOVSKI, who operates a kiosk at a nearby service station.
"He helped my son get some summer work. I think he was in construction work. Sometimes you see people happy, then unhappy the next day. Not him. He was always smiling and polite.
Special Investigations Unit investigator Reg McKEEN said four forensic officers were trying to determine the bullet that killed SCHUSTER.
"That's what my people are trying to establish, if it was a police bullet or not," McKEEN said. "We'll be present (in London) to establish a cause and manner of death."
McKEEN wouldn't say if a weapon had been recovered.
London police couldn't comment since the investigation is now in the Special Investigations Unit's hands.
It's the 11th time this year that the Special Investigations Unit has taken over a London police investigation.
During the standoff, police drove a light armoured vehicle onto the front lawn of the home in which the man was barricaded.
Neighbours said police used it as a shield when gunfire erupted.
It was the first time the force had used the vehicle, given to it a year ago by defence contractor General Dynamics, said London police Const. Amanda Pfeffer.
Chronology Of The Death Of Andrew SCHUSTER
Saturday
6: 30 p.m.: Police respond to a domestic dispute at 613 Cheapside Street, just east of Adelaide Street, and find a man barricaded alone in the home.
7-10: 20 p.m.: Police negotiate with a man inside.
10: 20 p.m.: Police and the man inside exchange gunfire for about a half hour.
10: 50 p.m.: Negotiations resume.
Sunday
5: 30 a.m.: Police find a man inside the house dead from a gunshot wound.
6: 05 a.m.: Ontario's police watchdog agency, the Special Investigations Unit, is called in by London police. The Special Investigations Unit reviews police handling of cases involving death or serious injury.
Yesterday
With police guarding the crime scene, four Special Investigations Unit forensic investigators search for evidence at the home to help determine whether the man died from a police bullet or a self-inflicted gunshot.
Today
Special Investigations Unit will attend the man's autopsy in London.
