Catherine Cooke of Walkerton was diagnosed with cancer, and basically told that there was little or no hope.
Instead of waiting for death she opted to spend an inheritance from her mother on private health care in India.
The treatment is now close to being complete and the cancer is almost "non-existent."
Something tells me this family will not be very impressed when Health Minister George Smitherman tries to sell them on another McGuinty government in October.

Too bad Catherine Cooke wasn't just looking for cricket money.
