CHEO patients meet ‘Awesome’ Boccia player


For Jake Periard, a student at Farley Mowat Public School in Nepean, in CHEO for an eye infection, the experience was “awesome.”

He was enthralled by Paralympic boccia player Marco Dispaltro’s equipment as they plotted where to find a quiet hallway to share a quick demonstration.

“Marco was very cool,” he said. “I had to stay in bed all day yesterday. Today was the funnest day of my life.”
