Success Stories



Ceceilia comes to our Adult Resource Centre, where she is an important part of the day-to-day activities. She loves crocheting and embroidering, and is a member of several groups at the Centre, including the Purple Hat Princess Society.

Ceceilia was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of three. This genetic condition (her grandfather, father, sister and late uncle have all been affected) started as a spot behind her left eye, and in the fall of 2014 had grown into a tumour. On November 3, 2014, Ceceilia had surgery and half of the tumour was removed. After undergoing radiation, the rest of the tumour, as well as two new ones, were gone!

The Brain Tumour Foundation was a great support for Ceceilia during her journey back to health. Through physical therapy, Ceceilia is able to walk without support and is happy to be back in her own home with her pets. She is back to enjoying her craft hobbies, and is thrilled to be coming back to ARC!

In January 2016, during a planning meeting with the Purple Hat Princess Society, Ceceilia suggested the proceeds from their upcoming Shrove Tuesday fundraiser go to the Brain Tumour Foundation. Ceceilia was instrumental in organizing and raising over $300 to this worthwhile cause! Congratulations Ceceilia!



Anne lives in Exeter in one of our group homes. She also attends the Adult Resource Centre in Dashwood five days per week. Anne has been a volunteer at Arc Angels since the doors opened in 2005. She volunteers every Friday morning from 10 am to 1 pm.

Some of Anne’s duties while at the thrift store are the sorting of clothes hangers and donated grocery bags which are used in the store. Anne also commented that she will help to hang up the donated clothing. Anne says that she really likes spending time with the other volunteers. Anne has her lunch with the other ladies and she says that her interaction with them is most enjoyable!

Anne is proud of the fact that she can go to and from Arc Angels independently and that she can also perform all of her volunteer duties without any support from her staff. Way to go Anne!!
