Vancouver and NYC Memorial Services

Hello all.

I’m still here.

Falling into a quieter routine. A routine! One that I will update you on shortly.

For now though,  just a quick mention of two events that have been scheduled.

First, there will be a service held for Naomi in Vancouver on Sunday, March 30th at 2pm at the Buddhist Temple located at 220 Jackson Avenue (near downtown).

And second, for those in and around New York, there will be a memorial service celebrating Naomi’s life and work on April 11, 2013 from 4-6PM at the Department of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU — 239 Greene Street. 8th floor.

For anyone who cannot attend either, but would like to do something special to honour Naomi’s memory, please consider one (or both) of the following:

1. A fund has been created in Naomi’s name at the Nanny Angel Network — an organization that provides free, professional relief childcare for mothers with cancer. Donate online or call 416.730.0025.

2. Write down or audio/video record a special memory of/story about Naomi and share it with her son, Nate.  This will make for such a precious gift to him in the years to come.  You can send your stories and remembrances to Jamie Berthe (jb2621 [at], Kari Hensley (kari.hensley [at], and/or directly to me, Naomi’s husband, Mitchell Praw (mitchell.praw [at]

So many thanks.

    Thinking of you during this time. I miss Naomi very much and I am sending a hug and kiss to little Nate. You’ll always be in my thoughts and prayers. I have a picture of beautiful Naomi at my desk that I put up and look at her often. We met at princess margaret hospital, we were connected through our nurse Shelley Westergard. I was so honoured to have known her, even for a short little while and because of her, I will fight harder to stay healthy and happy – I am a breast cancer survivor. Sending light and love your way,
    Andrea Trozzo
